Great short makes DVD worth rental for 'Mr. Show' fans
This short comes with the DVD "Melvin Goes To Dinner" and is essential viewing for the Odenkirk completest. For those who found the accompanying feature not representative of the 'Mr. Show' sensibility, this short makes up for it as a "mockumentary" of the submission of the feature film to Frank's personal film festival which seems to occur in his parent's rec-room. The short is played very straight and subsequently hilarious when Blieden and White get into a fight over winning the heart of Frank's grandma, Beatrice. Other choice moments include winning every award and bunking up in Frank's bedroom. Odenkirk would be well served by making more of these as he and David Cross so often did during Mr. Show. Highly recommended.
