4.0 out of 5 stars
an engaging screenplay, Aug. 22 2000
i think the problem with *most* of these reviews is that the reviewers are bullheaded or egotistical. this isn't a novel, it's a screenplay/script, as the title reads. in fact: it's one of the best screenplays I'VE ever read and i've read thousands (literally). the story is well developed, as are the characters, and the dialogue is hilarious. recommended for paul anderson fans or boogie nights fans. not for book readers, necessarily. my only regret is that the deleted scenes that are available on both dvd versions weren't included, because they helped showcase the cast's amazing talent for improvisation, and allowed the characters to expand even further.
