What we call British humor...
8 July 2004 | by JonWatchesSee all my reviews

In a style not unlike that of John Cleese (Fawlty Towers, Life of Brian) and his ilk, this short film is made with the up-most quality in acting, directing, and clever humor.

If you're looking for surprises, don't. What makes you laugh hardest is that you KNOW what's going to happen next--and how absurd the whole thing is to begin with.

Don't watch it with one of those types who keeps saying "Why don't they just..." Oh no, this is for those who are practiced in the fine art of suspended disbelief.

Kim Thomson (also credited in Princess Diaries 2) plays a perfect straight role as the lead--then again, the entire cast plays this one pretty straight, and very well. Having managed a retail store myself, I especially appreciate the frustrated boss, even if he's totally out-of-line. I'm sure you'll find a favourite among the three cast members, as well, and enjoy every bit of this production.
