Short and Sweet
15 July 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

David Baer's short film Never Date An Actress, running at less than 7 minutes, may not be genius or provocative, but it is certainly good for a laugh. Due to the nature of the picture (it's very short), we have no real plot or character development, but we do follow a caring boyfriend (Scott Coffey) and his shallow, actress girlfriend (Naomi Watts) through half a day in their lives, and in doing so learn why it is one should never date an actress. The film is funny, and luckily it doesn't try to be anything more. Baer actually manages to get more than I expected out of his 6 and half minutes. And it's fantastic to see actors that are not afraid to completely mock themselves: Naomi Watts is delightful as the shallow girlfriend, almost an embodiment of materialism and hypocrisy. Bravo to Baer, Coffey and Watts... in a few minutes they have done what most feature length comedies have failed to do: made me laugh.
