Storyline

"Eyeball Eddie" is the story of the stormy relationship between a prosthetic glass eye and the insecure boy stuck behind it. What follows is a dark comedy about the price of popularity. In the world of high-school wrestling, there is only the strong and the weak - and EDDIE MALICK may be the weakest you've ever seen. Shy, scrawny, and perpetually body-slammed, Eddie seems as fragile and pathetic as his own morbid glass eye. But when that eye accidently pops out during a match, Eddie seizes the moment, pins his horrified opponent to the mat - and suddenly realizes that the perfect strategy for victory sits in his socket. Of course, as Eddie continues to exploit this advantage, word of his victories spreads through the school - and Eddie becomes a freakish sensation. The bleachers fill with fans eager to see another Eyeball Eddie gross-out show - and while this sudden celebrity status has long been his dream, Eddie begins to worry...is my eyeball becoming more popular than I am?

Quality film
6 June 2002 | by jeansheridanSee all my reviews

This is a really well made short film. Good lighting, good sound, excellent performances. The director made the most of her budget. The eyeball make-up looked great (and realistic). And it played out like a really good short story ...no extra padding, every scene had a point. Not all stories need 90 minutes to be told. I just wish more short films were available. Michael Rosenbaum fans will be happy too since he has plenty of shirtless scenes and he gets to play the fratboy ass character he can probably do in his sleep. I sort of wish he had made more little movies like this instead of getting stuck in a Smallville contract. I think the lead actor was in Freaks and Geeks too, but I'm not positive.
