Funny spoof of original film and a dig at studios chasing trends
2 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

When Rob Reiner and Billy Crystal are pitching a sequel to When Harry Met Sally, they suspect they won't totally get their own way but are happy when the studio exec gives them the green-light. However, he just has one little tweak to make in order to leverage maximum audience from current viewer trends....

I had heard of this short film quite some time ago but never got around to watching it and a recent viewing of another mock sequel from Funny or Die reminded me of this one. I shan't ruin the "tweak" for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, but suffice to say that it is more than just a little update to the original film, it is a bit more of a genre twisting. It came out of nowhere for me and I found it very funny indeed because it was so out of leftfield! The jokes come from this twist but also from referencing the original film in quite a fresh way. Kudos for Crystal for doing it, but also for Helen Mirren, who is perhaps not as funny as she could be but her very presence was a joke in itself. Reiner, Tyson, Riggle and Rudolph all show up in small roles and are funny.

Overall this is a very short and funny film that plays well on the original and is imaginative with it – be warned though, it is surprisingly bloody and has foul language.
