Corny Fun!
29 January 2006 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

Gopher Broke was playing as part of the Sundance Film Festival this year. It is a great 3D animated short about a hungry gopher who tries to 'score' produce from passing-by farm trucks. Of course, his mishaps are what make the show funny. Gopher Broke was nominated for the 2005 animated short film Academy Award.

The animation is well-done and the gags come rapidly throughout the films 4 min. run time. My favorite joke involves a passing by cow. It's always fun to watch a good animated short. And while this may not be a classic like 'What's Opera Doc?', 'Gopher Broke' is a very entertaining toon. Hopefully, we'll see this scheming gopher again soon. Overall, a highly recommended animated short I voted an 8 for.
