Kicking and Screaming

written by Jeff Goode


JEFF. I just saw that new movie Kicking and Screaming.

MIKE. The one with Will Ferrell?

JEFF. Nope.

(MIKE is a bit surprised.)

MIKE. Yeah, that’s the one. Starring Will Ferrell and Robert Duvall.

JEFF. You’re thinking of a different movie.

MIKE. I’m thinking of Kicking and Screaming with Will Ferrell & Robert Duvall.

JEFF. Oh, I see what you’re saying... (correcting) No. I did not see the new movie Kicking and Screaming with Will Ferrell.

MIKE. You didn’t?

JEFF. I wanted to. But my girlfriend hates Will Ferrell. So I was forced to see that other new movie. Kicking and Screaming.

(MIKE understands now.)

MIKE. So what did you see?

JEFF. Monster-In-Law.

(A beat for laugh, then… QUICK BLACKOUT)
