A brilliant short film, depicting the trials and tribulations of film school geeks who come to California with dreams of becoming the next Spielberg. They all set out to make short films, get them viewed, and hopefully land a deal to direct their first feature. This film pokes fun at all the wannabes.

a very funny and well-executed take on the recent phenomenon of short films that have saturated hollywood.
22 January 2000
young filmmakers have recently come to view the short film as a "calling card" and ticket into directing feature films and television. often made with so-called "mci money" (i.e. friends and family) these films are frequently satiric responses to other films that have struck a chord with the public. this helps gives an instant frame of reference for the viewer rather than wasting precious time setting up a unique world and environment in what usually only amounts to 10-15 minutes. spoof! - as its name implies - is funny on a couple levels because it is making fun of just that phenomenon: that is, spoof! essentially spoofs spoofs, which is a very clever and timely idea. writing, directing and performances are all very strong here, and there are loads of laughs. i liked it a lot.
