Perhaps a good idea but the execution was at best indifferent
24 August 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Richard Belzer stars in this short film. A friend calls and tells him to turn on "the bar channel" immediately. So Belzar picks up an amazingly complicated remote control that I assume is supposed to be futuristic and flips around until he finds this channel. There he sees the beautiful lady who his friend is talking about as well as another he's interested in talking with over closed-circuit. It's like you are virtually going to a bar to pick up a girl. On his end, you see the girl on a TV screen and on her end she sees him on a TV screen. Oddly, another Belzer TV screen appears and on this one he plays a rich guy who's trying to impress her. Both Belzers get in a fight and a bouncer throws them both out of the bar.

All of this is bizarre and could have worked, but the overall effort just looked cheap and sloppy. What could have been interesting and provocative just looked like it was thrown together with minimal production values. Sorry, this one just doesn't work.
