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>

Good film, one of the best I've seen.
16 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Good whether you like short films or not.

I really enjoyed it i thought it was very witty and handled the whole religion thing very well without causing any offence.

Worth watching at LEAST once.

You can see it on the atomfilms website Definitely one of the very best short films I've seen. The sets look so good that they could have come from a Hollywood studio.

Hope this was helpful to all those who want to see it. Id also recommend the angry kid series as that was a lot of other very good and may i add English (as am I) shorts.
