    Enjoyed the punch line - juvenile though it was. The rest was poor.

    Opening scene - no effort made to light the subject.
    Similar problems for the bulk of the shots of the two of you looking down at the fiver. <ake sure your subject is exposed enough - even if this means overexposing the background.

    Bad coninuity with the fiver. We see the body first with his left hand palm up - then we see it palm down on the fiver.
    The jump from the two of you facing left to the view of you facing right (and back again) needs a cut away in between. The line of action is between the nearest person to the camera and what they're looking at. Without a cutaway or a neutral shot (head on) you're crossing the line.
