Yet another one-joke parody
8 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Why is it that young filmmakers think that one single joke can sustain ten minutes of film?

This short does just that, begging us to laugh over and over again at the prospect of supermarket bagging being a sport. I laughed when the joke was first presented to me. The silliness was cute.

Cuteness wear off... ...fast.

Yet, since this project comes from the reputable USC Film School, and it's exposed well, and it looks professionally made, it was shown in Cannes at the Kodak Emerging Filmmakers showcase. It certainly was a proper demonstration on how student's can properly exposed Kodak film stock. If intelligence-insulting commercials are the future for young filmmakers, then this film found its appropriate venue.

Kodak should be proud.
