Why do I consider this scripted fiction? Because, however minimal, they did have to design the skits and silly opening patter.

How did I rate the very minimal acting? Honestly, it was pretty terrible but it was more than enough to fulfill the creative vision.

But most importantly, how can a 27 movie garner 5 octopuses? In the immortal words of Leisure Suit Larry “I may not know art but I know what I like.”

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
