I don't think you change a thing. You got dialogue that literally pop off the page aimed at shopping mall people.

I'd like to see Jim from "The Office" in the lead, the hot red head from "Starship Troopers" as the wife and Robert Loggia as the wise old mentor guy.

I couldn't handle that. This guy needs to be pathetic, but in a loveable want to root for him way. It's got to be Aaron Paul.

The Quarterback for UNLV is Damon Wayans Jr. as an homage to The Last Boyscout.

agree on damon wayans jr. aaron paul might be too recognizable at this point as jesse the body pink man. if we want to skew older we can get the guy from friday night lights, coach taylor. goddamn i like that guy.

What ****ing movie are you talking about. We have a wife, a whore, two babies, a yakuza and gambler and a black quarterback.

To any guests to this site.

In the following pages there will be a few posters that ramble on (in many posts) about their own alleged screenplays.

If you don't want to read those ramblings, this site has a great function where you can place certain posters on ignore status so you can't see their posts. I don't think guests can do that until they sign up to the site. So if you want to ignore these posters just sign up to the site. After you do that and get an alias name, just click on your alias name at the very top of any page. It will then show you several settings. Just click on the "manage Ignore pref" tab. From there you can manage your ignore settings by typing in the name of the person whose posts you don't want to see anymore,

I currently have 5 people on ignore so I can't see their posts. It's a great function to tune out trolls and those that are annoying.

and at least one montage with "The boys are back in town" playing in the background when things start to heat up at the tables for the hero.

Did you know that if the post gets quotes, you're going to see it?
there were no special effects, no special effects.

GOLD!!!

I LOVE the part where the church lady only puts in 50 cents yet scowls at the guy for putting in a $5 chip. LOL judging church ladies AMIRITE??

It is also funny how you call her out for being a hypocrite as she shushed Brad and Karen yet she feels it is fine to talk to her husband and Brad!!!

THIS MAY BE THE BEST WORK OF ART! I know something good when I see it...I see a lot of things in this world....and this Gerry is going to be AMAZING!!!

I...want to remind people that “Vegas Knights” was written mostly for mainstream mall-going America

Hi! I'm mainstream mall-going America, and I'd like to weigh in. I like where you're going here, and I'd like to see you punch up some of the details. Specifically, can you speak to costuming? What kind of t-shirt will our hero be wearing?

The above is my best decision in a while.

Hey, thanks a lot...

Actually I originally had Brad saying this:

CHURCH LADY
I can't believe you put that gambling chip in
the basket.

BRAD
I can't believe you only gave God a few
quarters.

But then I thought that although it's a good comeback, it's a little too snide a remark for Brad's character.

Well, the hero is basically level headed; on the other hand he doesn't take any crap from anyone. His best friend though is more of the wild one.

I really haven't thought much about what they'd be wearing yet. Brad and his friend are both around 26.

Well in that case, get Matt Damon for the lead and Edward Norton for his best friend.

I'll field this one. Our hero will be wearing a plain white tee to make him accessible to the audience but that white tee will retail for 3000 dollars so he will still look good.

Doyle, our thick cocked steipper friend will be wearing a an American flag tank top to show off that killer body and appeal to the patriot in us all.

No cargo shorts in this film. In my universe they don't exist.
