Hot chick, great acting, perfect punchline, what else do you need?
30 April 2008 | by agentloki-1See all my reviews

Look, I've watched a ton of these short films and let's face it, most of them are amateurish, filled with college friends as "actors," and have all the personality of a dead fish. This one is different.

From the get go, this short film actually feels like a real "film." This is an overall quality that is definitely something in short supply on most of these around the internet. It has quality actors (which yes, provide quality acting), strong direction (strong in my opinion basically means the director KNOWS what the hell he wants and gets it), and great writing (the punchline at the end is perfect.)

All in all, I give this a major thumbs up. It's got a hot chick in her underwear, writing that actually makes you laugh, and a punchline at the end that's worth the price of admission. Give it a look people. It's worth your time.
