"I Did It for Love" is in many ways the comedy version of "Dog Day Afternoon." It centres on hapless, amateur criminals who, given a different set of circumstances, might at once be your drinking buddies and their father-in-law's worst nightmare. Several stars align at just the right moment, and both hilarity and the unexpected ensue. Surrounding the would-be-robbers are a host of supporting characters, each of them serving an unexpected purpose; one that is no doubt calculated, but seemingly spontaneous. Plot, characters, music, and editing are all utilized to their full advantage, and create a tight comedy experience rare in a lot of student films.

The short is directed by Quinn Spicker, a Vancouver-based filmmaker with a number of successful films under his belt, including an adaptation of a Stephen King short story, "Harvey's Dream." From the get-go, this is a laugh riot of a comedy, incorporating elements of non-linear structure, mystery, romance, and a cosmic sense of situational irony. It's handled with precision and care, and a consistent tone throughout. The cast is all sensational, and embody their characters pitch perfectly. If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend that you do: you'll have a great time.
