Bad Parenting (2013)
14min · Short, Action, Comedy · 1 January 2013
Kevin and Stew take to the woods for a fishing trip, but Kevin must bring along his baby girl. Kevin's not the most savvy Dad; his parenting skills are severely lacking. Baby Cindy rides along in a wicker basket and is left in the car while the boys sit on the dock, drink beer and fish. Lurking nearby, having completed some nefarious business in their canoe, are two hillbillies - Bert and Grover. They spy the fishermen and, after partaking in a 'Deliverance'-inspired harmonica duel from dock to canoe, creep up on the campground to see what Kevin and Stew might have left for the taking. They discover Cindy and, in a plot twist leading to hilarious mayhem, decide that they would make better parents than the obviously inept Kevin. An action-comedy short film that never lets up, with a surprise ending. Who will prevail? What will happen to Cindy?
