This film made me crave coffee. It has nice effects, music, and charm. There is one moment when the special effect portray the lead actress as a hoarder. I found that scene very funny.

This is a comedic short about a woman with an addiction to coffee. It is light hearted and would be fun to share with coffee lovers. This film has a very cute and carefree vibe. The actress is funny and the commentary is original. There isn't anything I disliked about the film.

It has great cinematography, audio and lighting. The location primarily takes place inside a car with coffee house scenes added. Those scenes match the actual clips in film. I was pleased as a viewer with the overall camera work, angles and tight scenes.

Within the two minutes of this film I liked the car location. All other locations inserted are also enjoyable. As a fan of coffee house music this film does not disappoint. The music is very upbeat. Going back to the hoarding scene - the actress's reactions are perfect. It is funny, but it's not quite believable that the all those cups fell from her car.

The one character is a young actress who portrays her coffee addiction quite believably. I didn't recognize the star of the film but would be interested in seeing more of her work, as well as that of the directors. I applaud the editor's work all the merging scenes and various clips. The cinematographer's work is also well executed

I recommend this for KIDS FIRST! Film Festival partners. It makes a great short film that is lighthearted, yet poignant. The message might be enjoy what you love in moderation. If you need aspirin as a coffee topping, then you should probably seek help. Note: consuming coffee to this magnitude should be for adults only.

This film offers the comic relief I was looking for rather than learning a lesson. The ending, where she's ordering more coffee and listing the ingredients made me laugh.

I give this 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 to 18, plus adults. It's funny and family friendly. Comedy is the special interest. Reviewed by Elle S., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
