The movie didn`t make me cry, but Thedobkins` comment just about did. God, it is so right. I`ve got a 1 and 1/2 old little girl, and that sounds awesome.

that bastard made her drop those perfectly good ding dongs :|

on another note i thought this was pretty good. certainly not the best acting but it was still pretty good. id even pay to see this in a theater if it were done any justice.

I don`t see how people like this so much. Even without the bad acting, the dialogue is shoddy, the apparently poignant moments detailing the long-term relationship crammed into a short timespan are cliché and cringe-worthy. I`m not one of those people who hates everything and I don`t hate this, it`s a good effort....5 out of 10.

There is terror before the possibility of death, but often calm before its certainty.

I like how some of the comments on here are like
`Hoo hah I am a macho funny man on the Internets who likes to talk about dicks and be funny`
*Slow claps*
Loved this, amazing work!

That line that the guy said "I don`t want to be alone. Do want to spend the rest of your life with me?" was pretty powerful, I almost had a tear.

Awesome. But if you were going to die in 4 hours, why would you waste all that time? And couldn`t they have gotten on a plane to get away?

"This is the time, man! To go out in style! I`m going to eat cool ranch doritos with chocolate milk and watch The Never Ending Story." ... YES! although id probably watch something cornier like pride and prejudice (BBC version) ... keira knightly makes me want to eat whenever i see her. she`s so SKINNAAY D: her skinny-ness makes me want to eat FOR her.

@Crucible So when everyone else is repenting, you`ll be fcking up someone else`s last 4 hours? That`s horrible that you could even think about deliberately denying someone`s chance to face their final destination with live eyes, and for such a selfish reason at that. I hope you aren`t serious.

I feel like the idea was great but could have been carried out better. It was still a fantastic short, and fun to watch, but award-winning?

@ Crucible:

You`d probably commit murder, anyway.
Regardless of the situation, as long as you
get away with it. 4 hours, my a ss.

That makes you a f*cking disfunctional
individual. Good luck in life, tard.

Hey, I`m a socially inept retard and you`re a lonely girl with low self esteem, how about we spend the next 4 hours of our life acting out (poorly) uninteresting aspects of a long-term relationship and attempt (but fail) to make it seem somehow poignant.

Not especially well done, to be honest, though this line made up for some of it:

"This is the time, man! To go out in style! I`m going to eat cool ranch doritos with chocolate milk and watch The Never Ending Story."

I don`t think there`s anything I`d desperately want to do. Maybe get my hands on a taxi and offer free rides to kill the time.
Gotta do something.

It kinda lost it`s impact at the end in my opinion...

A better one (at least in my view) was a simulation viewed from space of what would happen if a big meteor hit Earth. Now that made me wow.

I remember this from...gosh, a couple years ago maybe? One of my favorite links/shorts. It`s very profound. I especially like when he asks if she wants to know his name and she just shakes her head, because it`s not important.

hmmm... 4 hours to live. I would steal a large quantity of guinness and dump it all into a bath tub and bathe in it while making phone calls to everyone i care about to say goodbye. Once that is done I would try and get laid. Gotta get laid before I die. Rest of the time ill just be eating all amounts of junk food playing video games. Then if I`m drunk enough I just may pass out and that would be nifty.

I have a 2 year old little girl. Her Mom and I would spend that four hours making her the happiest kid in the world! Anything she wanted at all! Horsey rides, play chase, hug her, tickle her, chocolate, take her to a pet store and let her play with puppies. Anything, anything. What`s important to you, right? She is to me.

The acting was not so hot, but other than that it was incredible. I definitely became absorbed in it.

terribad acting, awesome in just about every other way.
"This is the time, man! To go out in style! I`m going to eat cool ranch doritos with chocolate milk and watch The Never Ending Story."
I laughed at this.
"Wait, I don`t want to die alone. Do you want to spend the rest of your life with me?"
I got teary at this.

I was kind of expecting the news to tell them at the end that they got it wrong again and they would all live.

One of my favorite scenes from the Simpons, somebody told Homer to live like today was his last day...then they cut to a shot where he was sitting on a street curb, surrounded by empty beer bottles, balling his eyes out and saying "I`m not ready to die!"

Hilarious!

I know if I had 4 hours to live I`d be damn torn up.

I really liked this video. I hate the fact that in every doomsday scenario everyone is running around trying to tie up loose ends or do something they`ve been too afraid to do. In this one it shows what you`re really supposed to do, just enjoy yourself in the little things.

"What would you do if you had four hours to live?"

Drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. Then maybe go running around the city shooting any doomsdayers and religious fanatics that are corrupting everyone`s last moments on Earth with doubt and anxiety. Yeah, that`s what I`d do.
