Plot

Melvin gives dating advice to his three-year-old son. He teaches him to dress well, act with confidence and spend time with the right crowd. The results are disastrous. And then Melvin meets Mary, an attractive single mother, and his womanising skills are put to the test.

Festival Screenings

Festival screenings include the Arizona International Film Festival, the Asiana International Short Film Festival (South Korea), the Boston International Film Festival, the Cambridge Film Festival, the Canada International Film Festival, Clint Eastwood's Carmel Art and Film Festival, Mike Leigh's Cornwall Film Festival, the Dungog Film Festival (Australia), the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, the Humboldt Film Festival, the Indianapolis International Film Festival, the Melbourne Underground Film Festival, the Mill Valley Film Festival, the Montreal World Film Festival, and the Long Island International Film Expo (New York), where it screened on Opening Night.

Reception

Reviewing the film on Apocalypse Later at the Filmstock Film Festival, Hal C. F. Astell wrote "It's obvious that Burleigh Smith dreams of being Woody Allen and he's clearly doing much better than most wannabes ... He's great at making a mild idiot out of himself without ever losing believability. This is a wonderful little short on many fronts."
