On his way home from the sugar confections shop, Andreas stops by his good friend Lennie's house. Andreas knocks on the door, but is Lennie home? He may not be, but someone else certainly is! Oh, and Danny shows up. Hilarious hijinks ensue.

This movie was directed by my friend Lennie, who actaully has an account on fxhome (BaneyBoy), and I just happen to be in it. We all hope you enjoy it.

GOOD short film. I really really liked it.

The only problem was that my dad walked in exactly when the giant word VAGASIL popped up. He went "Vagasil? Who's movie is this?" and I replied, "Ahh...Some kid's".

haha. Great job.

5/5

Rating: +1

why is everyone giving this 5/5 and saying it was ingenius and hilarious? I dunno...yeh it was well done and the old film was a good touch but...this to me doesnt deserve the 5/5's its getting. The only funny part was the vagisil part i guess, other than that it was nothing special. Ill give it a 3/5.

Oh, that was wacky. I especially liked your little walk. You guys should make a series of the Wacky Three and put yourselves in different settings.
I can see it now:
The Wacky Three in Plumb Crazy!
The Wacky Three in Home Disrepair!

Now all you need is more personal abuse. 4/5

YES, i have the internet again!

thanks to everyone who posted/scored/watched the movie. glad a good ammount of you all liked it

Jamie, I use chromonator for the outside shots in an attempt to make them look as if they were shot at night. the old timey effect was just something i applied in mindows movie maker

Kid entropy, this is not the last wacky three. we actually have 2 more planned, and hopefully they will be better, as this first one was just us toying around with the idea.

It wasn't bad. The frame rate could've been just a little faster, though.

Glad you liked it Brett, as it differed much from the last time you reviewed one of my movies. Do you, you remember Brettsta? Bad Action Movie....?

just kidding. Haven't seen you around in a loooong time. how is it going?

a fantastic idea! such movies are rare and, in my opinion, really entertaining, because they are something different. I like it! the music, the way the characters walk, the old b/w style, everything is well thought out! 5 points from me for a nice motion picture =)

Been meaning to ask, was the walking style another little nod to Monkey Island, to go with the music?

actaully, the walk was something I just pointed out that we should do, as in most old movie the motions were very exagerrated. When edited, we listened to the monkey island track, and saw that it cued up exactly with the music. basically we just got lucky

Lol, a 4/5 for this great movie.

Waser, you and your friends have done it again. I thouroughly enjoyed watching this movie. In fact, I've enjoyed watching all of your movies, and all of them have been either a 4 if not a 5 out of 5. Great work Waser.

"Mmm...delicious! What flavor?"
