How To: Be The Perfect Boyfriend
A girl looking for the perfect boyfriend…This so easily could have been a terrible short to watch. I mean, it’s somewhat hard to write and turn the main character into a likeable enough one, due to its main concept, but luckily this short succeeds quite well at it!
It basically is a cute, fun and harmless little short to watch. The comedy and characters help to make it a both charming and fun one. Nothing more and nothing less than just that, which also means that it’s far from an absolute must-see as well.
The one problem with this short is the fact that it’s nothing more than a short. There is very little room from anything to ever develop in a realistic enough way and the short definitely rushes through things at parts. Yes, it definitely could be true that this one would have worked better as a full length feature instead, though it of course is hard to tell if the film-makers would have been able to turn the story and everything else into something solid and suitable enough for a full length feature. But I would say yes in this case, since the talent definitely seems to be there. There is a pleasant flow to things, despite rushing at times and everything is well timed and executed, with some likeable characters and also solid enough performances.
