Intriguing but flawed short film
11 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh Dem Watermelons is a short film revolving around watermelons (evidently spoofing racism). The song 'Oh Dem Watermelons' is played throughout the entire film while watermelons are shown in a myriad of situations. These are mostly humorous, but there are also a few moments that are thought-provoking. In short, the film is wild.

The music is sort of repetitive but works for the most part. The camera work could have been better... it was clearly low budget. The excessive shaking of the camera on some parts was distracting. The plot was really broken, but is not really the focus of the film. There were some really creative ideas; I got quite a few laughs. The intestines taken out of a watermelon, watermelon chasing people, and exploding watermelons were only a few of them.

Overall, the film is entertaining despite its numerous technical problems. It is unconventional and succeeds in gaining a place in the viewer's mind. Worth a watch if you stumble upon it.
