If you only read the dialog to this film, you wouldn't think anything is that unusual. After all, this sounds like a very typical conversation you might overhear between two kindergärtners. However, what makes this so unusual is that the actors are adults! So, as they talk about eating paste and cooties, you can't help but think "what?!?". Now, while this idea is pretty funny, it's made a lot better because of the way they talk--like it's a matter of life or death. In fact, much of the way they talk is highly reminiscent of a prison film--like two inmates just looking for a chance to escape.
Overall, considering how simple the concept is, the film makers are able to make quite a bit out of it. Additionally, the short format really worked well and I have no suggestions on how to improve it. Good job.
