This is one of the better unproduced screenplays I've seen on this site (although I only became aware of it a few days ago). The formatting is perfect, at 101 pages it's a good length and the use of lesser known screenplay writing tools such as subordinate slug lines is impressive. The tone worked for the comedy genre and the dialogue flowed well and wasn't on the nose. I'm sure many of these strengths can be attributed to a fair bit of rewriting before showing it to others. An example for others to follow!
