Dating in Los Angeles is hard, especally when you have a shitty car.

In Bad Cars, witness how two strangers go on a first date with a single problem—they both have crappy cars and neither one of them wants the other to see it.

Equipped with wit, proper timing, and a lot of heart, writer/director Anthony Deptula enthralls the audience to a six-minuter romantic comedy that’s light and easily digestible. Deptula first made his mark from his indie romantic comedy One Too Many Mornings. From there, he channels his brand of seamless storytelling to Bad Cars released under MadAtoms.

Starring Tina Kapousis and Deptula himself, the film treats the audience with charming, yet seemingly awkward characters that build the foundation of the story with imperfect moments and unexpected obstacles.

The characters’ eagerness to hide their rusty cars or cramped apartments greatly reflects on how money/possession affects attraction, especially on a first date. It also captures the demands of a city like Los Angeles to its young citizen, and how people who does not meet these demands compromise to fit in.


Whether you’re on a coffee break or just eager to watch something new, Bad Cars will offer you a fresh, lighthearted drama that’s brimming with visual appeal.
