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

A short film that rocks
15 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

Earl's Your Uncle completely took me by surprise. I was recently able to view it through a screener copy that was sent to a film festival. Can't say which one, but it doesn't matter.

The I did some research online and got to see it online. This movie had me laughing from beginning to end. The woman that plays Sheena is just down right funny. Whene she came into the movie, I could not wait to see her again.

If there was a downfall to the film, it was that she was not in it enough, but hey, then maybe i would have gotten tired of seeing her. She did steal the show.

It was shot in black and white and it fit the film so well, the mood, the setting, the look, everything just worked for this movie.

I was a little confused with the beginning and the end, but after thinking about it, it all made sense. ' I don't know if the filmmakers were doing this on purpose, if not it still worked for me.

This is a short film that I would love to see made into a feature. These characters could carry an entire film. But if it ever made it that far, hopefully they would not replace the actors with bigger names. The guys did a great job.

I don't even know if this counts as a review, maybe i am just rambling on, but I enjoyed the movie.
