Ham Hamilton, the Pro, Wiped Out by Super-Charismatic Newcomer!
13 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

When you see the words, "An Educational Comedy", there are generally two things you can be pretty sure of right off: Firstly, the movie short you're about to see is not in the least bit "educational". Secondly, it is not a "comedy". An unfunny waste of time, certainly, and a disappointment all around no matter what its cast, credits and other credentials. But comic? No way!

"Don't Be Nervous" is an excellent example of Educational at its worst. Despite his multiplicity of credits as director and writer, Watson's direction is so flat-footed he even makes the clever camera-work that unites both Hamiltons on screen seem ho-hum, tame and uninteresting.

As for the script, despite the humdrum moments of confusion, the only watchable thing about it is the fact that the done-to-death role of the gangster's sexy girl friend is played by Rita La Roy. Now Miss La Roy is quite something. She makes this short worth seeing all by herself. As for Ham Hamilton, one word describes him: Dull!
