For what it is, it is very good
21 March 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This certainly is an unusual little short that I recently watched on Turner Classic Movies. I happen to unintentionally record this short film that followed a full-length one. While usually I am NOT a big fan of musicals, I decided to give this one a try. Well I am certainly glad I did, as it was very unusual and quite sweet.

The film starts out with a very strange but very interesting musical number involving people getting out of bed and going to work. It worked quite well because of the way it was handled--very offbeat and also pretty funny seeing all the miserable people forcing themselves to go! The film follows people going into one particular company. In a very surreal scene, the boss and a lowly janitor get to talking and have a bet. The janitor says he can get a couple of employees to fall in love using a little "psychology". It's all in very good fun and it's also rather romantic.

Overall, a short worth seeing just because it is so unique and stylish--plus it has a nice sense of humor and some quirky little surreal elements that made me smile.
