Not bad, enjoyable if you're a fan of QT.
2 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is an interesting short directed and written by Quentin Tarantino. As he's stated in interviews this movie was his film school. Some of the dialog, scenes and names he would reuse in True Romance. The soundtrack is great by the way and the look is not unlike other low budget films of the 80s, think Shes Gotta Have it. The acting is weak but it's to be expected from a film like this. I gave this film a ten because I think the rating is too low, it deserves a 6. My favorite line was "Your ass is grass and I'm the Lawnmower!". Anyways it's a fun little movie and if you're a Tarantino fan, you should get some enjoyment out of it.
