Great short film
17 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anyone deciding they need to write or direct a short needs to see this movie.

A perfect short - funny, with a deceptively simple and sweet story that is meticulously executed.

Melissa McCarthy was a great casting choice. Though I have not seen it in a few years, I remember thinking she was the cute, chubby girl who sat next to me in Catholic school who never really got "it", and never really got into trouble. However, everyone has their breaking point, which we saw in this movie. The best part about it, the character is not in on the joke (and in my opinion, when your actor is in on the joke, it's rarely funny.)

Quick, witty dialogue, great casting, good photography and good direction make this a totally enjoyable watch.

p.s. if you've seen John August's "Go", Melissa McCarthy is in that as well. There is a scene when two characters unexpectedly show up while the character played Melissa McCarthy is on the phone. Surprised by their visit, she says something to the effect of "Oh...Oh, God, I gotta go", a cool little nod/cross pollination of two great movies that would be missed if you hadn't seen both.
