Wish this could have been funnier
23 November 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"The Third Rule" is an American 15-minute short film from 5 years ago and the cast actually has quite a few famous actors. I will not write the names, you can check that yourself. Writer and director is Aundre Johnson and I am not familiar with him I must admit. All in all, this was not too memorable of a movie. This is not really the actors' fault though. this felt just like another fairly unfunny slacker comedy and the jokes weren't that great at all. I am actually glad this was such a short movie as it was really enough for me and I did not feel the need to see any more of it. And I also cannot say this got me particularly inspired to check out some of Johnson's other works. Quite a shame, the cast was wasted here. Not recommended.
