A group of neighborhood kids discover a special rock that allows any wish to come true.

"Fast and funny, and grown-ups will not suffer sitting through it.  Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"More zippy, diverting fun from Robert Rodriguez's family filmmaking factory.  Justin Chang, Variety

Editor's Note
After a violent detour for GRINDHOUSE, director Robert Rodriguez returns to the family film genre of SPY KIDS with this adventure. In SHORTS, the suburb Black Falls may seem quiet, but the arrival of a wish-granting rock causes the small town to fall into chaos. William H. Macy, John Cryer, Leslie Mann, and James Spader star in this magic-filled film that was shot in Rodriguez's beloved Austin, Texas.

"[F]ast-paced, imaginative and often cute....Robert Rodriguez tells it in a snappy series of shorts that create freshness and spontaneity." 08/21/2009

USA Today 7 of 10
Fast-paced, imaginative and often cute, Shorts is slight but enjoyable family fare...Though the story covers familiar ground, director Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids) tells it in a snappy series of shorts that create freshness and spontaneity...Toe (Jimmy Bennett), a target of bullies, tries to outwit his young enemies with the help of a magical, multicolored rock that makes wishes come true and rocks the neighborhood...The community revolves around Black Box Industries, the maker of a multipurpose gadget that can serve as anything from a Blackberry-style communications device to a cheese grater. Every adult on the block works for the company and answers to the venal Mr. Black (James Spader), who is so busy trying to expand the Black Box's uses that he ignores his two bratty kids...The undeniably worthy message is that parents can become too obsessed with work and not take enough time for each other or to listen to their children...Gross bathroom humor is still a big part of the adventure. A germ-phobic inventor dad (William H. Macy) and his lonely, booger-eating son (Jake Short) must contend with a giant, menacing nasal emission that threatens to return the favor and devour the boy. This gooey-gross segment is unlikely to enthrall anyone over 12, but younger viewers probably will enjoy it...The rock bounces among the kids, whose wishes backfire or add unexpected, newfound dangers. One boy points out, "Why not wish for world peace?" Great idea, but what kind of action movie would that make?..The climactic scene is too frenzied, but another timeless message rises above the ruckus: Be careful what you wish for. - Claudia Puig
