Quotes

Stressy: I am so scared right now! This is all my fault. I'm so alone. I just want to apologize to Jish's mom. Jish is dismembered and everything. And to Vic's mom. Vic is really freaked out right now. I love you Mom and Dad... and Ricky Martin. I'm scared to close my eyes! I'm scared to open them! I'm scared to squint. I'm scared to cross them. Maybe I could cross them.

I didn't find it all that funny, but others might
18 August 2007 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

It's really no secret that I honestly don't particularly care for Steve Oedekerk. I don't like what he did to the few Jim Carrey films he was involved in(one of them even being a sequel, and Carrey seldom does those at all... and that one followed a genuinely funny movie, to boot), and I hardly ever find his material funny. I will admit up front that I am really not in the intended audience for this short. That may be part of why I didn't enjoy it as much as others have(and I am in no way trying to keep those who do, will or may enjoy this from watching it). The film seems to be typical to what Oedekerk makes... if you like his other work, you may very well enjoy it. There are a few bodily function jokes, and more often than not, his writing makes fun of itself. At least one joke fits both of the aforementioned criteria. Some of the material is clever. The scenes spoof the original movie(which I could not stand) well. The whole thing is, as the other thumb films(apparently, this is the only one I've watched), acted out by thumbs(yup) with moving eyes and a mouth each. That is actually quite nicely done, and works throughout the almost half-hour run-time. The pacing isn't bad. I didn't hate this, but I'm not sure I'd ever watch it again. I recommend it to fans of Steve Oedekerk, his body of work and people who enjoy his style of humor. 6/10
