This one is not starting out very good for me. Too talky, too crass, and the jokes aren't landing for me.

few things...

first the name "The Journey" change it, sounds like a teenage girl movie with Hannah Montana traveling cross country to find her lost guitar.

112 pages, too long. Shoot for 95-100

First page- don't forget FADE IN:

Also in your slug you don't need a dash after INT. just INT. A RANDOM HOUSE... also change that. Ditch the A and give me a little more description of this house. RANDOM is just too vague.

Also page 1..

ditch the ings... "A shower running in the background." NO RUNNING. It runs


again, bad slug. Also ditch "Heather enters the bathroom" -- cause we know that, from the slug.

Also the transition from the bathroom to cliffs house needs something cause I just don't get whats happening here. try not to end a scene with dialogue.

I imagine these types of mistakes go on for the entire movie but don't let negative reviews deter you. Keep learning, take classes if you can. read books like "Save the Cat" also "The Screenwriters Bible" is a tremendous resource I use all the time.

good luck

To start you out:

Pg 1. Can someone be “glowing” and also “cold and emotionless?”

“way TOO drunk to drive”

“cause YOU’RE getting married…”

Pg. 2. Not sure I’m really buying the whole shower thing… She doesn’t know the girl, just woke up, and is immediately ready to shower with her?

Pg. 3 “He gives ONE more sigh…”

“I am EXCITED to be…”

Is he really saying “OMG?” or is he saying “Oh my god?” And “STFU?” I’ve never heard anyone say that in coversation.

Pg. 4. “Where was I? Oh yeah! Heather…”

“Old gothic cathedral with A huge…”

Huh.  This is posted in the "comedy" section.  I thought at some point I would actually, y'know, laugh.

Sorry.  This screenplay just wasn't doin' it for me.  Interesting premise, just wrongly executed.  I was a bit distracted by the unfunny lowbrow jokes, dialogue, and the "text speak" within the first ten pages to actually see the story here.  It just doesn't flow for me.

Also, I noticed you "alert the reader" that a time-lapse of two weeks past between the wedding and when the main story picks up.  But you don't really alert the viewer.
