17 November 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is immensely entertaining and clever short film that you must see! A husband and wife are a bit bored in their relationship. When a friend recommends they try dressing up and role playing to improve their sex lives, the wife is interested but the husband is very dubious. After all, how will their dressing up like superheroes help? Plus, he just feels stupid dressed as Batman and her as Wonder Woman! In the midst of getting ready for a night of super-action, unexpectedly the realtor opens the door and in come some prospective buyers. Not wanting these people to think they are kinky freaks, the couple end up climbing down the fire escape--and into the middle of a real-life robbery!! What are this super-couple to do?! See this film to find out.

The bottom line is that this is a very cute film with clever writing and a great ending. The only reservation is that some of the language is very adult--though given the circumstances rather justifiable. So, it's an excellent film but not for little kids.
