Storyline

Francis has just changed his new fish's water, and the fish is freaking out. Francis calls a pal who tells him the fish needs salt water, not fresh water, and hasn't long to live; so Francis sets out, fish in fresh water in a plastic bag, to save it. He must first find his car, deal with an unsympathetic vet, tape a leaky bag, get to a pet store where he confronts the manager and the manager's bouncer, stare into the eyes of a helpful clerk who offers ocean salt, and then hightail it for the beach. Luckily, Francis lives in L.A. Will the fish drown before Francis gets it to the sea? Wave good-by. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

After watching Jason Reitman's previous short "In God we Trust" and loving it, I had high hopes when I sat down to watch "Gulp". I wasn't disappointed by this fun tale of a guy who has only a handful of minutes to save his salt water goldfish from dying. It moves at a good clip, is humorous enough, and suitably cute. I have high hopes with Jason's first feature length movie in post (an adaption of another kid of a famous father, William F. Buckley's son, Christopher's satirical book "Thank You For Smoking") and provided that Jason keeps the tone of it right then It'll be yet another notch in his belt. The kid has talent to spare.

My short Grade: B
