I've been on a bit of a Robert Z'Dar kick ever since he sadly passed away (RIP). When I saw this short was available to view on IMDb for free, I knew I couldn't miss it.
I'm not familiar with the creators previous works - although I have heard of the "Cesar and Otto" characters/series(?) - but I still found the short to be goofy, enjoyable fun.
Some jokes landed, others didn't -- but the tone was consistently light and fun. The sound was kind of crummy, transitions were awkward, and lighting clearly wasn't a priority... But all of this is forgivable in the low-budget world, ESPECIALLY we get to see two legendary b-movies actors sharing the screen together and having fun. Z'Dar and Estevez have done SO MANY movies together, but in this one it felt like they were playing themselves (which they were, so I guess that makes sense) and just having a good time riffing off of each other and enjoying the crazy life of a low-budget actor.
To the average viewer, I can't really recommend this -- as many of the jokes are b-movie "inside" references. But if you're a fan of the genre, definitely check it out. It's worth the 15 minutes.
