On Set: The Making of 'A Christmas Wedding Tail'

Synopsis: Behind-the-scenes featurette for the holiday film "A Christmas Wedding Tail".
Genre: Short

Isn't Christmas beautiful?

The decorations, the ornaments

and my favorite--

gingerbread! Yum!

My name's Rusty.

And I hope you're in the mood

for a good old-fashioned Christmas tail,

'cause I've got one.

This wasn't just any Christmas.

Yep, that's me-- Rusty Campbell.

No, that-- that's not me.

Over-- move over-- yeah, that's me.

Look at you, Mr. Handsome.

And that beautiful

babe next to me-- that's Cheri.

Watch it, buster.


I'm telling the story here.

Seriously, folks, isn't she the most

beautiful bride you've ever seen?

Your owner's not so bad either.

Do you, Jake, take Susan

to be your lawfully wedded wife,

to have and to hold,

in sickness and in health,

for as long as you both

shall live?

Oops, getting ahead of ourselves here.

If you want to hear

this Christmas wedding tail,

we've got to go all the way back

to the beginning.

? It's Christmas time of year ?

? Everybody swing ?

? Yeah, it's Christmas time

of year again ?

? And the trimming's

on the tree ?

? 'Cause everybody here

loves Christmas ?

? Here we go, let it snow,

ho ho ho ?

? Well, it's Christmas time of year ?

? With the presents

under the tree ?

? Yeah, it's Christmas time

of year again ?

? There's a stocking there for me ?

? Does everybody here

love Christmas? ?

? Yeah, here we go, let it snow,

ho ho ho ?

? Here we go, here we go,

ho ho ho ?

? Here we go, here we go,

ho ho ho ?

? Here we go, here we go,

ho ho ho. ?

It was early October

and Susan had taken me

to the dog park

for some quality bonding time.

Little did I know

my life was about to change forever.

There's got to be something

available, Pat.

There's got to be something

available, Pat.

No, Susan, listen,

you've got to be patient, okay?

There's got to be something.

You hear that?

That's not sleigh bells.

That's the sound of crickets.

Towards the end of the year,

none of the major museums are hiring.

None of them?

Relax. Don't get your bloomers

in a bunch, okay?

A curator with your qualifications

is gonna get offers.

It's just gonna take some time.

Well, I hope so.

Maybe something back East,

let me get out of California


Don't worry, you will.

But in the meantime, do me a favor.

You know how those small towns are--

they suck you in.

And next thing you know you're running

a little coffee shop or something..

Don't worry.

I'm a city girl.

The small town is not for me.

That's when I saw her,

her tail floated through the air

like a cloud.

I just love a woman

with a sense of style.

-- Rusty!

Is everything okay up there, Susan?

Rusty, Rusty.

You go get 'em, Sue.

You go get 'em. All right, all right.

Pat here.

How can I be of service?

You need a job, huh? Well,

you came to the right place, buddy.

I'm going into a tunnel. Oh my gosh.

Oh look, I'm losing you.

Don't touch my fish.

They're poisonous.

- Hey there.

- This is an A and B conversation,

so why don't you C your way

out of it?

My name is Rusty.

I'm Not Interested.

At least tell me your name.

If you don't tell me,

I'm going to have to guess.

Foo-Foo? Pookie? Tawana?

Not even close.

Rusty, got you.

Cheri, I leave you for a minute, and

already you've made some friends here.

Cheri. I loved

the way it rolled off the tongue--

or the way it would have rolled off

the tongue if I could actually speak.

It was love at first sniff.

Everything okay?

Lana, what are you up to?

Oh, it's okay. I think they just

got away from us for a second.

- It's good to see you, Jake.

- Thank you, Reverend. How are you?

- I'm great. Thank you for asking.
