Kali Rocha is what got me into this mega-sweet short film
25 February 2016 | by Ddey65See all my reviews

How often do you find people who see movies just for the narrator? As rare as that may be, the act of doing just that isn't so original. In this case it's for that delightful brunette Kali Rocha, best known as of this writing for playing the matriarch of the Rooney family on "Liv and Maddie," especially by the tween set.

Judging by the narration, this under 10 minute movie looks more like a pitch reel for studio heads than anything else. The narrator tells the tale of a man (Richard Sommer) who wanted to grow the perfect mustache throughout his life, but once he finally does so, doesn't exactly get the social acceptance he was looking for. When his old friends reject him over it, he tries to get new friends, and they all snub him for their own reasons. Then just as he's about to throw in the towel and shave it off, he meets a girl who likes him for it, played by Amy Smart. They fall in love and get married, but things don't work out as well as the man hoped, and the reasons why play an important role in the movie, which I won't spoil.

Rocha claims at various points in the film that it's a very serious and dramatic story, which couldn't be further from the truth. But honestly, anyone who sees movies like this would never be bothered by such a lie. It would be easier to believe that "Take the Money and Run" and "Zelig" were real documentaries.

The story was pitched to the Tribeca Film Festival by somebody named John Nash, written, directed and co-produced by Jac Schaeffer, and sprinkled like sugar all over YouTube. Almost as unorthodox as it is sweet, and not to be missed.
