Might be the funniest short I've ever seen
23 July 2013 | by petepSee all my reviews

We come to The Stunt People for their incredible action skills (and they are certainly on display here), but Rope-A-Dope is extremely funny. I was thrilled to see this at Ric Meyers' annual kung fu panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year, and Eric Jacobus was in attendance to present as well. His performance is flawless and I can't wait to share it with everyone else in anticipation of the huge laughs it will no doubt earn.

I can't help but mention Groundhog Day when describing this short. Instead of using an endlessly repeating day to win Andie MacDowell's heart, The Dope is suffering from a series of annoyances and frustrations ending with an attack from a local gang. He becomes determined to figure out how best to deal with this gang.
