Funny---but watch this one when the kids aren't around!, 22 February 2008
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

An older lady who seems to be blind invites a young man into her home to look at a couch to see if he wanted to buy it. However, it soon becomes obvious that he isn't interested in the couch but is a dirt bag interested in stealing from this dear old lady. In fact, when she tells him about a very expensive suit her son left there, he decides to steal it. Heck, since she's blind, he also decides to just take off his clothes there and make the switch! I can't say any more--it will spoil the twist ending.

This is a very strange film that is best watched when the kids aren't around due to the nudity and crude language in the film. While often this turns me off films, it was quite appropriate and resulted in a very funny short film.
