Movie Info

A dejected futon salesman competes with a cocky co-worker to win a mini-marathon and score a coveted assistant manager position in the store where they both work. Fran Molon specializes in futons, but everyone in his small town has their mind set on mattresses. With a mini-marathon fast approaching, Fran's colleague suggests that they compete to see who can get the fastest time, and allow the winner to become the new assistant manager. Before long, Fran is training around the clock. Does he possess the drive and endurance to cross the finish line first, or is he forever doomed to be the red-headed stepchild of the furniture business.

Critic Reviews for The Mini

All Critics (8)

Overlooking low production values and shaky performances from unknown actors is one thing, but when you put together a comedy that isn't particularly funny, then we have a big problem.

Goes a long way on performances alone, which are among the most spot-on archetypal comedic renderings I've seen in years.

Projection Booth

This micro-indie has a full-sized heart and enough humor to make its scale immaterial

What Would Toto Watch?

This is a movie that is out to forge comedy out of character and creative situations, a feat few in today's shock jock realm fully understand.

The Mini has some stylistic grace, and obviously is a work of heart and soul. But Beck left his wit out of it -- and that's the rub.

Despite its flaws, there's something likeable about The Mini. . . . If I were to run afoul of the law and the judge ordered me to watch the same movie for a year, I'd choose The Mini over Clerks.
