The screenplay PDF came emoticon I"m happy! I haven't read it yet, just skimmed it quickly to see if it was all there and for any obvious things that stuck out.

BREAKING NEWS: Skip didn't kill his family with an ice pick, he clubbed them to death!

BREAKING NEWS: Rumsfield didn't remove the glass from a downstairs window in Walter's house, he climbed up the ladder Ricky was using to paint his house, and then smashed a bedroom window!

BREAKING NEWS: Rumsfield didn't carry the tray of brownies over to the Klopek's house, Bonnie did!

Most of the scenes I've looked at are similar or the same, but the details are different. Almost every line of dialogue is slightly different. It's very weird!

If you PM'd me your email address it will be arriving shortly, as soon as I get back on my main computer emoticon There are gonna be a lot of new and weird things to find!



Yes!! emoticon

Didn't have time to do much more than skim (I'm headed out to dinner here presently), but Hans is kind of snarky in this version. I LOVE it.

Re: THE 'BURBS Screenplay?


Just received my copy Kris, thank you so much! Really looking forward to reading this. The first thing I noticed is that the draft is 118 pages. The rough rule of thumb for a movie script is that a page equals a minute of screen time - so 118 pages would equal roughly 1 hour 58 minutes.. The final movie runs for about 1 hour 41 minutes, so there must be a few scenes in here which didn't make the final cut. Can't wait to read the writer's original vision for the story emoticon

Loved the barbecue scene and when they ask questions to the paper boy
about the Klopeks, their street number is 903.

"All i know is their street number ends in a three, wich is always bad luck for paper boys"

Brilliant emoticon

Thanks Kris, I'm reading it now and just got to the part in the beginning where Weingartner is shooting crows, and had to chime in.

Apparantly during the paperboy scene in the opening they mention who lives between Rumsfield and Walter.

strange youngster named Barkelow rides his bike in concentric circles

So far this is great. I'm really enjoying reding this

I read it, and it's basically the same story but with a few dialogue changes, and slightly different character traits.

When you've seen a film hundreds of times, even small dialogue differences seem like a big deal. For example, it seems so strange to hear Ray say a different line after he watched Hans beat the hell out of the garbage. The "I've never seen that" line is one of my favourite lines from any film, ever. So it's weird to see it wasn't scripted exactly like that. I wonder if it was an ad lib, or if there was a rewrite sometime after the draft that we saw?

That's my favorite line too. It's actually my IMDB signature.

There was a rewrite after this, and I believe Joe Dante said there a lot of ad-libbing. The film was shot in sequence so any changes they did make, could easily be made to fit into the story.
