A hilarious six minutes
3 October 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I came across this gem of a short on a random website. I was shocked by how much I loved it. I don't normally rate/review shorts but I had to write one for this. The script is deliciously witty and pokes gentle fun at college relationships and the consensual sex that often pairs with them. The lawyers were a genius medium for bargaining what was really on their "clients'" minds. It's hilarious to watch the two lawyers work with such strict professionalism about such a crude subject while the guy and girl wait aside, listening patiently. You can guess exactly what each "Article" is referring to.

The direction is smooth and structured - Jason Reitman has of course moved onto bigger and better things: he went on to direct Thank You for Smoking in 2005, another favourite of mine. The cast is not bad - the two lawyers were really the stars of the film: in particular Jeff Witzke who manages to deliver hilarity with such deadpan. The ending cuts off at a great point - leaves you on an optimistic high note, but is actually the perfect length since the quality would deteriorate if more time was forcibly added on.

All in all, a great way to spend 6 minutes and I hope you love it as much as I did.
