Best short ever made!!!
9 February 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Michael Hertel, not listed, but what a great actor!!! This movie is by far the best shorts ever. The Directing is remarkable. A must see for everyone!!! What ever became of Michael Hertel??

This Movie appears just be a cute day with the boys at first. But the suspense builds and builds. The ending is a climax which will never be forgotten.
