Storyline

A young man picks his girlfriend up at her family home and meets her parents. The normal dialog occurs. However, what everyone it thinking occurs as voice-overs and it is hilarious. They all think exactly what you would expect. 40 years later I think of the film often and have lived both sides of the hidden dialog. Nominated for an Academy Award for best short, the film is well worth watching......If you can find it. I have been looking for years to buy a copy or find it in any form online.

Very funny short film about saying one thing and thinking another
29 April 2005 | by psokolowskiSee all my reviews

I have seen this film in High School in the 70s and thought it was hilarious. At least it was to my teenage mind back then. Have not seen it since, so do not know if it has stood the test of time, but suspect it has. Interesting to find out Robert Picardo, the Doctor from Star Trek Voyager was one of the main characters. Must have been one of his first projects. This film is really an exploration of people's attitudes and bias towards social norms. We hear the characters giving standard replies to situations while a voice is dubbed over with their thoughts. These "thoughts" range from bizarre to profound, and are always funny, because you were probably thinking the same thing too.
