A cute little diversion.
13 January 2004 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

This short features a teenage boy and girl getting intimate while the girl's parents are away. The boy forgets to bring any condoms so he uses a couple belonging to the girl's father. He goes out the next day to replace the condoms he used but that specific type is no longer manufactured. The twist at the end is rather amusing. 5/10
