An entertaining 4 minutes
21 September 2013 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Michael Cera and Aubrey plaza are both prime examples of young talent. They're beautiful actors with the unique talent of captivating audiences with their awkward personalities. "Failure" is no exception. In a mere 4 minutes the Man and Woman played by Michael Cera and Aubrey Plaza manage to display a wild level of confusion and awkwardness that can't really be described. I felt like I was being generous giving this short film a 7/10. In reality, the story is bleak and there's not much to hold onto. I felt like I was watching a rough draft of a pitch for a scene out of a cheesy love flick. Don't get me wrong, Cera is up there in my top favorite actors and Plaza is working her way up there as well as I'm falling in love with her talent and abilities as a young actress. Perhaps I'm missing a deeper meaning to this short, or maybe it's as simple as it appears and I'm over-analyzing it. Whatever the case may be, I highly recommend this short film to anyone partial to Michael Cera or Aubrey Plaza's work. And for those unfamiliar with them, well, this is a great example of how genuine their awkwardness appears both on screen and off.
