The Take Home Final by Robert Gati - Short, Comedy - Even at Princeton University there are slackers, and Gary Klondike is one of the best. Having been on academic probation multiple times, Gary must finish a take home final from one of his bullsh*t Sociology classes, or he faces expulsion. Janet, Gary's girlfriend, sees this moment as the perfect escape clause out of her relationship. She's wanted to dump Gary for a long time, but can't because Gary belongs to Princeton's exclusive Ivy Club, which Janet hopes to join as she is a social climber. It's his goal to finish the final over the weekend, it's her goal to stop him. 31 pages (view the short at: http://blip.tv/file/990380 - pdf, format
Update: This script has been on the boards since July of '07. It has been filmed. Watch it here:
I agree that the beginning was slow, and kind of hard to get into. I think a lot of it had to do with the actor's delivery, too because I found the lines very funny, I think they could have been pulled off better... But then again, they aren't professionals...
I laughed my butt off at the football player/headless statue scene. I loved it! I also found the scene in the gym funny, too. There were other funny scenes too, but those are the ones that stick out in my mind.
Oh, and a behind the scenes look at what happens when you send your food back... Know I never will again.
Congrats on getting it produced
