What a oddball comedy romance! There is nothing like this on TMO and I'm glad that I watched it! Not only you captured the old 50s/60s romance comedy with perfection but the storyline seem to flow nicely and it was a good 12 minutes well spent! Such a magical movie and you hit all the right notes, to the slapstick comedy to the use of music and the editing. The subtitles at times were pretty fast but nonetheless, this one (if not THE) the best romantic comedy I seen on TMO! This deserve to watched by more hence why I am doing to nominate this movie as a HOT PICK! Overall, an excellent movie!

5 Stars all the way! Now this is a movie that deserves a Hot Pick.. when there are so many that don't IMO.. This one does.
Excellent work can be seen here. Very well done script which was funny and smooth. Great editing and very easy to follow subs.
Don't let the 12min leingh stop you from seeing this. The time flies on by.
Excellent, Excellent work!

O pleasure! O delight!

A grand and stylish movie that pulls you in, and grabs you through 12 minutes in a second... It has just the right feel, just like they did in the golden days of Hollywood. I was carried by the story and by the way everything just fits - music, sets, costumes, dialogue, story ans scene selection. Works both as comedy and romance.

An excellent classic movie!

I full heartedly loved the feel of this movie. It was quirky, funny & romantic all in one. The music fit it sooo well. Editing was superb and you did very well with set decoration. I had this silly grin on my face during the entire film...now that's...a good movie =)

I know I'm not the first to say this, but "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is only one of the great noir romantic comedies this can be compared to. This is a marvelously convincing and engaging glimpse into cinematic history. Obviously the MGMkid has an excellent grasp of the genre and a love of this kind of movie. It shows splendidly in the timimg, music and script of this delightful film.

in a word, magiacal...in another word, classic. and i dont even like romantic comedies...but as a film student i can appreciate the aesthetic you were goin for and i think you nailed it. the great editing didn't hurt either. i wish my film professor could check this out. all i can bicker about is the subtitles went a bit fast, but i know how it is when you have only so much space to work with.

excellent job.

I Love this movie! It has all the best parts of a classic 1960's Romantic Comedy. You managed to capture the zany yet whimsical feel of that genre. Move over Sandra Dee! I would love to see a voiceover recut.

Hey, sorry it took me so long to get to this film! I really enjoyed it, a great romance/comendey. Really, the only way you could improve this film is to add VOs.

Very good flick! Great editing and production, it flowed very well. I'm a bit disappointed that there were no voiceovers (it would have really brought this movie to life), but I think you did a great job. The characters were very life-like, and that made the movie, I think. Nice work, kid!

Well drawn and exucuted. Some great story pacing and use of music, those 12 minutes fly by when you watch this. And I like that you can tell whats going on, without having to go back and re-look the parts you missed. The dress-set, characters, are great and this is a very entertining movie. And one of the best comedy/romance's on the site. A very nice mix of characters, and I even laughed a couple of times... This could be on T.V. it is 12 minutes.

Classic re-creation of the whole Generic 60's romance film. Didn't even need voice overs, you made a perfect movie just the way it is! Absolutely hilarious and off the wall! Another movie of your's that I have loved, your studio has been bookmarked and look forward to the rest of your work!

Extremly well made, scripted etc. But also very formulaic. The thing is plenty of these types of movie's have been released by 'real' movie studios and I think these types of films is one area where TMO cannot beat a 'real' movie. It may just be personnel opion but I don't see alot of point in making these types of films on TMO when soo many orginal alleyways are open to you but obviously alot of other people disagree.

Oooh...this was so close to a five, but my finger is hovering over the 4 star option...maybe I'll write my review first before deciding...

This was very well paced. A little long perhaps, but after a while the viewer is left with a desire to see it through to the end. There was excellent use of scenery and sets even between the main scenes, and it was refreshing to see some of the classic comedy modes put to good use here...they felt like they belonged as opposed to just being thrown in. The same can be said for the music which changed style at appropriatte moments.

Story was good in a nice light hearted way. I particularly enjoyed the rivalry displayed by the secretary.

There was a moment in the middle where I think a change in costume was forgotten, and this felt more romance than comedy orientated...sod it, It's too close to 5 to quibble about it, and obviously superior to other films I have seen, so 5 it is. Well done :)

Very reminscent of those old Doris Day movies from the late 1950's or early 60's. you can just imagine Cary Grant or Rock Hudson in the male lead role. This is a very movie but some of the slapstick elements didn't quite work for me but the growing sense of romance between the two main protagonists was done extremely well. You always knew that they were going to get together in the end but isn't that the point of these kind of romance movies. Good, old fashioned innocent fun.

Others have already alluded to this but it bears repeating. Based on the fact that your name is the MGM kid and that this movie is cleary a very well made take off of an MGM classic. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you have more film experience than the average TMO gamer. If i'm wrong so be it.

