I'm guessing the entire script doesn't have to be this argument. As long as the argument is within the script and isn't just tacked on, then I'd think it would fit the challenge.

Sounds pretty good. i might be up for 2 scripts - a piss take and a serious one.

the first thing that popped into my head was aT-Rex chatting to a Triceratops.

Not sure what the go was with that film clip, Phil. Is that from a real movie?

The first film clip Phil had up there was of a pussy.  For obvious reasons, either he or someone else changed it.

Since "DRAMA"  is so vague it can be anything I think, The Exorcist was nominated for best picture "drama" and it is considered a horror, so drama to me is any category as long as it is dramatic it should be ok, comedy, suspense, horror, action, sci fi all fits in drama, so have at 'er is what I think.

Nice try.

"A drama film is a film genre that depends mostly on in-depth development of realistic characters dealing with emotional themes. Dramatic themes such as alcoholism, drug addiction, racial prejudice, religious intolerance, poverty, crime and corruption put the characters in conflict with themselves, others, society and even natural phenomena."

I think I'm going to create a new sub-genre for this one called Melondrama...

I think I've got a pretty decent idea. Even outlined it. That's what working weekends does for ya. There is actually a fair bit of freedom to work with that still meets the genre/theme, I think.

Yeah, the theme kinda screams "comedy".

Oh well, at least he didn't pick "Farting Tournament in a submarine".

Am I the only one who thinks this is actually a pretty decent genre/theme matchup? If anything, the existence of organizations like PETA and the Animal Liberation Front should indicate that there's a lot to be said on the subject. If Phil hadn't posted the Mac & Me clip, I doubt there would've been as many questions regarding the legitimacy of the post. BTW, what a goofy-ass looking movie! I sometimes forget how much silly shit was around in the 80s.

Should be an interesting variety of entries. I do think that drama is a full-fledged genre but I agree with Jordan that it's broad enough for people to bend the rules and write horror and comedies, with or without bullshit arguments. Wouldn't be the first time. So have at it, people!
