One of the most annoying 89 minutes of my life.
17 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Shorts might be an O.K. family film, but if your over 10 you will think it really, really, sucks.

SHORTS: (2009)

Well what would you expect from the makers of Spy Kids and Sharkboy and Lavagirl? Exactly what you would expect, actually. Another annoying, high pitched, poorly written, poorly acted, sped-up load of cacá.

High pitched voices of nearly every character, a dumb plot, and terrible effects when used basically make up the synopsis of this movie.

Don't watch it if you are a mature movie goer and enjoy a good comedy once and a while. If you were expecting something better than Spy Kids, or any other movies with the same tone as that, this is not the film for you.
