Storyline

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>

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 »

Funny and unique
28 January 2006 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

A man is walking home down a quiet sidewalk in NYC. Suddenly he sees three men on the opposite side of the street - and remembers how, as a child, they had attacked him with dodgeballs.

A stash of dodgeballs is conveniently sitting on the side of the street. He knocks over a carton of them and a battle ensues, in which he artfully dodges throws from two huge bullies and a flexible skinny guy.

This short film is very unique, and quite funny. Steve Carell made it before he shot to popularity last year with "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," while he was still on the "Daily Show." It takes the mickey out of films like "The Matrix" and I believe the final shot may have even been a reference to one of my favorite films, Sergio Leone's "Once Upon a Time in America." If you're looking for an unpredictable short film with a good bit of clever humor, check this out.

And if you're wondering where you can find it, do a search Yahoo! Video.
