Heck, it's not a great film but John C. Reilly makes it likable
27 November 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There is something disarming about John C. Reilly's screen persona that makes you want to like him. In silly films such as TALLADEGA NIGHTS and WALK HARD, even if I didn't love the film (such as with WALK HARD), I found myself liking the character played by Reilly--even with his many foibles.

Here, Reilly stars in a black and white short where he simply asks people "Are you the favorite person of anybody?". I assume the people were all actors, but the film has the look of reality about it. What was interesting is that the film got you to think about this for yourself--a potentially sad and lonely or affirming question indeed. While nothing dramatic or life-changing, this was a likable and interesting little film.
