A fun little film

'Madame Priscilla's' is a 10-minute short written and produced by Sahag Gureghian, which depicts the difficulties of dating in a humorous light.

The title refers to a hip and trendy café in L.A. where the locals like to hang out. It's also a small dating community where Madame Priscilla (Elizabeth Perry) provides private information about the men in the café to all her women customers. Which girl wouldn't want to know that the hottie picking up on her is actually a loser with herpes? Madame Priscilla has all the dirt on her male patrons and the women are dying to know them.

Rachel (Erinn Koch) is being pursued by wannabe actor Paul (Ed Mecija). On the next table, reality show contestant Dennis (Dennis Luciani) tries to woo uninterested Katie (Beth Whitney), not knowing that Katie's friend Janice (Mary MacDonald) is hoping he'd ask her out. The women know Madame Priscilla's secret, but the men are oblivious to just how powerful this café is on helping them find a date.

The movie is filled with talented, high-caliber actors who perform at their finest. Two performances worth mentioning are those by Dennis Luciani and Mary MacDonald. If the name Dennis Luciani rings a bell, then you might know him as the 38 year old virgin on the 'Average Joe' reality show, which aired in 2004 on NBC. Luciani spoofs his reality show experience and gets lucky in the café only after mentioning that he won 10 million dollars on a "Survivor"-like reality show, even if he did spend most of the money building an arcade.

Mary MacDonald is absolutely hilarious as a cute and spunky customer who has a crush on him. She also makes a fun cameo in the end, as an old lady employee of Madame Priscilla's, who works in the 'women's bathroom,' finding information on all the men customers.

Also starring Tom Hamilton and Marcee Shang, Madame Priscilla's is a cute, funny, and entertaining no-budget short.
