Did you ever wonder what lays at the beginning of a rainbow? Find out in Shorts, an adventurous comedy about a magical wishing rock.

Toby Thompson (Jimmy Bennett) has never been a cool kid. He talks to imaginary friends and always gets bullied at school by Helvetica Black (Jolie Vanier), her brother Cole (Devon Gearhart) and their gang of cronies. The Black’s are the most powerful family in their community thanks to Mr. Black’s invention—the Black Box. It’s a cube made of many smaller cubes that adjust into anything you could possibly need: a cell phone, a baby monitor, a loudspeaker, even a toaster!


The Wishing Rock

The day Toby finds the wishing rock, everything changes. Of course, Toby wasn’t the first to find the rock. It all started with Toby’s friend Loogie (Trevor Gagnon) and his two brothers. Instead of wishing for world peace, they wish for a fortress with a giant mote filled with man-eating crocodiles and deadly snakes. And they are nearly killed by their own creations.


Hungry for Power

Once word of the wishing rock gets out, everyone wants to get their hands on it—even Toby’s parents and Mr. Black. But the wishing rock is wreaking havoc on the community. Everyone is becoming power hungry, and the only way to end the chaos is to get the rock as far away as possible.


The Bottom Line

Why is a movie about a wishing rock called Shorts? Well, it has nothing to do with clothing. The movie is filmed in a series of five segments, each called “shorts.” You watch the movie out of order, which gets a little confusing at times. Shorts is definitely bizarre and unrealistic. It has a few laugh-out-loud moments, but not enough to get your money’s worth. Shorts is definitely a rental.
