An Amusing Miniature
27 January 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This an amusing mini-feature that, while based on one very simple story idea, uses some good detail and creativity to make it worth watching. It also required some real dedication on the part of the performer who played the character taking "His First Ride" on the bicycle, since he had to pay the price for the creative ideas of the film-makers.

The various predicaments show a pretty good range of ideas, and most of them - at least to those who enjoy some good old-fashioned slapstick - are pretty funny as well. The settings also show good variety, and since they are all outdoors, it must have taken a good amount of effort to do all of the filming for such a short feature.

And, as short as it is, it builds up rather well, as each scene gets a little wilder than the previous one. Its liveliness and energy make it a pretty entertaining little piece of film.
