With the Oscars just around the corner, it's time to look back. The Appointments of Dennis Jennings won the Oscar for Best Short Film in 1989 and was basically a comedy vehicle for the irreverent comic Steven Wright. As such, it comes across a bit like one long comedy sketch. The story is limited but Wright, playing his neurotic alter ego, begins to visit a peculiar psychiatrist, played by Rowan Atkinson. Not only is the quack unhelpful, he also shares Jennings' problems with friends and takes a fancy to his girlfriend.
