Pretty funny
27 January 2008 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I saw this on Swedish TV. It was pretty funny, and a good parody of a typical disaster movie. The premise that it was all shots assembled from casting sessions was also pretty cool, and they utilized it well for comedic effect.

I wanted to make this short but sweet, but apparently it has to be 10 lines. There isn't that much to say about a 13 minute movie. As I said it was a parody so the whole point is, does the humor work? And it certainly does. I didn't expect a short made by unknowns to be funny, but it really was.

Catch it if you have the opportunity.
