If a worst short film than “Karaoke Show” exists, I hope never to see it. German filmmaker Karl Tebbe created and stars in this pointless, joyless effort as a nude, would-be Michael Jackson who simulates the gloved one’s “Billie Jean” for the benefit of a fat man laying on a couch. To twist the MGM tune: that’s entertainment?

Yes, if you want to see a bald, naked German shaking his wiener schnitzel in stop-motion animation while a blaring soundtrack rips off a two-decade-old pop ditty, be my guest. How this slop got accepted into the Slamdance Film Festival is beyond me.

    My favorite film of Slamdance 2008 by far. Karl Tebbe has balls. And it shows.
