Why, when he could be making Sin City 2, is Robert Rodriguez directing another lame kiddie flick? Here, a bunch of suburban brats find a magical, rainbow-colored wishing rock that creates lots of wacky, CG effects sequences. For no discernible reason, the story is told in a series of out-of-order chapters posing as separate short films. Less imaginative and more indulgent, Shorts is essentially a gaudy, goofy, frenetically assembled home movie featuring Rodriguez' kids and a bunch of booger jokes. 89 minutes PG.
