I enjoyed the short film Oopsie because has some great messages such as that is it okay to make mistakes -- find a solution and never give up on an idea or a task.

The story follows Dr. Professor (Candice Roberts) and Just Susan (Lily Jones Fortugno) who are on a mission to figure out how the human brain works and build a brain machine in order to do that.

This is an absolutely adorable short film, perfect for our audiences.The storyline is funny, creative and silly. Most of the film is shot in black and white, which looks like old films, especially with the black lines that fall in the middle of the screen. Plus, there is a big surprise at the end, that I wasn't expecting. Some of the best parts are when Dr. Professor comes right up to the front of the screen and talks directly to the fourth wall (the audience). Dr. Professor and Just Susan wear lab coats over their other clothes, which make them look very official. The Not Yeti Monster (Nayana Fielkov) dresses as a Yeti in a silly looking costume. The locations are great, from the lab to the outdoors scene. At one point the two main characters sing a fun song about making mistakes. The video for this is really fun and cute; it looks like a TikTok almost, and has great visuals. The acting is silly, almost slapstick, and makes you laugh. The Not Yeti Monster is my favorite character as it is funny and brings an interesting message to the film. I really enjoyed the background music and the production. It was super interesting to watch a movie in black and white, which I have never seen before. I also like the storyline about learning and not giving up. I love when Dr. Professor and Just Susan call the Not Yeti Monster and it gives them a new idea. I love the short clips of kids giving advice about what to do when you make a mistake. Those are adorable.

The message of this film is about understanding your mistakes, working them out and solving them.

I give Oopsie 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12, plus adults. It is a very optimistic message. By Keila V. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
