Take a pew, youngster
6 May 2003 | by madsagittarianSee all my reviews

This enjoyable, subtle spoof of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS concerns an annoying yuppie couple (who call each other egregiously cutesy names like "snookums" every couple of minutes) who "go slumming" one weekend (they're on their way to a country antique sale, to be precise) and stop off at this one-horse town, where everybody (and I mean, EVERYBODY) acts like they're Ed Sullivan.

Probably for the sake of copyright, the name "Ed Sullivan" is never mentioned, but everyone's demeanour makes the point obvious. From the kid who auditions tiny talent to the parkside loonies who accost the yuppie wife, everyone in this place does a spot-on impersonation of Mr. Sunday Night, and geared to their own character's sensibilities (be they shopkeepers, mechanics or clergymen).

I will go on the record and say that a lot of shorts made in Canada are pure agony to watch. However, for this one, the filmmakers knew exactly just how far they could stretch this premise. For its brief running time, this is a funny little fable that offers up some nice surprises, especially the howler of an ending.
