Chuckling good
11 November 2010 | by film-222See all my reviews

Huh, I'm surprised this good little short hasn't won any awards! I saw this back in 2007 when it was making the festival rounds, and on coming across the DVD, I decided to see where the director has gone since then, was sure he must be doing some great things now. The acting and pacing in this short are just right for the steady sense of drollness, and, gosh, it's so true! Savored every minute. There's a daytime show created for the wife, Liz, to watch, that is hilarious, because, again, it's so true to life! Dang, can't give anything away here. Eileen Barnett as the wife is perfect in her placid blankness of mind, and Peter Van Norden as the husband in his routine is also a chuckling pleasure to watch. Nice twist with the ending. Yep, this is why I don't own a TV (except to watch fun films like this).
