Saw It At Sundance
9 March 2004 | by SpyderFingerzSee all my reviews

I was able to get into a screening of this short, it ran before another film. All in all, it was really funny. The characters were portrayed well, and seeing fairy-tale heroines put into therapy is much funnier than anything the Brothers Grimm could have written. Having some of the most famous storybook ladies talking about narcolepsy, paranoia, obsessive compulsive disorder and the like, it's pretty funny. It does have some adult language (one f-bomb, and Sleeping Beauty talking about her Prince wanting a "snow-job") but for being shot in two days and being about 8 minutes long, it's a great little film. I'm not sure where it is next, but I believe the publicist told me that it's making it's way around the country. Try to catch it if you can.
