I was getting confused as to whether this was a musical or a time travel genre. I couldnt quite follow all the lyrics, and I hope this team would publish their lyrics somewhere because I really love the Buy my thing, dadidadidah song. Quite funny. I love how they had a few different song styles in there as well, and the closing credit song was really entertaining.

Who cares if you didn't draw "time travel"? Just make a time travel movie!
This young team had clearly put in some effort, even if they dreaded the musical genre. Their efforts paid off and they managed to make a hilarious parody of more than one thing at the same time. A "Groundhog Day" rip-off with a worker's ethic and a ref that just keeps saying "play on!"
The sequence is repetitive and the ending is unbelievable, but the central character is so likable that you don't mind him winning for a change. Props for using the "V" car, unexpected special effects and everything you had at your disposal.

Musical is a fantastically hard genre to pull off, and Chicken Corn Soup Productions  did it very impressively. Their score was catchy and the music was definitely woven in with the storytelling. Some aspects of this film were rather confusing, which distracted me from the great score as I missed singing while I was trying to work out what was going on.
The lead actor carried his role through quite well, and created an empathic character for the audience to relate to. I had a bit of a hard time understanding the plot, it was all fine until he went back in time, at which point I got rather confused and lost. Reflecting on it, I'm not entirely sure there was a point so much as an artistic decision.
Chicken Corn Soup Productions did a great job of fitting the required elements into this film, and were one of the first teams I saw to take the fabricator role literally. The broken toy element fit in well, though I think it was overemphasized a little bit. The integration of the dolly shot was not something I remember but I'm sure it was there and it can't have been jarring if I didn't notice it.
The score in this film was definitely my favourite aspect, and the focus on an everyday blue collar worker was a clever angle to take for this film. The actor was good, the camera shots were well framed, but I still find myself thinking that if Run Lola Run was a musical about a guy who was late for work, this is what we'd get.

Run Lola Run - with music!
Distracting (but highly catchy) musical jigs and strange encounters, the main character is just absorbing enough to keep you somewhat interested and amused. The script lagged with the repetition, rather than gained momentum, and the acting was hammy. Yet, oddly enough, I found this flick entertaining, simply because the cast seemed to be having a wonderful time!

Super-entertaining muscial short! Really well-done, with great music, despite otherwise average production standards.
I want to get the soundtrack!
