Storyline

Kate (Dominique Swain) is the girl everyone loves to hate. As has become tradition, everyday she meets her friends Casey (James Franco) and Nick (Eric Christian Olsen) after school to trash the kids they dislike. But today is no ordinary day. Today, Kate has just been in a violent fight with her little sister (Beverley Mitchell), and now she's got plenty on her mind. When she poses the question, "What's the worst thing you've ever done to somebody else," the guys realize they're in for some excitement. As they each reveal some humorous but cruel anecdotes about their pasts, the mood slightly tenses up, and their memories get more and more disturbing, to a point of no return. But, how much can they trust each other? Who really is the meanest? And most importantly, do mean people really get what's coming to them in the long run? Only Mean People Suck can answer.

Amazing short
3 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

I have no idea what these people are whining about. I am an NYU student and saw the film at the GEN ART FILM FESTIVAL this past weekend. It was amazing! I guess other film students can be the biggest critics, but I really thought the short was fantastic. The writing worked. The actors were brilliant. The direction was simple. Keeping in mind it was a student film, I couldn't believe how far this guy took it. It just pains me to read about film students not supporting one another. I would go see anybody's student film and look for the good over the bad, just to support them as artists. But aside from that, if I could make a film like that, I would be more than pleased. And it seems it's done very well for the director, so he'll be laughing all the way to the bank.
