hilarious
10 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When asked to discuss her dating history for someone's college thesis, Fran tells the story of several relationships she has had that failed. Through the use of flashbacks, you get to see all of the nonsense and "dealbreakers" she experienced that caused the demise of each and every one of them. From rude, to childish, to still caught up in the college life, the viewer gets to see Fran's dealbreaker/break-up cinching rationale for getting the hell out of dodge. The climax of the short does not disappoint. It is irreverently and unbelievably funny. I have been talking about it with my friends for days.

The way I got the short film DVD was through Glamour magazine (it was included in the Jan/2006 issue as an insert). Enjoy!!
