Storyline

While standing in the middle of the street contemplating the motto on a quarter, Robert is killed by an on-coming SUV. In the waiting room of the afterlife, a punctilious clerk, Gil, pulls up Robert's record on the computer and tells the young man that he's damned. Lots of little bad things have added up, and his score is negative. Robert bolts back to earth, with Gil and his colleagues in hot pursuit. Robert visits his girlfriend, drinks a smoothie with his dad, foils a robbery, and dances. His positive points are accumulating as Gil (and death) close in. Is it up or down for our Bobby? Little things can mean a lot. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Robert: Honey, I'm going to be going away for a little while.
Ashley: [sleepily] Okay.
Robert: Well a long while. Forever really... um... but we'll see each other again... I... I guess.
[pause]
Robert: Actually, that's not true. You see I, I didn't get enough points and I bought chocolate for the chocolate and I never danced and now they're going to take me away and I really don't think you'll be joining me in Hell, so... I think we might want to see other people.

Best Short in Toronto, too
28 December 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

First saw this at the Toronto Film Festival, and it was great. Better than some two hour features I saw there! This director is a talent to watch, I hope he is already working on a feature. I think you can see this little gem for yourself at atomfilms.com. It was there a few months ago.

I can't tell you too much about the story, cause I don't want to give it away! The actor was in those Doritos commercials, and some other stuff, he's very familiar. The writing is all there, and the acting by (forgive me, I don't know the names) the "purgatorial officer" was hilarious. You could tell that the people making the short were having fun. Well, if they weren't they sure looked it. Try to find this somewhere, you be glad you did.
