Not only is it possible to write a great screenplay in 10 days or less, but spending too much time on a script is actually one of the worst mistakes a screenwriter can make! It can lead to boring, dull, and unoriginal scripts.
Stop wasting so much time and energy trying to write your next screenplay. Simply follow this program and in as little as 10 days, you’ll finish the screenplay that could just launch your screenwriting career!
THE 10-DAY SCREENPLAY system works like this:
STEP 1: THE 10-DAY SCREENPLAY shows you how to evaluate your initial idea using the five requirements of every great movie idea. Is your idea unique? Is it big enough? Will it make for a compelling two-hour movie? What can be done to make your idea bigger and better?
STEP 2: THE 10-DAY SCREENPLAY system forces you to flesh out your characters. Contrary to anything you may have heard, great characters make great movies. You need to really know your characters and let THEM dictate your plot, NOT the other way around. Amateur screenwriters come up with a plot and then plug in forced characters to play it out. This is a huge mistake and youll never succeed this way!
STEP 3: Once you have your idea and your characters, its time to write your script following THE 10-DAY SCREENPLAY course. Each day of the course includes an important lesson on what your story objective should be for that day along with a manageable writing assignment. If you simply follow this course, at the end of the 10 days, you will have a finished script!
To make this process easy to understand, THE 10-DAY SCREENPLAY breaks down six blockbuster movies along the way – ROCKY, DIE HARD, HOME ALONE, THERES SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, SCREAM, and BRIDESMAIDS. You’ll see how our plot and character techniques worked in each movie and how they can be applied to your screenplay.
Its time to stop dreaming and start writing! This book will show you the way.

Review: 'There's Something About Mary,' and it's disgusting
Why bother to list the myriad offenses given by "There's Something About Mary," the proudly obnoxious new film by Peter and Bobby Farrelly, when it's easier -- definitely much too easy -- to enjoy them? In the raunchy wake of "Dumb and Dumber" and "Kingpin," the Farrelly brothers have made a romantic comedy that's a hoot in every sense, worth a smidgen of disapproval and a whole lot of helpless laughter. But the Farrellys are as gleeful as they are crude, and they certainly aren't witless. The film works ridiculously well because it never stoops to being mean-spirited or despite all appearances authentically inane. A prom, a crush and a cruel, cruel zipper set "There's Something About Mary" in motion. It seems that Ted Stroehmann Ben Stiller in braces , a kind of Everydweeb, is destined to ruin the biggest night of his young life.
According to W. It all came full circle for Brown; he had lost out to Farley in an audition to join the Second City improv group years earlier. She returned to Long Beach Polytechnic High School to remember how to be a teenage girl for the prom flashback scenes in the beginning of the movie. Diaz was concerned that the audience would be too disgusted over the physical gag to laugh, which could possibly ruin her acting career. With those concerns in mind, another version of the date scenes were shot without anything in her hair. He was told to stop thinking about it. Warren Tashjian was the older brother of the Farrellys' childhood friend.
