Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts: Why Vandalism?

It's Short Reviews of RiffTrax Shorts, our new series where the title is almost as long as the actual reviews!  We are going to take a look at a RiffTrax Short almost every day this year, until we run out of shorts.  That will get us through the majority of the year, so strap in for madness!

(Released July 30, 2008)

The world is cold and twisted, and that's why people are vandals.  That's what Why Vandalism? is all about.

The first kid we follow, Jeff, feels like no one cares about him.  Ron hates himself and his parents because they nag him all the time.  And let's not forget about pool Burger.  He's actually poor.  That's why he's angry.  Can these boys be turned away from the lure of vandalism?  Can schools help?  Can churches help?  How will they learn good morals??

This is another one I didn't really remember, but it brought out more than a few chuckles.  I will be adding this into a more regular rotation.

I give Why Vandalism? four apple smashes out of five.
