Directional Debut

Author: Scifier from New York, America

This film may not have delivered some earthshattering moments, but the eye Candy was great!!! If you accept this film for what it was ~ a directional first attempt and not some seasoned production you will be pleasently surprised! Give it a chance.

Delightful short film

Author: ceallaig-1 from USA
5 January 2004

This was great fun to watch -- funny, upbeat and with a twist ending. It was also fun playing 'spot the familiar faces' in the cast Ms. Furness assembled -- it's a pity the woman doesn't have more 'pull' in the artistic community, lol! I look forward to seeing more of her work both behind and in front of the camera -- I've been able to see some of her work from Australia, and she is also a fine actress as well as a writer/director.

If you get a chance to check this out, do so -- it's well worth your time!

Stifle the giggles

1/10
Author: samizdat7 from Melbourne, Australia
29 July 2003

Having had the unfortunate experience of seeing the premiere for this Miramax-produced vanity-short by a first-time director (gee, isn't she married to someone famous!?!) in her presence, I felt the need to stifle my giggles (as did much of the audience, I suspect). Simply put, it is crap. The concept is one which may seem a good idea to a commercially-minded first-year film student but it just does not make for an interesting short film. And even if it did, this is not it! Apart from being uninteresting, the massive hyper-overacting, together with the lurid score, means that it verges on being a farce without ever quite getting there. The film is technically excellent but with the talent available to it that it just not enough. The direction is totally uninspired, shot selection is appalling, each of the actors was clearly making a different movie to every other (no direction!) and the end result just doesn't work.
