Very, very funny
6 March 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The introduction to this short film is reason enough to watch this short film. In a very clever little ditty, the setup for this story is told using a song as well as cutout pictures of the hero, John Wang. If they'd just have done the song and nothing else, it would have been worth seeing the film! Fortunately, what followed was awfully funny, as poor starving actor, John, is stranded in Nebraska with no money and is forced to give acting lessons to the yokels.

Well made, very funny and quite clever, this film is worth a peek. My only reservation is that for younger kids this probably isn't great due to the language. Still, this is a minor problem--all others will love its gentle sense of humor.
