 "Moviebonics" Review 
Add to favorites
There's no other way to put'll either love "Moviebonics" or it will irritate the heck out of you. A bit too divisive to be considered an award-winner, "Moviebonics" follows two fundamental evangelists (think an amusing cross between Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses) whose door-to-door evangelism brings them into the home of a couple so enamored with cinema that they only speak in famous film quotations. While the performances themselves feel just a touch off, the film quote-spewing couple are over-the-top while the evangelists are a bit too caricaturish, "Moviebonics" is beautifully designed and scripted. It's a blast to sit there and see how many quotes you recognize, and only a soft ending keeps "Moviebonics" from being an "A" range short.
