It kind of looks like a Thurber drawing--sort of...
12 July 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an exceptionally simple tale told using animation that is somewhat reminiscent of the drawings of James Thurber--though there is some color in addition to the unusual black and white drawings. A man is invited to go out and although all he needs to do is change and leave, things keep happening to make him stay. It seems that one problem after another are conspiring to keep him home. And, when he tries to fix things, the problems only get worse.

Will this change your life or be considered a brilliant film? No. On the other hand, for a young film maker, this is good work and shows lots of promise. I'd like to see what they are doing in the near future.
