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.

Lots of language... interesting ending though.
12 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot for this short film was a very interesting idea that was well-filmed, for an independent work and a low budget. The pace of the film was kept a steady fast pace, but then its length required such. Apart from that, one seemed to get the feeling that the makers of the film attempted to shove as many f-words and sex scenes as they possibly could into about eight minutes of film, which lent a seriously negative side to what would otherwise have been a smart short. Interesting premises and plot, and well-carried-out in the time frame that they chose, but still a quite negative experience for the viewer. 3 out of 10 stars for what seemed like an overdose of language... and the sexual content, which wasn't a very positive addition either.
