I wasn’t going to watch this film. In no way was I going to watch what I considered to be a ridiculous teddy bear movie. No. way.
So why did I watch it? Damn if I know; but while I did something strange happened. I went from thinking ‘what kind of ridiculous crap is this’ to ‘run, little teddy bear, run!’ to ‘so putting the stuffing in the bears at Build-a-Bear Workshop is actually the second part of the process, if you don’t count killing the animal, and not the first.’ I must applaud filmmakers Jason Butler and Brendan Butler for turning me around on this one. I present to you for Short Film Saturday: Tufty.
