Offbeat Office "Romance"
20 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this short which stars Linda Cardellini and Jason Segel as an offbeat couple. Segel plays an unattractive (dare I say hideous?) janitor with poor hygiene while Cardelli gets to play the highly attractive Barbie doll character for once and is barely recognizable at times. This is a 18 minute short which features Linda's character, Lisa, writing a story about these two lovers. It's a fun, dark comedy. It's also nice to see Cardellini and Segel together again, I always get really excited when see Freaks and Geeks cast members working together again.
