Bowers' special fx make any of his films worth seeing.
1 December 1999 | by mtoscanoSee all my reviews

Charles Bowers was first an animator, and his flair for stop-motion shows in this amazing short comedy. The excellent special effects will truly amaze even the most CGI-jaded viewer. Luckily, Bowers' creative wit matches his agility with the camera - there're some crazy and hilarious sight gags here.
