Make sure to avoid looking backwards while driving.
29 August 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

This silly safety short film really doesn't help any with safety, except it teaches not to be incredibly stupid. The movie is about half narration and half is about a family on a farm talking to a cop. We start the film off seeing the cop at the funeral for Frank Jr., which could have been avoided. Frank and his girlfriend Betty could've avoided death by simply not being so stupid. They look backwards and wave at Frank's brother for about 30 seconds before they finally get hit by a train. Is this really a safety video, or is it simply a short produced by the railroads to say that it's never their fault? The whole thing is very corny, and unhelpful, and the only positive is some surprisingly fresh camera work for such a dumb project.

My rating: BOMB/****. 25 mins.
