Do I Smell Oscar? No, but it's still awesome!!
4 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is arguably the best short film in the known universe. No, actually, this is INARGUABLY the best short film in the known universe. That's right, I said it, it cannot be argued. If you tried to argue it you would probably explode because it is one of those things that is physically impossible. So if I were you I wouldn't try it. Matthew Gray Gubler is genius, simply genius, and no, I am not getting him confused with his character on Criminal Minds. This man has talent, commitment, vision, and jawbone that will make you swoon. The Cactus That Looked Just Like a Man will make you laugh, cry, and maybe even vomit a little. Don't just take my word for it.
