    A young woman from Arlington Heights may be on her way to a big career in film.

    Kylie Condon and her New York University roommate, Stacey Greenberger, are one of three finalists in a "Tonight Show" film contest.

    Using a Flip Cam, contestants had to create a 90 second film using the words "dairy," "sprint" and "remorse."

    The girls' film, called "Welcome Freshman" is about a young man named Benjamin and his overbearing mother.

    "I mean, our parents aren't embarrassing or anything, so I don't know where we got this from," Condon told "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno during an appearance Wednesday's show.

    Chicago Sun-Times film critic Richard Roeper helped critique the films.
