Storyline

Dr. Stern, a clinical psychologist, leads a well ordered life, self-contained, neat, precise, and scheduled. We watch his appointments with eight patients, as he asks questions, listens, and advises them that all will improve in due time. Then, he gets a call from an oncologist who gives him very bad news. Suddenly, "in due time" becomes "right now": Stern's therapy methods change, and so do the fortunes of his patients. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Awesome, loved it!!!!!
11 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

This short film is completely hilarious! I enjoyed the blunt honesty the doctor takes. I can't decide when I laughed harder.... the butt fondler or when the doctor was discussing apes taking over the world, smoking dope! I love both Jorge Garcia and Kevin Pollack. Great choices in the cast.

I think the content would make a fantastic film. I was so disappointed it did not win the Oscar, in my eyes it was flawless. I hope to see it on the big screen.

Rob Pearlstein is very talented. I actually met him in Cabo with some friends... I'm glad I had the opportunity.
