Storyline

After a long long day of shopping, three grumpy, lazy old ladies, Effie, Paula and Eleanor, take a ride in their old beetle. Unfortunately they run out of fuel and head to a gas station. But who's gonna get out of the car to actually refuel the beetle? Luckily the gas station attendant saves the day. A little suspicious one of the grannies hands over some money. Totally unexpected the attendant offers something else. Fear arises when suddenly a group of, not too shabby looking, men walk towards the car. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

Silly - totally disposable short that may amuse you
26 October 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Three ladies struggle to their car with their shopping - moaning and complaining as they go. When they stop for fuel, the Spanish attendant offers them a little something extra that helps revive their flagging spirits.

Shorts can sometimes be artistic and maybe try too hard to be profound and meaningful. Whereas others are jut plain silly - like someone had a spare £1000 sitting around and decided to make a short film. Fuel feels like the latter. The pot makes damn-all sense and it's not meant to. It is amusing to see these women rediscovering their spark when the car wash is offered but it's not THAT funny and it's not that clever.

To be honest I really only got something out of it when I saw the final shot and when you see it you'll understand why. The cast of ladies do well but the most notable thing about them is the presence of ex-Russ Abbot partner Bella Emberg.

Overall this is silly and just about sustains the very short running time. It won't stick in your mind for any length of time but it may make you smile while it's on.
