Storyline

Esther is beautiful beneath the surface, in an office where the surface is all that matters. Plus she has brains and about 100 extra pounds. Her nasty, brutish, and tall colleagues (Donna, Caroline, and Erica) make fun of her even as they depend on her knowledge. One day, she excitedly offers to show them a portrait she's had taken by Bud, of "Bud's Glamour Shots," who had spammed the office with an e-mail promising a picture that will reveal her true inner self. Cut to Esther, driving home in tears. That night she sleeps with the portrait near the bed and awakes to discover something extraordinary. When the three harpies see the result, will they book a session with Bud? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

cute!
31 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is a really cute short little film. It's very light and very funny. Everyone plays their character really well and that's good because u start loving Amanda Detmers character. and you automatically hate the others in such a short period of time! It reminds me of high school. but in an office. It's definitely a good fairy tail story to real life story. Very cute and it takes like what? 5 minutes of your time! check it out. even if it was a bad movie (and i'm not saying it is) it's like 5 minutes. This film can be found at amazon.com. It took me awhile to find it. But it's worth it. Also, if you go back to a page called "minnie driver's holiday page", you'll see like a clip of her talking about the film, her cd, and her charity organization thingy.
