Storyline

Bradley Miller gets a final chance for excitement in his otherwise boring high school career when Stefanie, the hottest girl in school, auctions herself off as a date to the Prom. He wins the bidding by promising her the pink Ralph Lauren dress Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the Oscars. But what Brad didn't count on was the dress's $10,000 price tag or that Stefanie's parents are World Champion Body-Builders who will crush him if he doesn't make their princess happy. Brad's best friend, Angela, has a plan to get the money that involves pawning Brad's Mom's prizewinning Pomeranian dog to buy a vintage low rider to sell to a Japanese businessman in order to buy the dress, unpawn the dog, get to the Prom and not get killed. But Brad's Mom is on her way home, Stefanie's parents are waiting for him, the low-riding gangster he had to cut out of the deal is after him, and to top it all off, Brad's beginning to think he's asked the wrong girl to the Prom.

A funny thing happened on the way to the prom...
11 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

What a knock-out! I caught this as a student short film festival, but you'd never know it's a student work-- It's polished, stylish, and VERY FUNNY.

Low riders, shady pawnbrokers, domesticated German bodybuilders, a prize Pomeranian, and a $10,000 prom dress all collide in CANDY PAINT, an auspicious debut by writer-director Andrew Waller.

I've seen enough student shorts to know that generally their hearts are in the right place, but everything else gets in the way-- NOT THIS TIME. On top of the stellar cast he somehow pulled together, Waller demonstrates a keen aptitude for comic timing and story sense. Combine that with jazzy cinematography, on-the-money editing, and slick production values-- Waller is one of his generation of student filmmakers who have pushed the bar so high it's sometimes hard to tell what's Hollywood and what's Figueroa.

If this short film is any indication, he has a promising career awaiting him in Hollywood. Whatcha got for us next, Mr. Waller?
