cliches, and bad writing The sort of thing that it mocks is the sort of the thing that you ll recognise if you ve, you know, ever seen a movie in your life Which is where the appreciation comes from, I guess.You don t need to be a writer to enjoy this book If you re a movie lover at all I You can read all my reviews early by following my blog.Man, that was a long synopsis.This book is pretty fun

if you ve, you know, ever seen a movie in your life Which is where the appreciation comes from, I guess.You don t need to be a writer to enjoy this book If you re a movie lover at all I think you ll get enjoyment out of it too Like I said, you ll definitely be able to recognise the tropes that Neill points out.That s not to say that every joke is a winner Plenty of the jokes in here are pretty funny Plentyfall completely flat There are multiple dinosaur jokes Or, you know, the same dinosaur joke multiple times And yes, it s the one in the title And I m sorry, but there does come a point when I reach my boob joke limit Maybe it s because I have boobs, but I don t find endless boob jokes all that funny.But hey, go check this book out if you re at all interested If you write or love movies it has its value But I hope you like boob jokes, is all I m saying.Hey, wait Did I make it through a whole admittedly short review without being sarcastic How novel.Oh wait Damn I put this on my shelf of film reference books because I feel you can learn from this humorous collection of half baked ideas I came to this book having not seen or known about C.W Neill s website in fact, I got it at a library book sale dirt cheap When the guy at the counter said 50 cents, I donated a whole nother 50 cents, because I m generous like that.I found this book to be an especially speedy read some of the script examples are as short as one sentence long There s even illu I put this on my shelf of film reference books because I feel you can learn from this humorous collection of half baked ideas I came to this book having not seen or known about C.W Neill s website in fact, I got it at a library book sale dirt cheap When the guy at the counter said 50 cents, I donated a whole nother 50 cents, because I m generous like that.I found this book to be an especially speedy read some of the script examples are as short as one sentence long There s even illustrations The premise is of Neill trying to come up with some awesome film script ideas and that these are just the beginnings of some that will set off his career The joke, of course, is that they re all truly terrible Neil does a good job representing the cliches of bad screenwriting, and the idiot joy we all have when writing down our dumb ideas And yes, sometimes I do write And then some explosions and stuff happens I dunno in an action line because I can t think of anything What s neat is although this is basically an anthology a bunch of separate, random beginnings to stories there s several throughlines that are fun to see return to the pages again and again Jack Jason Statham is one of them, and I almost want to see that ridiculous action flick come to a silver screen near me Almost And the other major throughline is that of Amy, the ex girlfriend Neill has been jilted by, who shows up in random stories to be destroyed by villains or eaten by dinosaurs.Note Some of these movies do require dinosaurs.It s a fun, quick read, so don t be discouraged by my 3 star review It could have been better But it was a lot of fun to read some of these out loud with a friend You should try it
