My Spleen Hurts (With Laughter)
28 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the cutest short films I have ever seen. Anna Faris lights up the film with her (somewhat typecast) ditsy blonde character, along side of her adorable Jonathon Lipnicki look-a-like on-screen son. Also, making me laugh was Larry Miller and his fake German accent as well as Ron Livingston who randomly pops up towards the end of the short, and pretty much the story itself.

It follows a young mother who dreams to become a stage actress. In order to get the dream role she feels she must live in the shows of her twin sister, and, ultimately, perform a spleenectomy.

Produced by Glamour Magazine and Suave, inspired by "Glamour reader" Stephanie Holcomb, and written/directed by Kirsten Smith (who wrote films like "10 Thing I Hate About You," "Legally Blonde," "Ella Enchanted," "She's The Man," "the House Bunny," and "The Ugly Truth"), it is safe to assume this was aimed towards women; however, it is not limited to them. Anyone can and should enjoy this cute little film.
