Very funny, well done.
27 February 2003 | by (Loveland, Colorado) – See all my reviews

I found this short film to be very funny. Well put together. Fifteen minutes is not long to tell a story, but they made all their points well. I suspect we will be seeing more movies by Ariel Vromen and company.

Gerard Butler demonstrates he has a sense of humor, and great comedic timing. I don't think many actors could have done justice to this story, as he did. The "behind the scenes", alone is worth the cost of the DVD.
