The Good Things is a 2001 short film which received Best Short Film at the 2002 Deauville Film Festival.

Synopsis

Wil Wheaton portrays Zach Means, a frustrated Kansas tollbooth worker whose friend has invited him to take a round-the-world cruise with him. While desiring to take him up on this offer, Zach is hesitant to leave behind his familiar surroundings to enter the great unknown. The film focuses on a day in Means' life at the Matfield Green tollbooth, an isolated exit miles away from any sizable settlements, where Means spends much of his time hitting golf balls while waiting for the occasional driver to pass through his station. During the course of the day, Zach learns that his childhood sweetheart, Christina, will be marrying another friend of his. One of the drivers passing through the booth (who knows Zach) asks him why he doesn't take his sailor friend up on his offer, and when this man returns later to find Zach gone, he assumes that Zach has finally decided to go for it—until he encounters a road crew a few miles down a desolate stretch of highway, with Zach as the signman.

Emily Price is a single mother: she got pregnant in high school and was abandoned by the father before her son, Tim, was born. She and Tim live with her mother, who is both protective and disparaging, and tends to overlook her daughter in favor of her grandson. She is trying to become a court reporter, but freezes up every time she takes the test. Joe comes into their lives when he is sent out to do a residency check by the school: Emily and Tim have been lying about where they live so he can go to a better school. The price for Tim is loneliness: he can't tell anyone where he lives. Joe, who is an aspiring novelist and an inventor of gadgets, decides not to report them and strikes up an unlikely friendship with Tim that gradually escalates to include Emily as well. Previous romantic entanglements - for Emily, the withholding Jim; for Joe, the beautiful but self-absorbed Carrie - intervene while Emily gains courage and independence and Joe comes to understand where his real talents lie.

Alan Walters (Christian Campbell) and his mother, Vicky (Mary Page Keller), live next door to the Thomases, George (Richard Karn), a widower and his daughters, JJ (Lisa Jakub) and Delia (Cecilley Carroll). Alan enters both families in a contest sponsored by Barrett's Natural Soda. Ernie Barrett comes to live with them at the Walters house for a week, to find out if they are the perfect family, and brings Marco (Von Flores), a director and an FBI agent, to record it. To begin with, as all of their kids are close friends, Vicky and George are dysfunctional neighbors towards each other who are constantly at each other's throats over certain issues like a hedge offer that George has committed himself to, which however includes even trimming her hedges. So, with their poor relationship while the opposite between their kids, and due to all the people they have to cover for in numerous ways, problems pile up as the two families pretend to be one, and JJ and Alan try to dump Vicky's boyfriend, Bob Blanford (John Lefebvre). The situation gets even more complicated by the arrival and meddling of fake FBI agents Sloan and Malone (Ric Reid and Peter Keleghan). Add a very nosy neighbor named Eve Scrimmer (Nada Despotovich), who planned to tell Ernie Barrett they aren't really a family at all, but fails, and George's boss, Amanda Holt (Lori Hallier), who when convinced the truth that George is single, and in order to stay in his book business, he has to try to keep the difficult situation covered up from also her. Alan decides to use a dating service to hook up Bob with Eve. During Ernie's stay with the family, they have a fine time at the beach, and that along with barrels of laughs involving the parent's night out at a classy restaurant called Gillian's, and an open mike night at the Beef & Beer. At open mike, George gets stage fright until Alan comes up on stage and grabs an electric guitar. George and Alan sing You Really Got Me. After all is over at the tail end of Ernie's stay, a lot of pressure builds up about how they are going to get through the contest without fail, let alone avoid getting arrested by whom they assumed is the FBI. George's boss, Amanda, just in time catches him with his pants down in the situation, where he has to give her his covered up lie, even because of the situation being in front of Ernie. George has to make a lie about her to Ernie, to avoid the embarrassment. Just in time, also Vicky's boyfriend, Bob, and Eve show up to intensify the situation, ending with them falling for each other. Just as Ernie dubs them the winners of the contest, the whole clan comes clean, blowing the whole cover to Ernie, who gets upset thinking he has to start all over again, because of how he now knows that they are not a real family. But just as he frustrates on that, he sees George and Vicky kissing, which convinces him that they finally have made up and are willing to make it work. That leads to a wedding of George and Vicky truly being married in the next and final shot, with Ernie and Marco there.

The award-winning film, loosely based on Barrie's work, presents the characters with a twist. It features Peter Pan as an older, androgynous teen, whereas the fairy Tinker Bell is a drugged and burnt out girl, the Lost Boys are hot guys and pot heads, the Darling children are adopted, Wendy Darling is black, Captain Hook is a gay leather man and Tiger Lily is a transvestite. The events take place in Neverland which is an amusement park in the film, rather than the imaginary island.
