| Nice short comedy
All we hear from the mother character is how wonderful "Oscar" was and how much she regrets not marrying him. Well as Homer's life seems to fail expectations, "Oscar" returns but he is far from the perfect man that mom thinks he is. A great little short movie with the message that people rarely live up to the "perfect" memories you have of them.

While all of this is going on there is the often used sub-plot of young love in which the mother doesn't support her daughters choice of suitor. The daughter is in love with a low level co-worker of the father. The happy couple must convince the mother that they are right for each other and that the young man is able to make a success of himself someday.

Throw in a robbery, an old maid aunt who likes to stick her nose in everyones business and we have an original story that nicely comes together at the end.
