Requiem for a Honeymoon
25 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Writing music for a television show ought to be a glamorous profession but it seems the songmeisters of yesterday's TV variety shows lived in modest houses with outdated furnishings and crappy appliances. Jeff is one such unlucky composer, but he's in a good mood. He and his wife, Mary, are about to set off on a long-delayed honeymoon. That is, until the phone rings. It seems the diva slated to appear on the show wants a new song and wants it now. No honeymoon until new song is in the can! What's a young musician to do? In the face of this bad news, Jeff is up to smoking the better part of a carton of cigarettes but not much more. Luckily, Jeff's flamboyant guardian angel is loitering on the roof with a bag of nose candy, and Mary's got a fixation with telephones...

Phones, and their place in the interior design of the 50's, are about as close as this short comes to having a point. While Jeff struggles with his new assignment, Mary wanders about the house, wishing for updates to her decor. Every upgrade includes a new phone, although I suspect a phone in the bathroom would be a little weird.

This short is good, if pointless, fun. The songs are catchy, and Mary is quite fetching when she's done up in her evening wear. There's no reason given for why Jeff and Mary went a whole year with no honeymoon. However, given that one of the lines in Mary's wishing song is, "I wish that refrigerator door would close and stay closed," maybe they were waiting for a time when neither of them was down with salmonella.

The MST3k gang give Once Upon a Honeymoon a good working over. This was the short that taught me never to drink water while watching MST3k.
