Wow
14 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow is all I can say. Obviously, seeing this short film posted on "Funny Or Die" makes you anticipate a lot of the humorous scenes you'd expect based on the title. But the actual plot begins to develop and it gets way more intense than you'd have expected. In short: watch it.

Impressive acting by T.J. Miller, but I think this film is a great example of his abilities as a writer. After seeing him in She's Out of My League, I thought he would be a goofy comedic actor in Judd Apatow-esque films the rest of his career, but this has changed my mind.

Great acting all around. Great use of humor to keep the film from getting too dark. Hey, its a short film, and its online so find a half hour of your time to watch it.
