My boyfriend had caught the holiday movie bug, but the result was more like a horror film --
Genre
romance
Characters
Mick Jones; Debbie Martin
Synopsis
Debbie is sick of Mick filming every aspect of their holiday, especially retakes of spontaneous events. It is so unromantic! Heading back, she's too angry to even sit with Mick. She doesn't want to go to Mick's showing, but her friends insist. She arrives late to find no one but Mick—everyone else has laughed and left. The whole film is blank except one shot of Debbie and Mick kissing. Mick remembers what it was to love Debbie. She forgives him.
