Product Description

Shorts 2009 (Blu-ray)

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

This movie really made me laugh out loud.
George Grimm Jr
This is a film that proves pure fantasy can be pleasant and adults don't have to be bored to death with the material their children drag them to.

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!!!

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.

My 8-year-old and 9-year-old LOVE this movie. I can't count how many times they've watched it. All the gross kid stuff is extremely funny to them. Like many kids, they've experienced or witnessed bullying, and I think the lead character is easy for viewers to sympathize with. It's also nice how viewers get an idea of what causes the bullies to act as they do. Of course, kids love the idea of having "special powers" to get what they want, and I think it's helpful for them to see how having such powers can get out of hand. The messages in the movie are good points of discussion to have in the family. I also like that I don't have to mute out profanity, or explain more mature situations - I don't remember hearing/seeing them in this movie! That makes it truly a kids movie.

We got the Blu-ray that also came with a digital copy. So, we got two discs: one for the Blu-ray player, and one regular DVD that works in the portable DVD player. This made everyone VERY happy! We could take it in the car, but still have the really sharp Blu-ray version when we watched on the home system.

I recommend it for the kids' video library.

A cute family movie geared towards the younger generation! It was fun to watch with the children though.Mostly clean with a little crudeness.

A fun kid flick from the SPY KIDS (et al) director. It's silly, goofy, fast-paced, visually bizarre, well-acted, and fun. It's as good as any kid flick out there, and better than lots (WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE? yuch.), but not in the same league as TOY STORY and their ilk.

I don't know why so many people over-criticize this movie. It ain't Fellini- it's a kids movie. It's *supposed* to be non-linear.

Lighten up. Enjoy it for what it is.

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.

My daughter saw this movie in the theatre a few years ago and just wanted to see it again. Not as good as the SPY KIDS brand which Rodriguez directed as well.
