Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A fantastical story, relayed in the form of short vignettes by director Robert Rodriguez, Shorts is the story of a magic wishing rock and kids' imaginations gone wild. The film plays a lot like the The Little Rascals (Our Gang) films from the 1920's-1940's: it's made up of short, comical episodes that focus on kids adventures and how imagination drives their play. When a magical rainbow rock falls from the sky and lands in the middle of tech-town Black Falls, a young boy Toe (Jimmy Bennett) discovers that the rock has the power to grant his every wish. The victim of constant bullying, Toe wishes for friends as unusual as himself and ends up with a posse of aliens who protect him while seriously complicating his life. As narrator, Toby quickly stops the film, explaining that his experience is really the middle of the story, and then rewinds repeatedly to relate various encounters between neighborhood kids and the magic rock. Each short is its own journey into a kid's imagination where wishes for everything from a treasure hunt, to a fortress guarded by crocodiles, a super smart baby with telepathic powers, and a booger monster grown from one boy's booger are immediately granted. These fantastical wishes wreak havoc on the entire Black Falls community: the children, the technology obsessed, disconnected Black Box employees, and the tyrannical Black Box boss Mr. Black (James Spader). In the end, the magic rock is a catalyst for change, encouraging kids and adults to work together and inspiring serious reflection regarding one's wishes, dreams, and goals. Rodriguez does a great job of portraying the wildness of kids' imaginations and viewers that delight in over-the-top ridiculousness and the overtly gross will laugh hysterically throughout the film. Unfortunately, those who demand restraint may find it overdone. (Ages 10 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Eleven-year-old Toe Thompson is the designated punching bag for the bullies of the suburban community of Black Falls, where his and everyone else's parents work for Black Box Industries, makers of the do-it-all gadget that's sweeping the nation. But during a freak storm, a mysterious Rainbow Rock, which grants wishes to anyone who finds it, falls from the sky. Suddenly, the neighborhood that Toe already thinks is weird is about to get a lot weirder. As the Rainbow Rock ricochets around the town - from kid to kid and parent to parent - wishes come true and quickly turn the neighborhood upside down in a wild rampage of everything from tiny aliens to giant boogers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing good to say . . . August 5, 2012
By Sean D
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Bad story, bad script, bad dialog and bad acting. Movie budget was probably about a hundred bucks and they kept the producer happy by not going over. Unless you're doing dishes and need steady background noise, avoid this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Family Fun!!! September 16, 2009
Format:DVD
I thought this was a really good and very funny movie that the whole family will love! It has an awesome plot, funny situations, and lovable characters. The movie is told out of order in a series of 'short' episodes! In the town of Black Falls, all the adults work for Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries Incorporated. Toby Thompson is a lonely kid who gets picked on gets picked on by Mr. Black's kids, until Toby finds a Rainbow colored wishing rock that will grant his every wish. Toby is just one of the many kids who have found the rock, like Nose Noseworthy, Loogie, Cole, and Helvetica Black. When Mr. Black gets ahold of the rock, he uses it for world domination. Can the kids of Black Falls stop him before he becomes mad with power? I highly recommend SHORTS!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the whole family April 7, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This entertaining movie is about some kids who find a wishing rock--and then tussle with the moral implications of having that much power. Of course, grownups manage to mess things up along the way. With cameos from Leslie Mann, Jon Cryer, James Spader, and William H. Macy, along with some fun special effects, this was one we all enjoyed. We showed it for my third-grader's sleepover, and it was a hit with everybody...also, clean without being boring. My six year old liked it just as much.

Sorry, this movie was awful to sit through for adults. My 6 year old liked it and my 14 year old thought it was terrible. I think for kids under 7 it would be a good fit but do yourself a favor and put the movie on in another room for the kids and watch something else.
