A very funny short about revenge, and the dangers of childhood.
25 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of film that can instantly brighten up an otherwise terrible day. The opening scene perfectly captures the feeling of being an outsider shunned by the "normal" world, as well as depicting the cruelty of those that "fit in" towards those that are different, and manages to do this while keeping you thoroughly entertained. It's filled with memorable characters such as the overly excited and slightly frightening art teacher, that is sure to remind you of a teacher out of your own past. The story gets funnier as it goes along, reaching its comic peak with the revenge of our wronged heroine. It's downright hilarious! If you get a chance to see this film, you have to take it! Highly recommended.
