Storyline

In a candle-lit restaurant, couples dine. Sarah and Don, on their third date, are melting in each other's gaze. When she goes to powder her nose, a brisk salesman sits down next to Don. He's Phil, selling insurance for a broken heart. Soon Don is actually interested in the terms of the contract: counseling, a cook provided for six months, replacement of any albums lost in event of breakup. There's wardrobe consultation, patented lines to feed your friends so they won't think you blew it, and, to clinch the deal, Phil's company, Mutual Love Life, provides a loaner. But, before Don can sign on the dotted line, Sarah comes back from the ladies' room with something on her mind. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Phil Shucky: I'm sure you're like me and most single guys, you commit a lot of time and energy to a relationship and then, boom, the big breakup happens and you're left holding the bag. Wouldn't it be nice if you had someone to hold the bag for you?
Don: What are you talking about?
Phil Shucky: I'm talking about insurance. My company's been in the business almost seven years exclusively underwriting relationships. Mutual Love Life.

Very Funny
1 September 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny film. Like many shorts, it's more of an extended joke than a movie. But it really works. The concept of romance insurance is pretty funny to begin with, but to take it to such extremes — especially with the smarmy salesman who is all smiles at first — makes me laugh just thinking about it. It's been six years since I last saw this film, but I still chuckle thinking about it.

The punchline is a little predictable, but this is a much more clever film than many full-length comedies made today.

Robert Peters is especially good as the salesman. He does a lot of one-line roles in movies, and has made some pretty good beer commercials too.
