New Meet the Parents Short Film

Why Watch? Clocking in at just under a minute and a half, this delightful punchline short from Lily Allyn Gordon jokes with the nerves of meeting your serious boyfriend’s mom, complete with a twist fitting for 2013.

A simple idea executed with some sweet, intentional goofiness, it’s a veritable one-woman show with Alexandra Kyle (yes, Roz from Justified) playing the butterfly-stomached Lucy. Although, due credit goes to sharp editing that gives it a silent comedy-style energy.

The ending is definitely satisfying, but the pep talk one-liners are gold.

What Will It Cost? A little over a minute.
