Storyline

Kevin borrows his best friend Julian's mobile phone in order to call a girl named Amanda that he recently met. But when he dials, he realizes that the phone recognizes the number and already has Amanda's name with it, obviously meaning that Julian knows Amanda. Kevin makes a date with Amanda, but then learns that Julian actually dated and had sex with Amanda, which makes him feel very insecure about the date. The situation results in a number of phone calls with awkward and funny conversations between the three persons, bringing up mixed feelings between Amanda and Julian about their previous relationship.

A game of boy/girl telephone tag.
31 January 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

If you're aware of the British situation comedy called Coupling, from 2000, then you have a pretty good idea of what this short film is about. Two guys, flatmates, are on screen. One asks the other to use his cell phone. He takes the phone and begins to agonize about calling a girl whose number he got at a party the other night. He finally does but that sets off a series of call backs as the three (the two guys and the girl) try to sort out their relationship to each other. It's very modern and clever with a lot of talk about how men and women interrelate. It's typical English humor, with misunderstandings and cruel laughs. It's certainly worth the approximately 15 minutes it's on screen, but to go on much longer would be wearing.
