Movie Review - Shorts

by Alex Popp

Not so TALL tales from the director of "Spy Kids."

In "Shorts," a young boy's discovery of a colorful, wish-granting rock causes chaos in the suburban town of Black Falls when jealous kids and scheming adults alike set out to get their hands on it.

Take my word for it. Choose a different movie! Despite its name, this ubnoxious film feels like longer than its "short" hour and a half running time. It limps through the movie in a random order and none of the characters even make sense in what their doing. The acting is nothing like what someone would literally be doing and the whole plot is pointless and unoriginal with rubbish effects. I want to know what the moviemakers were thinking.

Rated PG for mild action.

One star (out of four) for the senselessly stupid "Shorts," literally the worst movie I've ever seen.

Review by Alex Popp for The Animation Empire blog.


Hahaha. Yeah, it's pretty bad, but it was still fun, slightly clever in the way they presented it out of order, and my kids couldn't stop talking about the booger monster. So I'd give it 3 stars out of 5.
