Wonderful short film!
5 July 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

While the idea behind this story isn't a new one, these film students have given it a fun twist. Hey, who hasn't daydreamed about a teacher at least once in class? I believe they have presented a film that will bring a smile to your face and probable memories of your own teacher crush in school. Under Corey Smith's direction, Hugh Jackman and the actors were comfortable with each other and thus able to present such an entertaining short piece. Corey's ability to work with a well-known star, as well as his fellow students, is obvious and tells me there are great films in his future. I felt the song played during class time was perfect for the theme, and liked the special effects. Also, being able to film in the actual school, instead of a storeroom, made the look of the film more professional.
