The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: Trevor Duke, J.D. Achille, Randy Veraguas
A man wants to date again only to discover that he needs a résumé and cover letter in order to do so.
'Undatement Center' tells the story of jack, a young man looking to get back into the dating scene. It has been 12 long years since his last serious relationship and he feels the time is right now to jump back in. The problem is times have changed and so has dating. Jack now needs to go through a lot of red tape at the "Undatement Center" before he can even be screened by any women. Jack of course isn't too happy about all the new arrangements and regulations but there is one way Jack can fix his dilemma, fork up more money and take his seat on the opposite side of the table. But once he gets there he starts to become the person he was mad about in the first place. But all of it might just change when a beautiful young lady approaches his table.
First off I would like to say I really enjoyed this 9 minute short Film from Writer/Director, Chris Esper. I have had the pleasure of reviewing most of Esper's films and one thing I continue to notice is how much his writing improves with each film. He has hit top form with 'Undatement Center,' a funny, smart and original film that grabs your attention right from the start. You instantly care about Jack and you root for him.
Another thing that made the film so good was the cast, Trevor Duke is fantastic as Jack. He owns the role and he is very convincing. J.D. Achille is also great as Lindsey, the girl who just might be the game changer for jack. The rest of the cast did a great job as well in the film
Production wise the film looks and sounds terrific and Esper's direction is flawless. He is really peaking as a film maker and I cannot wait to see what he does next.
'Undatement Center' is not only funny, its smart and clever as well. I recommend liking Director, Esper's Facebook page HERE to find out when and where you can see 'Undatement Center.' I really enjoyed everything about this fun Short Film, if I had one complaint it would be that it wasn't long enough. I was left wanting more but that is a good thing.
