Manager Lee and Tim are standing in front of the electronic

for his subordinates to show up for work.

       the counter
       opening a can of
Acutally, I wasn't sure what to
make of it. It was terrible. I
would probably rather go watch a
shitty movie like The Economist
before I even think about droppin
some coin to watch Half-beard.
      (not listening
       looking at his
                       NARRATOR (vo)
      (scene pause)
This is Tim. He's one of my
roomates. I liked to think I know
what he's talking about but
sometimes I believe that his
mother just drank too much while
continually punching her self in
stomach but then again I don't

This sexy beast of a man is Lee
Pervert, er, Peavert. He been
running this pathetic sweat shop
since before i was born and he is
probably gonna die here. Look at
those arms! Bleh! I can't tell if
that is just hair or if his father
was a furry lumberjack who raped
sasquatch and then, thbp (fart
noise), Lee was created. I kinda
wanna shave'em, stuff and
mount'em. okay back to the story.


I mean, who the hell thinks up
this garbage? it's suppose to be
an action movie and yet, there is
more action going on in Driving
Mrs. Daisy than this poor excuse
of a bath tub meth piece of crap
for a movie. I'm telling ya, they
should just boot out that
Fernandez director and the studio
should go ahead just Michael Bay
it up.
      (checking his
Right. Totally.

                       LEE (vo)

...and of course I'll get you
totally invited to my guild but
you're gonna want to make sure
that your toon is all spec'd out
cuz these runs are intense. I

night in 3 hours.
      (drinks fanta)
God, this Fanta is f'n fantastic.
Have you seen those commercials? I


                       TIM (cont'd)

head! It's all like
FANTA! FANTA! c'mon on and drink

      (looks up)
About freakin time!
John and Keven coming walking up to electronic department
from the entrance of the store. Both of their shirts are
torn. Kevin has the early stages of a black eye while John
has a cut lip and tissue in his nose. The boss has his hand
at his hip looking irrated and with the clipboard still in
on hand. He begins to point his clipboard at them.
Where in dear sweet baby jeebus'

Kevin is standng up and trying to initiate the star power

really giving a crap about what is going on with song. John
is sitting on the couch lazily playing.

Rene flashes back to a 8 year old girl screaming in his
face, then some dude puking on him in the back of the

as he's trying to take her blood pressure.

showing up?

game? don't you ever get tired of
sitting in front of the tv
mindlessly wasting away?

Rene turns around and points at Alice. then sorta chuckles
to himself
      (rolls her eyes)

kathryn storms off into the kitchen leaving tim chasing
after her while the three left start laughing.

The whole group John, Kevin, Tim, kathryn are standing in a
long for half bear, while Rene and Alice are standing off to
the side since they have had their tickets already.
      (growing in
Oh man! We're never going to get

would hurry up.
John is starring at the back of the head of an old man that
is now next in line to get tickets. John is getting very
angry as the old man is moving exponentially slower.

The ticket lady goes to find the managaer. Rene and alice

in order instead of five.
snack person walks up to the register,
                       SNACK PERSON
What can i get for you folks?
May I have a medium popcorn with
no butter and a large Dr. Pepper.
I'm sorry?
Who the hell eats popcorn with no
butter? At that point you're just
eating stale puffs of nothingness.
um... I don't. They don't even
serve real butter, I mean, c'mon,
it's so over processed not to
mention that it's an artery
clogging death trap.


      (not listening
       looking at the
       snack guy)
I'll take a large popcorn with
extra death trap
John is still standing in line with Kevin and Tim in the
background watch the old man beginning to talk to manager.

Maybe you should go say something
to him
I will.
That doesn't sound like a good

Shut up Tim.
John leaves the line and begins to walk towards to the old

       the old man's arm)
What the hell is the hold up?
                       OLD MAN
The old man sees John and begins to stroke to the ground.
John lets go as everyone around begins to look at the
situation horrified.
      (looks around
I didn't mean to!


John and Tim are sitting next to each other in the waiting
room of the hospital. John is looking stressed out with
Kevin sitting in the sit across form shaking his head with a
slight grin on his face.
I can't believe you hit an old
I didn't hit him!
Poor guy just wanted some tickets
to a movie and you hit him.
      (crossing his arms
       looking down)

      (leans foward)
Seriously. I mean, what kind of
animal does that to another human
In comes the doctor. John walks up to her concerned.
      (patient file in
Well, your grandfather is going to
be fine. Turns out that he had a
minor stroke and with some bed
rest he'll be back to himself in
no time.
oh thank God
      (trying to hand
       file to john)
We just want to keep him over
night for some observation. Just


                       DOCTOR (cont'd)

      (with is hands up)
Well you see we're not his family
Who exactly are you?
                       KEVEN (vo)
      (in the background)
He's the guy who hit him!
      (whips around to
As John is looking at Kevin the grandson of the old and his
wife approach the doctor concerned. Confused begins to talk
to couple about what had happened. Kevin walks up to John.
what the hell is your problem?
Whoa careful, you gonna hit me
      (putting his
       finger on kevin's
You're such a dick
As john puts his puts his kevin pretends to start having a
stroke and falls to ground. meanwhile, behind john the

The grandson grabs john by the shoulder, spins him around
and then knocks john out in one punch. The scene ends with a


The scene begin from the point of John's eye opening up.
Only to find the whole gang at the foot of his bed looking
back at him. Kevin is smiling and slightly bouncing up and
what happened?
hey. are you feeling alright?
      (put off)
I can't believe you hit an old
John's sets his head back on pillow
      (closing his eyes)
I really hate you guys.
The gang walks in the apartment tim carrying John's stuff.
John looks at Rene and Alice.
      (ribbing his head)
So how was the movie?
We didn't get to see it when Kevin
told us that you assaulted that
old guy
      (turns to kevin
       and grabs him)
You son of a bitch!
Laughing at John, Kevin pretends to stroke again and falls
to the ground. turns around to Rene for assistance and
accidently touches him. Rene pretends to stroke and falls to
the ground. Pissed, john jumps on top of the two.

I like the humor, but only the humor. This would be funnier if condensed down and made into a comedy skit at a comedy club. Way too much swearing. It has a lot of potential but you need to fix all the grammar errors. These errors will keep anyone major from taking your script seriously. A lot of small errors. You do get a star and a half, because i laughed out loud once. Keep working on it.

From ive Date 1/13/2010 ****
good good

From Steven Cooper Date 1/12/2010 **
Good first script but maybe a bit too much swearing

From Reed Coverdale Date 1/11/2010 *1/2
not very well developed, and constant swearing just shows you know not what to write about.-

From April Bagley Date 1/8/2010 ****
Good first attempt, but you need to be careful about capitalizing some of the words.
