7 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this incredibly hilarious short film today at the LA comedy shorts festival and it was the best of the day! The concept was perfect, the spoofy-ness of it was extremely funny and so were all the other jokes.

After watching it, my friend and I got to talk with the director and actors and we had a blast because they were very nice and their movie kicked ass.

I would love for this to be a full length picture someday, I simply couldn't get enough of it. I even saw that the director of it was wearing a T-shirt for this film and I wanted it! Great job to all of the folks involved with this film, keep it up and please make this full-length someday!
