The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Fun for the whole dysfunctional family

Well, okay, maybe not the whole family: there's a bit or two of salty language.

DysEnchanted is a six-minute short (plus, inevitably, two minutes of credits) by Terri Edda Miller, in which various storybook heroines — you know them all — are at their weekly group-therapy meeting. This could have been extremely silly in the wrong hands, but Miller keeps the silliness dialed down while making the characters fit together well. I liked it well enough to hunt it down on DVD.

There's a Web site, and for the moment at least, it can be caught at YouTube, with an occasional blip. (I saw it at Nina's place.)
