Darkly Witty
25 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Certainly Not a Fairytale, a short of the dark humour variety, starring then-couple Linda Cardellini and Jason Segel of "Freaks and Geeks" fame, was definitely a pleasant surprise. The narrative to the story, provided by Cardellini, was witty and interesting and the acting was solid for the plot involved.

Of course, I realize that, considering all aspects of the short, it is more or less hit-or-miss: viewers will either love it or hate it, with no real discernible gray-area in between. But if you are at all interested in seeing it for yourself, I do recommend it, as it can only be described as *different*. I really enjoyed the bizarre atmosphere that was created, and would without a doubt watch it again.
