Detention at this school is a hilarious adventure.

A wonderful entertaining short film. All the characters are hilarious. You will love this film as it takes a regular school detention and introduces a variety of characters who crack you up. There are parts of this film that have you gagging in your seat. This short film is a must see from any aspiring actor or aspiring film director. The illustration of building characters and actors taking on their full roles as those characters are extremely evident in this film. Some of the disgusting scenes are truly realestic and make you want to gag or turn away. The story line, although probably done before in other films, was done so well that you want to see more as the combination of interesting children and adult characters was interesting. The use of the talking heads was genius on the part of the director as it helped set the character's true personalities. This is definitely a must see.
