Why Watch? Because you’re still obsessed with that episode of Saved By the Bell where Mr. Belding’s brother Rod promises to take everyone on that rafting trip. And that’s okay.
This short is beyond charming. Four friends who think Rod Belding is a real person, track him down in order to find some clarity. The whole thing is sweet and funny and innocent – and the montage sequence midway through that recaps everything that was just seen is particularly hilarious.
With cameos from Ed Blatchford (who played Rod in that fateful episode), Dennis Haskins (the beloved Mr. Belding), and a soaring use of The Goo Goo Dolls, this short film takes pop culture compulsion seriously while celebrating the tiniest of moments in TV history.
What Will It Cost? Just 22 minutes of your time.
Does it get better any better than that?
