All nine shorts on this mediocre program try hard to be outrageous; the results range from mildly amusing to truly awful. A bright spot is Wes Kim's black-and-white video Why It's a Good Thing (2002, 5 min.), a comic exploration of what the world would be like if every Asian-American subjected to dumb racist comments were a martial arts expert. Also good (although the laugh track made me wince) is Dino Ignacio's video Maritess vs. the Superfriends (2002, 8 min.), an animated parody of the 1970s children's cartoon in which a Filipina maid reveals the dark side of working for superheroes—Superman, for example, uses his X-ray vision to ogle her through her clothes. 125 min.
