Discussing screenplays in a book club format

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang by Shane Black | #11

Screenplay Book Club is delving into the double digits! Thanks for sticking around!

This week, Hunter asks a shocking question about the Property Brothers and we do a live pitch to a boardroom full of execs, but we mostly talk about Shane Black's screenplay for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Thanks again to Nick F. for the script!

Here's that Arnold Schwartzenegger Total Recall commentary Hunter brings up!

Things to Consider:

  1. What does having a meta/conscious narrator add to the script?
  2. How does the last quarter of the script derail? How could this be fixed?
  3. Was the mystery crafted in a “fair” way that allows viewers to play along?
  4. What genre would you label the script as? How would it be pitched and what is its selling point?
