'Rule Number One: Boys are only after one thing!' warns Grace's mother as she gets ready for her first date.

Very different and kind of humorous
9 January 2006 | by (Mid- West) – See all my reviews

I think that perhaps if they would have made this a full length as opposed to the short, it probably could have been better. It is unique, and has some humorous parts. I especially enjoyed the scene with Trent Gill in a tu-tu throwing whipped cream at his girl friend. He is so funny. It's worth watching just to see this! And as usual, Danielle Panabaker is great. She (in my opinion) is going to be the next Julia Roberts. She is very talented. So, if you get the chance to check out this short, it is definitely worth your time. Great concept, well done, talented actors, just wish it would have been full length. But, like I said ; check it out for your self. You won't be disappointed.
