Some cool performances and dialog aren't enough to save this one...
17 May 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short film is set at a diner. Two guys sit and have a long conversation about the beings on this planet and you quickly realize that they are aliens in disguise.

I really wanted to like this short film. It had a lot going for it--some excellent dead-pan acting from the two leads, a "so ugly he's cool" leading actor and some very witty dialog. Unfortunately, despite all these great ingredients, the entire film just never came together for me--probably because the basic "made of meat" concept never caught my attention or made me laugh. Additionally, it seemed like they were trying to make a comedy but it had no punchline. As a result, the film, though attention-getting, never really delivered. A nice try, though and I'd like to see more from those who made this film.
