Many movies wouldn’t be able to withstand that much attention, but this one struck a chord with audiences in a profound way.

teddy bears are for lovers movie

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the nightmare of forgotten exes will never die. In fact, it may come back to stab you in the leg.

And lo and behold, Bonvillain will be turning this great short into a bonafide feature film.
