Film Description
Rated PG-13 for suggestive content... If suggestive content bothers you, PLEASE DO NOT WATCH (I don't care about getting bad ratings, as much as I'm concerned of telling you a joke that might offend your nature. In closed company, I would pick and choose who to share this joke with). :)

**NOTE**
More and more people are not "getting" the joke, and I've avoided commenting on this, because I think the humor is that much better for those who are astute enough to "catch" the set-up line. But if you don't catch it the first time through, keep a closer ear to the dialogue right after Chester sniffs out Charlie... Sorry if it is not easily picked up on, but I still think it adds to the subtle humor. :)

This is a joke-joke in a short... Hope you get a chuckle!

Thank You everyone for having a look and your feedback!!!

Good editing, Great VO (I like the accent especially). An old joke but they are usually the best and it was reasonably well told if a bit repetative (too many Charlie's). Raised a smile which is pretty hard to do for me. I don't know if you've seen my effort yet? technically it is way behind yours but it has a joke which you may like - http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/34357

GREAT voice acting. This is really well done.

Look, I'll hold my hands up and admit this. You were on a winner with me as soon as I realised there was a chicken in this. But the voice over for this is quite simply brilliant - as was its execution - and it makes me wonder what kind of gems hide inside Fedaredan.
It made me laugh. It made me laugh real hard.
5 stars.
And Thanks.

Although I thought the VO to be great, it's impossible for me to pick up those last sentences.
Meaning: I have no clue what that darn joke is all about. :(

Anyways, good movie it seems.

Sorry I still can't get the joke. But anyway it was a very well put together little movie and the voice overs were good.

Good one, cleverly set up to the joke. Good voice overs, had a good story, and no unnessecary stuff. It's good that there's some movies out there that don't need super cool titles or "special effects" to make a good film. Well done.

This was a perfect length film. A good campfire story, and a great joke. Now don't that beat all? hehe

I am sure you are well aware of how good your voice over is- its fantastic! But what I truly enjoyed was the subtleness of the humor. It took me a moment but then I laughed myself silly. Well done!

OK, NOW I get it! I admit that I had to watch it twice to get the punchline. The way you used the chicken and rabbit outfits was quite funny.

Jorge: I take it back about the chicken movies... this one was good.

Yeah, any movie where a chicken wants to bugger a buzzard is pure gold.

Everyone has said how great the voice acting is and I agree...best I've heard for a western..and I got the joke after a bit!

Great VO. I recall hearing this one a few years back but you made it fresh by putting it in movie form. Keep up the good work.

P.S. - I'm not sure why the VO in my short were reverbing. I have to double check my settings. I also noticed it after I had exported it. Thanks for your feedback.

I definently got a kick out of this! Really funny, editing and overall story flowed well. VO dialogue was excellent and then entire premise worked well for such a short movie. Awesome job!

I really liked this - I like short films, they are quick and to the point and don't send me to sleep!
I thought it was funny too, you have some good ideas!

Excellent voice over, good joke.

This is the second joke I've seen turned into a movie. I wasn't sure how I felt about the concept the first time, though I did laugh and found the other movie well made. Now, though, I'm sold. Turning jokes into movies is ok by me.

Not bad.
Plot - OK. Nothing spectacular.
VO - Excellent. Really liked the narrator's accent.
Editing - Good. Nothing more, nothing less.

Would of got 4 stars for all of these, but some jokes fell short.

Hilarious. The acting was just superb, and if you had used more of a monotone or subdued voice, it wouldn't have worked as well. It may have been short, but five stars nonetheless. :)

Great movie about a joke, I'll have to agree with some of the others when it comes to the length. But you can't change good old jokes. Also some great voices helped alot. Its much more fun to watch a movie with VO's than without

Very well told and represented movie of a REALLY bad joke... Still, this seems to be a good way to create short films. All in all you could be on to something.

I want to write "short and sweet" but it's funnier and better than that. Well done all around, from editing to voice. Even the joke is very good and unexpected.

- rjb2112

Very good, but I didn't get the punchline.

Posted on December 18, 2005
- Denzell

If it was funny, then I didn't get it. However, the movie was well produced, the voice acting was spot on and the story was well put together. I liked that you left the music out - any music would only have spoiled it - and that it was kept quite short as befitted such a movie. Overall, very good, but being comedy which I didn't get, I can't go any higher than three.

Very good, but I couldn't actually make out the punchline of the joke. Clever use of the chicken suit though, which made it funny even if I didn't here the punchline.

Plot - Good - Not really much there but i guess it wasn't needed to tell a single joke *4
Script - Great - Extremely well writen and presented with some excellent VO work -5
Music/Sound - Fair - The movie definitly good have used a backing track. Maybe even a re-recording with the volume turned down low so as not to draw attention from the VO work *3
Editing - Good - Well edited with a good use of scenes *4

Please check out my latest production Visions of Johanna if you get the chance.

A classic joke, and you did a good job telling it with your film. The voice over was great, but some of the scenes were to long.

I liked the retelling of this classic joke. A few scenes could have been used to shorten a few of the scenes, but VO was nicely done. Nice work.

It had me smiling the entire time, but it didn't make me laugh out loud. You're a really good movie-maker, nice job. Nice mood and very nice voice-overs. Normally I don't give a 4-5 unless it makes me laugh out loud at least once, but I just really liked this one. Nice job.

Ha Ha.. funny.. but im a critic. Would have been 5 stars but too short for me. At least 4 or more minutes for a 5* in my book. Awsome Voice acting, Im a male and do the female voices in my moives which suck lol.. Keep up the great work. I was very impressed.
