INTERNET RELEASE: 2000 (atomfilms.com)Atom Films busts out this collection of six short live action comedies with unhappy endings, unhappy middles, and unhappy beginnings. In PACT, two Australians attempt, and repeatedly fail to off themselves. Another Australian flick, BLIND DATE offers the tenuous humor value of a man woefully unprepared for his blind date because he spent the last half hour on the phone with his mother. With Samantha Mathis, George Clooney, and Jennifer Aniston, WAITING FOR WOODY is the heavyweight in this anthology, and at 30 minutes, also comprises the bulk of the material in the collection. A vanity flick for writer/director/actor Grant Heslov, the short revolves around the miseries of an out of work actor who has trouble keeping a "woody" in the sack. BIG CANYON is an exercise in irony--two young miscreants dream up life and death "worst-case scenarios" and then find themselves in one. The gems of the series lay in two of the shorter flicks, BILL VS. THE CITY (only 2:10 in duration) and STALKER GUILT SYNDROME, in which a conscientious young man on a subway struggles to discern whether an attractive young woman is into him, or if she thinks he is a sleazy stalker.
