Spelling with a flare
24 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I got a chance to see this gem at the '05 Sundance. It was my first festival, so I didn't really know what to expect from the shorts programs. The movies -- including this one -- exceeded all of my expectations.

I don't really want to give away anything, suffice to say, it the kind of short that makes you roll on the ground laughing, not the kind that makes you question humanity or your will to live...

The director is someone to look out for, he is a genuinely funny guy based on the post-movie Q&A. He seems to be shooting for the big movies, so you might actually get a chance to see some of his work in the future. An interesting piece of trivia: he managed to get Charlie Sheen (and Drew Mikuska) for the part thanks to their collaboration on scary movie 3 (where he was directing second unit).

In case you were wondering, I give this Spelling Bee an A+.
