YOU’RE DEAD TO ME
Written by: Paul McLalin
When a work obsessed young woman, with a sketchy past, accidentally kills her date, she enlists the help of her slacker neighbor to cover up the murder.
“You’re Dead To Me” is a hilarious feature comedy with a really fun premise. The idea is very intriguing and easily leads to a ton of comedic moments that organically emerge from the aftermath of the situation. Add to this a time constraint and a surprise antagonist and the writer has truly raised the stakes to make this script high concept. The story itself is excellent as well. It is well crafted, meaningful, and not just merely a vessel for cheap laughs. It also ties up all the lose ends and doesn’t push the suspension of disbelief too far. In addition there is a strong B story. This script never gets too sappy or cheesy, which is refreshing, and makes this feel more like a regular comedy than a rom-com, thus opening the appeal to all audiences. I loved this script.
