Apparently I'm not the only one who saw the similarity between the massage scene in this movie and and the one in Living Out Loud. Not that I'm complaining.

Yes, it's a short film, but a sweet one, with great familiar characters and fun new ones. Be sure not to miss Thashana McQuiston's expression in the mid-credits scene.
