From Michael Kobzeff Date 5/16/2008 **1/2
i thought i missed the gag, had to reread it again.

From Molly Date 4/18/2008 ****
I really like it, but I think you should put at the end after the mom's last line have one of the kids say, "well, it means..." then before they say it, have the logo appear. Nice work.

From Alicia Date 4/1/2008 ****
Really funny. Liked it!

From Josh A. Echevarria Date 3/31/2008 ****
It really a great idea. I liked it. It was well written even though it was 2 pages. You kept it simple and short. Straight to the point which is how it should be. Great job. Next step is to write a short film script.
