OK but quite superficial
4 January 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A hypochondriac lives in a dusty apartment. On the roof she meets Wayne, who lives in a very clean apartment but keeps losing his underpants. Christine suspects that her ex-lesbian lover, Lisa, dresses as a man and has a lot of pants. The three come together in a confrontation where each is left unsatisfied.

This film is amusing and has a certain amount of energy but it seems more interesting in stimulating the audience through cheap tricks rather than character. The film has nudity, lesbian relationships, drug use and swearing. These make the film feel tough and energetic but it's all superficial.

The actors are good and they go along accordingly but their characters are basic clichés rather than real characters - the butch lesbian, the hypochondriac etc. They helped hold my interest but they weren't as good as they could have been.

Overall this is amusing and the ending is quite funny. It has a certain amount of energy but it is all very superficial and lacks the sort of depth that I need to get into a short more. It's OK but I really hoped for more from a short that seems to have been distributed around the world with some success.
