Comments about FILM FESTIVAL IN A BOX:

I bought the Love one to use for a date night with my boyfriend. We are both big movie buffs and I thought it would be fun.

The films were ok. We thought the first was original but then the next three seemed to be very similar in concept to the first. The films got shorter as we progressed through the disk. Overall it is a cute idea, but the length was very disapointing. It left you wanting and not in a good way.

I would recomend this if the films had been longer or if there had been more films of the same length on the disc. It cost more than a regular movie and was 1/4 the length.

    Comments about FILM FESTIVAL IN A BOX:

    I bought this as a gift for my husband who is movie lover. I was so thrilled by the gift. We watched the movies and they were wonderful! The only thing that would have made these better is if they were longer. They just seemed too short.

    Comments about FILM FESTIVAL IN A BOX:

    I gave this product 4 stars because I did enjoy three of the films. The last film I did not enjoy at all. I wish that they had been longer though. This would make a great gift for somebody though.

    Although the box was a lot smaller than expected, I think that my boyfriend will really enjoy it, I would recommend it to anyone who loves that particular genre, and I found the [@] clips to be really helpful!

    Comments about FILM FESTIVAL IN A BOX:

    This is a great idea, and having your own film festival is
    a joy, but when the comedy selection is NOT funny or even
    remotely comic. one wonders, is this a "ripoff"?

      Comments about FILM FESTIVAL IN A BOX:

      This is a terrific idea, [...] but there is nothing else included. We watched the Comedies disk, and the short films were family friendly, professional quality shorts from unknown filmmakers, and they were genuinely funny. We all really liked the four movies and the box.If only there were more. I would rather have paid a higher price and gotten, say, a ballot and a pack of microwave popcorn and a box of candy. Also, half of the series are appropriate for families (Comedies, Love, Fantastical, and Powered by Girls), while the others are geared to adults (Chillers, Dark Comedies, Pottymouth and Zombies). That distinction should be made on the product page.I would definitely get this as a gift for someone, but would supplement it with snacks and other little touches.

        I got this as a birthday gift for a hard to buy for niece. But she loves movies, loves games, and just loves love. So when I saw it, I knew that "The Film Festival in a Box" was the exact gift for her. And she told me that the gift was so different, so unexpected, and just so perfect.

          I purchased this as a gift for my friend. While the movies are funny, the total running time was much shorter than expected and the box does not look expensive.

              I purchased this for my daughter & son-in-law...They both love movies! This was perfect for them..They called me and thanked me for the "original" gift! My daughter said it was made for them! Chalk one up for the mother!!

              Service and delivery comments:

              I bought this, wanting it for a Valentines day gift, and there was problems with the shipping of the package..But, as soon as I emailed the company & questioned it, they corrected it right away..They sent me the tracking information so I could see when my daughter got it..I was very impressed on the lengths they went to to make it right!
