Storyline

While standing in the middle of the street contemplating the motto on a quarter, Robert is killed by an on-coming SUV. In the waiting room of the afterlife, a punctilious clerk, Gil, pulls up Robert's record on the computer and tells the young man that he's damned. Lots of little bad things have added up, and his score is negative. Robert bolts back to earth, with Gil and his colleagues in hot pursuit. Robert visits his girlfriend, drinks a smoothie with his dad, foils a robbery, and dances. His positive points are accumulating as Gil (and death) close in. Is it up or down for our Bobby? Little things can mean a lot. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Robert: Honey, I'm going to be going away for a little while.
Ashley: [sleepily] Okay.
Robert: Well a long while. Forever really... um... but we'll see each other again... I... I guess.
[pause]
Robert: Actually, that's not true. You see I, I didn't get enough points and I bought chocolate for the chocolate and I never danced and now they're going to take me away and I really don't think you'll be joining me in Hell, so... I think we might want to see other people.

Beautiful! Just beautiful!
20 June 2004 | by X2MK0See all my reviews

We loved this short film. When one of us got AtomFilms hi-def, this was one of the first films we got on it. Simply splendid! We loved it! The little details made the film! Aspiring film makers, take notes! :) The music was brilliant!

Robert dies, goes to purgatory and discovers he is destined for hell(for little things; like he never danced... aside from at a funeral). Robert escapes and gets a bit of a second chance. He starts out scaring the bejeepers out of two paramedics, who -thought- his body was caput, then he heads out to make things right.

This film has an educational quality, too. yeah. We learned that smoothies can help save you from eternal damnation. Good to know.
