Being lazy was never this much fun.
27 February 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very quirky short film about a total slacker that actually enjoyed being unemployed. Plus, the film is quite educational in showing you both how to cheat the system AND get the most of your measly unemployment checks.

Kenny loses his job and is frustrated trying to find a job requiring minimal effort. However, he meets a guy who suggests that he stop trying to find a job and just fake it. Then, on only $15 a day, he can be his own boss and live "the good life". So, with his new friend (who is soaking the disability claims), you see the two of them going about town taking advantage of as much free and discount things as is humanly possible. My favorite of these was when they ushered at the Broadway musical "Knight Rider: The Musical" in order to see this magnificent show for free! Very cleverly written, this is a strange and very original comedy that's worth a look.
