Possibly the funniest film I've seen
28 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this film, it was with all the other Oscar-nominated short films for 2000, animated and live action. The set took about 2.5 hours to get through, and being the cream of the crop from the year, these were some brilliant, well polished movies, though I was ready to be done. The last film was Rejected. The opening sequence is simply the word "REJECTED" in a typewriter font shaking around as though it had been shot on a hand-held 8mm camera held by someone on speed, and the music, an orchestra at full tilt. Instantly, I knew something was different. Within 40 more seconds, my friend and I were doubled over in our seats and crying from laughter. I bought the DVD as soon as it was available to share with all of my friends and that disc has been played more than all of my other DVDs combined (I particularly enjoyed the director's commentary). It confuses a lot of people but elates the rest, but everyone can appreciate the last two minutes as a great piece of animated film.
