This is the story of a family that plans to enjoy a vacation together, but one youngster stays behind, left to his own devices....
No, not Home Alone. This is a different story.
Our protagonist is a teenager, eager to leave behind his childish ways, and enjoy the independence of adulthood while his vacationing parents....
No, this isn't Risky Business. It's nothing like that.
Back to our story, the carefree life soon proves to be an empty existence. Soon, the realities of the world present lessons of responsibility and....
No, not Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. Seriously? Do you think I'd spend all this time setting up that movie?
Look, all of those movies, quality aside, had things happen. Burglars. Call girls. Dead babysitters. Our short is about how nothing happens. This dweeb basically sits at home and eats beans, and then he runs out of beans. The life lesson is that your family keeps you from getting bored and hungry.
So, the next time you find yourself tempted to take your loved ones for granted, remember: Life without family is an empty bean can.
Also, skip Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. Really, it's one joke, and it's in the title.
