Terrible.
11 September 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I really do hate short films. And this one's no better than the millions of other boring student films sitting under some fat kid's bed.

I didn't find this funny at all, just boring. And when I say boring, I mean REALLY boring. It goes for 10 minutes, and I was already tempted to turn it off after the first minute.

Okay, so I know it's just a student film, and it's Kevin Smith's first piece of work, but that doesn't make it any better.

I suppose you should only bother watching this if you're a die-hard Kevin Smith fan. But I assure you, you won't bother watching it again!
