Bottom Line: Jed and Mona pull off something that is nearly impossible in Internet land, they combine sex and comedy without either being too lurid or too prudish. Add to that Mona’s acting chops and Jed’s writing talent and what you end up with is a funny, sexy romp through sketch comedy.
On the strength of such international hits as “The Miracle Beer Diet”, Liv Films– founded by writer/director Jed Gillen and actress/editor Mona Gillen in the summer of 2007– has rapidly become one of the most popular producers of short, scripted entertainment in the world. Recognized for their unique brand of sexy– often politically-incorrect– comedy, Liv Films videos attract approximately 100,000 online viewers each day. With the release of their Brushing Teeth in Undies DVD in 2008, Liv Films has staked its claim as one of the very first Internet sensations to successfully transition to the mainstream.

For a sketch show that comes in at under 4 minutes in length the writing is stellar. It’s fun to watch and once you start watching you want to see more. Jed and Mona know how to play their characters and once you get sucked into their world you won’t want to leave. (Storytelling 4.5)
Solid cuts, convincing acting and appropriately ironic use of effects make this a really well put together show for the low to no budget sketch genre. (Polish 4)
The only thing that would make this better is if they came out with videos more than once a month. (Watchability 5)
