Why does ANARCHY JOE... remind me of HAPPY HAIRY HARD ON????  I think it's just too blatant of a rip off here, pal.  

I dunno... this and the fact you open the movie up with a D.J. makes me think this movie is really gonna bite the nuts off of a cow.

I'll give it a shot though... I like 80's teen movies, but anything after that... don't even ask.  90's and 00's teen movies are for piss in a cat dish.


Good thoughts~

I have to admit, I truly love this script.  It is actually the first script that I've read from beginning to end.  It gives a bit of relief from the overplayed teen movies that you see today.  As a young actor myself, I can see this truly being made and accepted.

I thought it was pretty good but a bit unpolished.  Definately work on your grammar and spelling.  I've talked to some people in the business and anyone, correct me if I'm wrong, but I hear that words lke "gonna" and "I dunno" are a no no.  But who am I?  Anyhow, there are still plenty of grammar/sentence structure stuff that you can fix up even though we all hate doing it.

rules of grammar go out the window in dialogue. in descriptions "i dunno" or "gonna" are a no, no. But in dialogue anything goes. it can be "ldsfjewrklfsa" as long as the actor playing the role can pronounce it.

1. Clerks
2. Mallrats
3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
4. Napoleon Dynamite
5. American Beauty
6. Spanglish
pretty much any kevin smith flick or movie with Adam Sandler.

Hmmm .... Well when strolling through the comedy section I always wanted to read this but I never came around to it but now I read it and it was good. Reminds me a bit of the OC which for me is a good thing and I loved the characters This script was great just maybe fix it up a bit!

The first time I started reading this, I stopped after a couple of pages because I just wasn't getting into it.

But then I went back later and read the whole thing-- I liked it. I could picture it (although I used a city I'm more familiar with). I could relate to some of the characters, and hanging out at a grocery store? Very familiar scene, I can remember when I've done that a couple years ago.

I guess you could say this reminded me of my old friends.

Beginnings - It's high school all over again. Seriously. (now fixed and cleaned!)

I enjoyed this script. One of the rare comedies that I've read that actually are funny, with decent jokes.

A definate reccomendation to others.

Tried a couple of times to read this, and I haven't given up yet, but have struggled to stay interested.  Lots of driving around and sometimes the dialogue is a bit forced.  For instance, when two characters who are avid Anarchy Joe fans are talking about him, it's sounds like they're trying to sell each other on Anarchy Joe, even though they both know everything about him already.  I know it's listed as a comedy, but I'm not sure the comedy occurs often enough, nor is it in your face enough.  It's a more mild comedy which works if it is complimented with traits of other genres.  I'll give it a chance and finish it to see where you are going with it.
