Quoted from Lionsgate
Lionsgate wants to develop a high concept comedy, a movie where the premise can be explained in a single sentence, or better yet, title.



You know you're dealing with a studio when the title is more important than the plot.

Yeah, why don't they just flash 120 titles at us on the screen for our $12.50?

The studio would save a ton of money on actors and we can sit there and go "oh yeah, that's funny, I get it!" over and over again...

I'm tellin' ya, we're getting closer and closer to the movie Mike Judge predicted in Idiocracy:

A movie called Ass that's just a close-up of someone's ass farting for 90 minutes.

Hey Kev, Dogglebe  just wondering what your concepts are on Massify.  I was hoping to give some props to the members on SS and offset some of the obvious padding that other submissions are doing.

cool concept I liked the scene sample although you cheated by going over the 5 page limit   

O and i just checked out Shane.  He's a douche.
