“Smackers” is an eighty two second time capsule of chicks in Junior High. It moves so fast you don’t see the joke coming and when it gets there, if you already knew it , you don’t even care the delivery is so spot-on. Brilliant color, perfect cinematography, smart soundtrack. Second time director Tara Miele (her other film is the short MIss GENTILBELLE) tells a better story in less than 2 minutes than many big time directors try to tell in 120. If all shorts were this good I’d go to those lame shorts festivals… But they ain’t and I won’t so until you wise up and stop I suggest you go wherever you can find Smackers playing so at least you’ll get one laugh of the evening.
