Why is there Guy
26 August 2005 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

The comic relief provided by "Guy" played by Jeff Hime may be overlooked by some who are trying to pay attention to the sometimes hectic dialog. That would be the only possible complaint here is that so much good stuff squeezed in such a short time could leave the viewer empathizing with the actors and feeling breathless.

That said the pacing of the film itself feels good and you are rewarded for watching a short film with a big film "story".

The subject matter is handled honestly and still "funny" enough to involve viewers with different views.

Watch it.
