Storyline

Josh Silver (Heslov) is a thirty year old actor who hasn't had a job in two years, unless of course you count being the candlestick in the Disney Electric Light Parade. Making matters worse he hasn't had an erection in five months. His wife (Mathis) wants a baby, his parents want a grandchild. Things aren't going too well for him, but then Josh get's a call from his agent telling him he's arranged a meeting with Woody Allen. Woody just happens to be Josh's idol and he takes this as a sign that things are going to get better. With high hopes, Josh goes to see Woody... Written by Anonymous

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