Anyway, this is THE MOST COMPLETE TMO movie out there. I don't know why it's not a HOT PICK. Your use of props and sets alone has me rethinking my approach to making my movies, not to mention the well scripted and paced story. I will be PM'ing you in the near future for some tips on movie making. And I can honestly say I have never said that after watching ANYBODY elses movie, well done.

As a matter of fact I was going to watch and review a couple more movies before I turned in but I'm pretty sure none of them will be as good so I'm calling it a night.

This is a very well made film. I am not one for romantic movies, but this one kept me interested throughout the entire movie. Well done. The sets were dress very well and the subititles were on the screen for just the right length of time. There were a couple spelling errors, but not enough to hurt the movie. Congrats on a superb film.

Wow, this is excellent ! You can't get more Hollywood then this. Great genre movie, very funny, consistent, even slapstick at times. Fantastic use of scenes. It didn't need to be this long, imho, but the length serves the mood and that is all important. Characters are clear, defined and recognizable. Good story. Massive amount of work went into this. And a fantastic poster too.

Concept - 9 - Excellent example of the genre, excellent script.
Direction - 7 - I have no problems with the length, but I thought the pacing was off. The first office scene dragged a little with the two women talking. Also the climax/turning-point doesn't occur until almost the end of the movie, which meant that the final few scenes felt rushed.
Production - 9 - Loved the set dressing on the park.
Character - 9 - All the main characters were portrayed well, and they were interesting enough to want to know how it would all work out at the end.

Overall, I thought the movie was an excellent example of the romantic comedy, and well produced throughout. All the best for the future.

Captures the essence of 60�??s movies quite well. The fashion, colors, the sentiment, and the humor. Nice greenery well used throughout adds charm. Might be a little bit long for what the movie is. Nevertheless, a delight.

Ok...firstly, I hate this genre...secondly, this is the most riveted I've been to any movie on TMO! This is a wet wednesday afternoon movie starring someone I've never heard of...perfectly recreated in every detail...and I mean that in the nicest possible way!

The story, editing, characters, music and use of props and backdrops, right down to the creation of central park (I kid you not) were all just...amazing!

Even if like me, you don't like the comedy/romance genre, I strongly urge everybody to see this purely because it's a movie making masterclass.
Full marks.

Extremly well made movie. Setdesign as well as charactisation really were astonishing.
The script were well thought through, and you executed it very well indeed.

I have some problems with feel good movies, which is all about a long story, and then ends just the way one would predict, so that together with a part in the middle of the movie, which felt just a tad slow knocks a star off.

All in all a great creation, though not entierly my cup of tea.

Generic Value: 8/10 I'm going to assume you meant to upload this as Romance, because thats what I'm marking it for
Plot: 9/10 Very Very good storyline!
Dialouge: 8/10 Subtitles moved a little fast in some places, but still above average.
Editing: 8/10 Excellent editing! Clearly took my mind away from "A The Movies' Movie" and to "A Real Movie!"
Wow Factor: 8/10 I never thought a romance movie could be like this. And, it was subtitled... Wow.. Very much like New York.

Total Points: 41/50
Stars: 4.1/5

Bonus Points: .4/5
Very good prop decoration! It kept me interested through the whole piece, despite it being 12 minutes, wich is a very good accomplishment.

Total Star: 4.5/5>>>>>>>5 stars

A touching romantic comedy with a true New York (or other big city) feel - which is surprising, given the lack of voice overs! I was going to give it 4 stars because the music didn't always match the scene, but then at other times it was perfect and just what the film needed! Goes to show that a great story is what makes a great film!

a classic movie ...

Originality - 5 - it was essentially the same as many many rom/coms from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's .... but it was still an interesting idea for TMO! :)
Plot/Story - 9 - very well worked storyline, could have done with more twists and turns but it was very very well written!
Dialogue - 7 - the subs were good, however i did get confsed as to who was speaking at some points and also some of the subs went by too quickly in places.
Editing - 7 - very well edited, but the sub speed in places brought this down.
"wow factor" - 8 - I liked it it was good to see a nice and happy movie.

Overall - 36 - 4* - A great movie you have here well done! :)

Wow. An incredible homage to classic Hollywood cinema, complete with beautiful stars, eye-popping color, and comedy ripe with wide-eyed innocence. This is what the 'Romance' category was made for. Great work.

Posted on March 6, 2006
- Apocryphon

Very good capture of the spirit of Doris Day and Rock Hudson, original style for TMO movies and made to look fresh by simple but effective use of props.
Slightly tighter editing and some witty dialogue around the middle scenes would have been good, and the period seemed a little unstable judging by some hairstyles, cars and clothes.
12 mins long and it breezed by with sunshine and smiles.
Good movie.

Carried a very authentic, genre feel which was accented perfectly by the story development and timing. Starmaker was exploited as was full set dressing, giving that added a life missing from many films in hollyweird today!

That was such a shocker at the end! It seemed almost unpredictable. I loved this movie! The only little problem is that, right around like 3 or 4 minutes into the movie, there was a clothes switch. But, everything else, it's just indescribable. This certainly earns a 5 star
