Uproariously funny

I saw this years ago at a short film film festival where it was playing alongside a film of my own. I thought it was one of the most hilariously funny things I had ever seen, and had surprisingly interesting characters.

I had no idea Scott Frank was involved in this, but I'm not surprised. The script was extremely intelligent and witty. It also features two of the funniest sight gags I have ever seen.

I gave this film a 10, partly to compensate for it's ludicrously low current rating, and partly because it really is excellent. This is one of the funniest short films I've ever seen, and also has a cool surprise ending.

How can you not love anything that has a theater group called "The Gippy Pokey Repertory Company"?
