Howard took a call from Ettamay, the director whose film about passing wind called “The Mating Call,” finished last at the film festival. Ettamay acknowledged she was disappointed with her film’s placement at the festival, but assured Howard she wasn’t mad. Although Howard told Ettamay that he gave her movie nines when he judged it, Robin pointed out many critics are hesitant to give high marks to the first movie played at a festival, which was the slot where Ettanay’s entry was shown last week, because they don’t know what the remaining films will be like. Artie noted he didn’t agree with where Ettamay’s film placed either, adding he thought it was the fourth best movie of the night.
