Giggleworthy!
27 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Anyone with a sense of humor who has spent any amount of time growing up in the South would appreciate this short film.

The deadly boredom that reaches philosophical proportions and her desperation, as in despair, when she realizes on some level that this is all her life will ever be.

I don't know why this movie is so southern but it is.

The reason this short student film is on this database is that it is SO DAMN FUNNY! I saw this short over 10 years ago and I still get a little giggle in my chest thinking about it.

And, from a historical perspective, it shows the beginning of MacLachlan's mastery of southern character studies.
