    Good work. You accomplished your assignment, but you didn't make a film that should be considered for competition. That being said, the film works on its own terms despite the limitations. You told the story. I thought that the technical aspects of the film were fine, And I'm looking forward to your next entry.

    Everything seems right about this film, yet for some reason it isn't as funny or as endearing as it could be. The plot is good, actors appealing, and the script, though literal, is funny. I think SHE LOVES ME, SHE LOVES ME NOT labors too hard. Maybe a lighter touch by all involved would work better.

    A review of Janie and Bear

    I don't know much about animation, but it appeared to me that this was very well done. The film looks great. I only wish we could've had a little more of Bear being ill-treated. This way, Janie deserves the revenge exacted on her. Right now, her death is shocking and horrible, but you don't really feel for her or bear. Great work, though.
