. . . WAITING FOR BOZO. Normally, I find movies about clowns interesting, at least. FREAKS was especially intriguing. But the clowns in this short are a quarrelsome pair, and for some reason writer\director David Garrett elects to show only their feet and shins for the first half of the picture. Even if the clown faces are not available to give you a chuckle, the situation might be slightly salvaged if the stuff the clowns were saying were funny. Unfortunately, most of the dialog consists of mundane observations or recriminations by the male clown against the female one (these clowns happen to be married to other people, apparently, since they don't seem to know each other very well, or each other's kids). The song at the end and the dried lake bed desert view are nice; the rest of this piece is forgettable.
