One of the more forgettable Disney World attractions - now gone
4 February 2006 | by don-lockwoodSee all my reviews

"The Making of Me" is a "Back to the Future"-style short film starring Martin Short that played in the Wonders of Life pavilion at Walt Disney World's Epcot in Orlando until the pavilion was recently taken down in a process of renovation. Short is both funny and appealingly believable as the protagonist/narrator, but unfortunately the small production was one of the more dated presentations at Disney up until its removal. For example, I don't think it would be spoiling anything to write that Short utters a line something to the effect that "every one of us is the result of...," to put it bluntly, sex (though the show more tastefully, admirably does so for family audiences). Of course, this is sadly dated because it does not account for artificial insemination and disregards adoption. Overall, the show is admirable but ultimately awkward for a Disney World attraction.
