A review of Lawnmower Version 1.4, Tutorialby Bill T on 09/26/2005I'll begin by saying the voice over was excellent. It was well produced and the demeanor suited the storyline.

It was a good idea and could probably still be funny if it was cut down to about 60 seconds. Technically this film is pretty good, the actor... read
