I saw this listed for download and I immediately thought, "God, that sounds dreadful." The title makes it sound like the film sets out to shock and be completely offensive only for the hell of it. Then, out of curiosity, I looked it up here on IMDb. I was surprised that it had so many comments in the message boards, so I downloaded it and gave it a chance. May I say this is one of the most entertaining short films I have ever seen. Granted the character names, and a few other jokes, *are* pretty simple minded on the surface, but I think they work when everything is fit together. The narration and music (I LOVED the music!) set a great tone. There are so many small touches -- the Mr. Spell voice, some hilarious imagery, the misspelling of "Beijing" -- that make the whole thing work wonderfully. It also did a great job of giving a 70's kind of feel. I don't think this movie's purpose is to offend. I found it endearing even. I'm glad I gave it a chance.
