"Morgan and Destiny's Eleventeenth Date: The Zeppelin Zoo" is a 7-minute short from 2010 that came out the same year as the one about Morgan and Destiny's first date. Director is once again lead actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the script is by Sarah Daly again too and the co-lead is again Alexandra Nicole Hulme Alexandra Nicole Hulme. It may be the inclusion of actor Channing Tatum that may be the main reason why this one is slightly more known than the first even. But Tatum's introduction and the moment Destiny finds out her pet's missing where the only somewhat decent moments I would say. It's the story for 2.5 minutes packed into 7 minutes. JGL does not impress me as either lead actor or narrator again. The film has something pompous and pretentious to it and it never, not for one second, succeeds on the romance level despite trying really hard. I would say it is minimally better than the first film that was luckily for us over 1.5 minutes shorter. But both are extremely mediocre at best and I cannot give either a thumbs-down. It's probably a good watch for these who think quirkiness is a talent and fittingly this one came out just a year after "(500) Days of Summer" and fittingly lead actress Hulme also plays a part in there. Back to this one here, it's a prime example of style over substance and the cringeworthy closing credits, maybe the worst aspect of the entire thing, are just one piece of evidence. If you like good movies (and don't just think you like good movies), then you will dislike this one here (and its prequel). Or better skip it right away. I give it a thumbs-down. Please don't tell us about the other 9 or more dates.
