Storyline

This mock 1950s-styled educational film chronicles a phase in the life a school aged boy, Billy, whose thoughts turn to what he wants to be when he grows up, as career day is approaching at school. Not knowing what he wants to do, he wishes he had it as easy as his sister, who only has to attract a man to become his wife. Billy has as role models his father, mother, and neighbor Betty Henderson whose double entendre activities demonstrate that Billy can be and do whatever and whoever he wants when he grows up.

Quite a funny, high-quality short.
7 March 2005 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to catch this short-film at this year's Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, CA. Among the other 10 films, it ranked easily in the top 3. The film is a black-and-white, 50s-style film, which parodies those old "Jimmy Goes to School" videos. The narrator of the film is dead on. Too great.

And it was great to see Alex Borstein as Jimmy's mother's friend.

The entire short is filled with sexual innuendos which will either crack you up, offend you, or go right over your head. The audience I watched with seems to go with the first response. The crowd was roaring from beginning to end.

If you ever get a chance to see Billy's Dad is a Fudgepacker, I'd recommend it whole-heartedly.
