On a gritty city sidewalk, a short man flanked by two large men runs a three-card monte game. He cheats to defeat a woman who runs off in despair. Enter, across the street, a silent man, well dressed in suit, tie, and fedora. He sees the three across the street and recalls a day during his childhood when the same three humiliated him, throwing dodge balls at him and laughing as he lay supine. The man in the fedora kicks over a store display of dodge balls, sending them rolling in all directions. He's set to take his revenge, years later. Soon, it's mano a mano. On this street of pain, will silent, determined justice triumph over the sneering cheater? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Did You Know?

Crazy Credits

T-$ and J-Dog did not base these characters or situations on any real people or situations, living, dead or otherwise. If you know some real people who behave like this, that's messed up. They need help. What the hell kind of friend are you, letting them do crap like this and not saying anything? Adults shouldn't be playing dodgeball. We would, however, like to learn how to run up the side of a bus. Can your friends teach us how to do that? That would be a stone groove. Dig it. Woof woof. Ka-ching. See more »

I don't get it!
15 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Steve Carrell plays an adult in this short film about dodge ball and memory. The short film is told without any words except the drama of dodge balls. Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet plays another guy. The short film is a challenging format. Steve Carrell does a good job in playing the lead role. The film is strange and I didn't get it mostly. I found it short and unresolved at the end. I kept asking myself what happened. What was it all about? Steve Carrell expands his acting range here and is a credible dramatic actor. Eric Stonestreet shows his talents before his success on Modern Family. The film is done without scripted speech and done with action. It's a challenging departure from normal short films.
