Pretty Bad Short
Mae Day: The Crumbling of a Documentary (1992)

* (out of 4)

Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier made this short in film school and I must admit that I thought it was quite awful. Basically the filmmakers in the film are doing a documentary on a transsexual named Emelda Mae but the production doesn't go as planned.

MAE DAY is a pretty darn awful film and I think both Smith and Mosier know this since their introduction has them darkened out in a joke to keep their identity hidden. Even they call it a piece of junk and that's exactly what it is. There's just nothing funny about anything going on and the overall tone is just all over the place. I'm not sure if the documentary footage was from a real film and Smith and Mosier just added some of the dialogue about a troubled production or what. Either way it's not funny, clever or shows any signs of what the two would eventually do in their careers.
