Storyline

Thank you Geary, an aspiring hood/late shift donut fryer, is guilt-trapped by his crotchety one-armed Uncle Earl into faking his own death. His reluctant assent sets into motion a half-assed scheme to fleece the Gerber Baby life insurance company and provide Earl the funds to escort his supafly girlfriend Sheena to Kalapana-Puna to see the bottlenose dolphins. When the corpse they use to fake Geary's death turns out to be a late, but beloved, lieutenant of the local Jewish crime lord, all doody breaks loose! Written by Jared Tweedie

Earl's Your Uncle Wins My Vote And Festival
1 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA.) – See all my reviews

I was able to watch this film while attending The Century City Film Festival last week. Then on Saturday night at the closing night ceremony, it walked away with the award for best short film.

This film has it all, murder, comedy, love, hi-jinks, mafia, hook arms, tandem bicycles, oh by the way, it's a dark comedy set inside the classic world of film noir.

Unique, dark, witty, amazing dialogue, characters to die for, chemistry most directors only wish they could achieve. I could go on and on but I won't.

If it was in the theaters I would say run out and see it, but it is a short and the only place you will probably be able to see this is at another film festival.

Keep an eye out for it, and definitely keep an out for the young director of this film.
