Short and funny, and that's just the main character
2 January 2010 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I came across this title when I was following a few items on Alexis Bledel. It only runs 10 minutes so I looked for it on Youtube and found it a good way to waste 10 minutes on a snowy afternoon. The incompetence of the therapist is made funnier by the fact that anyone watching can see what Gene's problem is, and it's not his height. The therapist is nicely played by Seth MacFarlane, and both Alexis and Riki Lindholme bring just the right tone to their parts.

It's amazing what a decent director can do with 10 minutes of filming time. This is a good piece of work, even though it is only a little longer than an average commercial break. It seems longer than the ten minutes it runs for, and that's a good thing. Go watch it!
