Pretty Good for a Short Film
7 February 2000 | by (E N D S V I L L E) – See all my reviews

"Waiting for Woody"- slightly above average short film whose cameos ultimately make the movie. Grant Heslov fit the role well. Some of the jokes lines are hilarious, while some don't work at all. Also, the "audition" scenario has been done before, and better. 6/10
