Amy, a young Georgia woman, is frazzled and exhausted as she endures endless exercise and beauty regimens in a desperate attempt to get ready for a date with new boyfriend Todd, a hot LA guy with a great smile and perfect six-pack abs. Her tortured efforts to impress Todd and measure up to the Hollywood ideal of beauty are interrupted by a breaking news story that says beer guts are the latest fashion accessory for men and an infomercial that sells prosthetic guts to guys who can't grow their own. Amy resents the double standard that demands perfection of women and OKs mediocrity in men. But she is excited for her date with Todd, who she is certain has been working just as hard to look great for her as she has been for him. Until he calls to cancel their date and tells her the gutless reason why. Written by Bri Prooker

Love it or Hate it Film
2 June 2013 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Like any standout, GUT-TO-GO is a love it or hate it film. There probably won't be much in-between because this is not a film that toes the line and plays it safe. Men who are threatened by powerful women such as triple threat Bri Prooker (who writes, produces and stars in this hilarious statement piece) will undoubtedly hate it. Women who are looking for a role model who is not afraid to stand up to Hollywood's ridiculous beauty standards are likely to love it. As for me, a guy not threatened by strength or talent (though it intimidates the hell out of me!) and someone who likes a smart, funny comedy that is not afraid to take a stand, I'm giving this short nine stars. Enough said.
