Storyline

In this short, various acts perform musical numbers before an audience in a theater. One of these acts is a tap dancer whose shoes have extensions on them that allow him to balance on the ends as one might use stilts. In the finale, a dog in the audience performs tricks. The title refers to the curfew in the town. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Pet cruelty spoils decent dance numbers
20 February 2002 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This short film has a series of pretty good song and dance numbers, introduced by a clever hick comedian. The best dance number is done by a young man with boards attached to the front of his shoes. He's really good.

Unfortunately, the entire piece is completely ruined by a gag animal bit at the end. It's supposed to be a joke about a drunken dog, but instead a modern audience can clearly see some awful pet abuse. I'm by no means an animal activist and am not particularly sensitive to this topic either. So if I found watching a poor little dog get twisted around inside a tight suit painful, you'd better believe pet lovers would be up in arms about it.
