Danny Kresky is an acclaimed writer/director of romantic comedies that are very popular, especially with women. His female fans muse about how wonderful it would be to be married to a man who creates such romantic scenarios and writes beautiful dialogue. In reality, Danny is a typical husband, bringing none of the romance of his films home to his wife Diana. Diana is frustrated far more than the average wife. After all, Danny's entire reputation is built on creating romance. Diana finally confronts Danny about the problem and he decides to solve it in a highly unorthodox way. Will Danny be able to take some of the magic from the screen and bring it into their marriage? Written by Paul Rothbart

Did You Know?


The Kresky's car, a 1997 Mazda Miata, is actually writer/director Paul Rothbart's car. Originally a Corvette was going to be used but the owner would not allow anyone to drive it except himself. This would severely limit the shots that could be taken. 1st AD Brendan Faulkner suggested that Rothbart use his own car. Rothbart wasn't sure at first, but after seeing the film Looper, which featured Joseph Gordon-Levitt racing around in a vintage Miata, Rothbart thought the car looked great onscreen and decided to use his own in the film.

Cute Movie Short
26 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read the script before production (my first script read, so I'm not really skilled in seeing the final product from a piece of paper) and thought this wasn't going to add up to much. However, this is a truly entertaining short film. The message is clear, succinct, and delivered with wit. It is amazing how a talented director and sharp editing can create a work of art. Paul Rothbart did a terrific job with a short theme and a small budget. I particularly liked the casting choices for the wife and the actor. Don't forget to stay for the out-takes at the end ... it really rounds-out the experience and will make you laugh.

Nice job!
