Funniest Short film ever!
11 April 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Christ I thought the couple were hilarious in trying to get rid of their weird Japanese house mate and the way she frightened them was really smart haha!

Genevieve Mariko Wilson as Meredith really shined her abilities as a true Japanese princess warrior. I mean I say she was glad she got Kelly in the end somehow. Meredith mightn't have shown it with her usual ordinary girl habits but she hit the jackpot anyhow!

I wonder what happened to Sam? Did himself and Kelly break up? Or did he realise she was in love with Meredith all along? I'm full of questions on that one!

If you feel like you want to have a laugh then this movie is for you!
