While, seemingly, all the elements which should make this into a short funny engaging flick are there, it just lacks backbone to substantiate the emotional transition of the main character, far-fetching the funny elements and banal, overused 'failed-marriage-injury' motif leaving audience (or at least me) uninvolved.
