Hilarious short film about one crazy night out
1 April 2003 | by (Stony Brook, NY) – See all my reviews

Sadly, this wonderful short film will never see the light of day again, since its broadcast on Showtime in 1990. Besides being the film debut of Will Smith, who has a small part as a T-shirt vendor, "Perfect Date" is a comically resonant story about a guy who gets dumped by his girlfriend. In his mopey state, Steve runs into a girl who is dumped by her boyfriend, of course the two dumpees are perfect for each other, but first they stumble into one disastrous situation after another. It's very reminiscent of such 80s comedies as "Sixteen Candles" and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", and it's nice to see characters who are smart and really talk to each other. I've seen this film several times in re-run on Showtime, but it's probably hard to catch again these days, who knows maybe they'll release it on video to cash in on Will Smith's fame. If they do, it's worth the watch.
