Charm but far too broad and overlong
23 May 2017 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

An aspiring actor tries to balance auditions with a newborn baby and the resulting sleep-depravation. There is a certain charm to this short film which does rather carry it across the (too-long) running time. The lead actor is a nice guy and plays that well, and generally the film produces enough odd laughs to make it work. On the other hand though, it is too long and too much of it is overly broad in its construction. There isn't a totally honest base to the film, and I never bought the situation – the baby felt like a prop, and the lack of sleep felt like a device, rather than being something that felt real (I have a toddler, so this stage of life is fresh enough to me to know when it seems superficially presented).

The lead actor is good, the overall production has a light touch, and there is plenty that engages on some level (albeit helped by that light touch and charm) but it doesn't have the sharpness, honesty, or strong humor that it needed to hit home more effectively. It is still 'nice', but almost 20 minutes is a lot of time for something that is only 'nice'.
