good old mindless fun
8 March 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is not a film for people who like their entertainment sophisticated. Nope,...this film is meant for those who take pride in enjoying a really silly and stupid movie now and again. And, boy do I mean silly!! This short features human thumbs with computer technology in order to make the thumbs "come alive" in a wonderful parody of the recent Batman movies. And, overall, the parody is pretty broad and silly. I especially liked his side-kick. Instead of a helpful "ward", it's just some nut who dresses like a bird and can't seem to do anything right,...and WON'T go home like Bat Thumb keeps telling him to do! It's a good time passer, though not as funny as some of the production company's other thumb movies--most notably THUMB WARS, THUMBTANIC and THE GODTHUMB. Since they are all pretty short, I say see them all!
