Uncle Franco's Birthday Suit


Sometimes young lovers need an older, eccentric uncle to help them find each other!

Sometimes the straightest line between two points is a circular zigzag!

LOGLINE:  A young man’s relatives are determined to reunite their nephew with his teenage love. To succeed, they must overcome a scheming coworker, and his gold-digging sister.

SUMMARY:  When Magdalena, the teenage love of Paulo, visits New York, his aunt and uncles are determined to bring the pair together again.  But Martin, Paolo’s co-worker, implies Magdalena has forgotten Paolo and is now his, Martin’s, lover.  Not true.  Nor is it true that Martin’s sister, Sarah, is pregnant with Paolo’s twins.  Can the aunt and uncles cut through the lies of these formidable opponents and bring Paolo and Magdalena together?

Utah Film Festival wrote of the script:  "Uncle Franco's Birthday Suit" was a fun read. I bet it will also be a hit romantic comedy movie. The nice thing about it is Lynn Elliott didn't just focus on the main couple Pablo and Magdalena, he instills the value of family and how family always look after each other. The story is very entertaining, hilarious, and full of interesting and effective characters. The antagonists are strong, I sincerely hate them, that is how Lynn Elliott effectively and very well made them, they affect me. And of course, I could never forget Uncle Franco, one of my favorite characters of all time. He is a classic, effortlessly hilarious. This story is highly recommended, good for the heart and a good dose of laughter.

UNCLE FRANCO, with all attention on him tries to explain a critical point:
"Here’s my story.  He go to her room.  He knock on door.  Knock, knock, knock.  He think her in room with him.  But she not her.   She different her.  Meantime, me with her.  Not other her, this her."
