Ignore the strange doctrinal issues and just enjoy
This is a truly odd little short about the afterlife. The film begins with a very, very frazzled lady (Sandy) having a very bad day. Eventually, it gets even worse when she accidentally dies and wakes up in purgatory! They think it was a suicide (which it wasn't) and want her to stay there in a miserable dead-end job and work amongst idiots for God knows how long.
The film excels with its wicked sense of humor--I especially enjoyed the scissors scene. Pergatory is like working for a brainless bureaucracy and all the little jokes are quite cute. As for the films doctrinal issues, it will most likely offend a lot of people. My advice is don't judge the film too quickly--it's all apparently meant in fun and reasonably good taste.
