Darwin made funny!
10 October 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is admittedly not incredible. You will not be awed by it nor will you be stirred or moved. That said, it is screamingly funny!! I found it delightful and a pleasure to watch! Another excellent production of the National Film Board of Canada! Most recommended.
