Cutlass ★★½

Cute short film with a surprisingly impressive cast, but so intensely sentimental that it plays like a commercial for spending money on children. Mercifully short, and would have absolutely worn out its welcome as a 90 minute feature where the stakes are "will she buy a car?".

Kate Hudson's directorial debut, though she shows wisdom beyond her years by casting her real dad Kurt Russell as her character's dad. Kurt looks like the absolute textbook definition of a dad in the 70s flashbacks, from his mustache down to his armchair. His delivery on "That'd be a bummer." may be his best work of the decade.
