A Bit Silly But Engaging
9 August 2013 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

Dr Robert Middling is a dentist and one day he is surprised to find a pirate in his surgery . The pirate is suffering from toothache and Dr Robert tells him he'll have to extract the tooth but the pirate warns him he will not be having an injection by a needle under any circumstances which is going to make the extraction very difficult

Another short film starring Kevin Spacey , this time a broad comedy featuring a pirate . I should hasten to add this involves the pirates of legend immortalised by the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson and not modern day pirates who are tall , skinny , black and live in the horn of Africa , this is old school piracy of olde with cries of " oo ar Jim lad " not to be taken too seriously

One slight problem is that the comedy is a little bit forced . The pirate doesn't like needles and the plotting revolves around the dilemma of how does Dr Robert take out a rotting tooth from a violent dangerous patient ? Everything is played strictly for laughs and it does descend in to silly farce at some points but that's its nature and for a short film is engaging
