Thoughts on Stuck

Final Thoughts When it comes to comedy you need to grab the audience quickly when it comes to something in the short form, this situation the couple find themselves in, does feel like we are watching an idea from Frasier, where we have two people that are trying to cover up something that would become embarrassing towards them if their friends found out. The reaction does get the laughs and you could only ask yourself, what you would do if you were left in this situation, we could also see this grow into something bigger, becoming a full feature with even more comedy along the way.

Overall: Comedy Begging to Give You More.
