Five ‘Shorts’ DVDs to Give Away!

posted by Nell Minow

This is exciting! The fantasy/adventure/comedy “Shorts” is about to be released on DVD and thanks to the wonderful folks at Warner Brothers I have FIVE copies to give away to my beloved readers.

In my review for Beliefnet and the Chicago Sun-Times, I said,

A rainbow-colored wishing rock creates comic chaos in a film from Robert Rodriguez about bullies, family communication and being very, very careful what you wish for. It is also about an army of crocodiles, a telepathic super-genius baby, and a pig-tailed villain named after a font.

It is imaginative, fresh, funny, and a ton of fun for families. If you want to be one of the five lucky winners, send me an email at with “Shorts” in the subject line and tell me the silliest wish in the trailer.

    Were I not as recent winner (and thank you very much for the DVD set on The Christians), I would apply for this DVD. It is a work worth watching more than once.
