INT. LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Sean walks into the frame carrying rollerblades and
collapses on the couch laying down. He picks up the remote,
turns the T.V. on.

Today on 9 news, a protest for
more censorship took place at the
capital today, Parents traveled
for miles to look upon or even
join in for this event.

California theres no way that I
would've missed this!

Sean turns off the TV
                                                            
Sean turns his head and falls asleep.
                                                            
Fade out.
Fade in.

It fades in to Sean looking straight up still on the couch
blinking more than usual(focusing his eyes). He sits
himself up, and looks at his watch.
                                                            
                       SEAN
      (very quickly)
O s*** I'm late for school!
                                                            
When he says shit, a blur goes over his mouth and a loud
bleep stops him. He stops himself and looks around.
                                                            
                       SEAN
      (bleeps again)

rollerblades down the street. It cuts to the school.

From Joe Date 3/19/2007 ****
awesome...i hate people who go too far to be politically correct. great!

From Paul Shannon Date 7/25/2005 *1/2
In todays time, people seem to want to use the liberal/conservative issues to entertain. What this does is cause ill feeling and no entertainment value. Saying one person is responsible for all the woes leaves you mad anymore. Funny concept, way too predictable ending.

From Lance Date 7/21/2005 **
This is a very interesting idea. Usually, I am not very intrigued by films that break into the real world. Monty Python type films can be funny, but that kind of sudosituational comedy needs to be reserved for certain times and has to be in the context of a film that would be extremely funny without the spike (acknowledging aspects of film that are not in the world of the story). You might want to turn this into a battle between adults and students where they want to curse and a parent runs by to stop them. Create a world and make the comedic moments and comments happen within that world, but it isn't nearly as funny when you break out of your world for the sake of a joke.
