As a short film should be.
16 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the Worldwide Short Film Festival: Canada 3 Woulda Coulda Shoulda. This was the last film they showed. The joke/premise was old, but the delivery was fresh and the result was hilarious.

Ephram sits daydreaming in his class as the teacher talks about the 9 planets. He hears the tail end of the assignment he must complete for tomorrow, which is a report on 'Uranus' (including size, depth, distance from the Earth and a picture) He goes home and proceeds with this assignment. He drops trous in the bathroom with a mirror and proceeds to do reading on 'his anus'. He shows up to class the next day all prepared...and well, you can imagine what happens when he shows the picture to the class.

The film was SHORT, quick, to the point and very nicely directed.

I would love to get a copy of this somehow.
