Aside from an ending that could possibly use a re-write, this is a smart film
24 September 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short film is one of almost 100 shorts that are now posted on IMDb for viewing in the United States. Due to licensing issues, I have no idea if this beta program will extend to other parts of the world.

Although you have no idea why, as the main character in this short goes about his day, everyone he encounters is incredibly open and speaks exactly what's on their mind--as does Our Hero. It's odd to see such openness and my favorite is when he's talking with a co-worker and both reveal that they hate each other and don't know why. And, to make it funnier, they both are very happy and unoffended by this revelation. In fact, no one is the least bit defensive or angry during this very strange day until the very end. While I liked the idea of how the film was ended, I do think the incredibly over-used use of the f-word was uncalled for and tended to cheapen the film's clever message. it just wasn't funny. Yet despite this, it was a good film.
