Adorable
30 November 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I thought this little short was absolutely adorable. It wasn't meant to be taken seriously - just a lighthearted caper. I thought David Bowie was lovely as Vic - made me laugh quite a few times. Overall, I thought the film was very cute and enjoyable.
