December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor: it's not the Japanese air force killing people on the beach but the shards of a giant meteor, headed for Earth. FDR gets the bad news from an aide, calls an emergency meeting, and sends for Matt and his crew of drillers. But how will they get to the hurtling rock? And, if the meteor does break into smaller pieces, where will they land, and will that create any political problems for the President? A subplot has Gwen torn between her two loves, Matt and Ben. Is a sequel in the works? Written by
I saw this movie a few years back at the Comedy Arts festival in Aspen when it got picked up by Cinemax. Great short, I think the people who find it insulting don't know the Michael Bay/Jerry Bruckheimer style film-making it mocks. Saying that PH2 is disrespectful to the veterans is like saying The Dancing Cow is disrespectful to Harvey Weinstein. Personally, I think the glossy portrayal of Pearl Harbor that Michael Bay made is more insulting than PH2, but thats just my opinion. As for Rob Moniot, this guy has a great eye and is a hilarious writer, and if you haven't seen his other movie, The Dancing Cow, check it out. Its just as good, if not better than PH2, knuck, knuck, knuck... -A fan
