Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, creators of HBO's classic sketch comedy show Mr. Show, present to you this collection of never-before-seen scripts and ideas that Hollywood couldn't find the gumption to green-light. Simply put...
HOLLYWOOD SAID NO!
Since Mr. Show closed up shop, Bob and David have kept busy with many projects--acting in fun, successful, movies and TV shows, directing things, and complaining about stuff that didn't turn out well to anyone who would listen, and even alone, in silence, inside their own heads.
HOLLYWOOD SAID NO! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie (fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell) and Hooray For America!: a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear. This tome also includes a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days and beyond, suitable for performance by church groups that aren't all koo-koo about religion. What you are looking at online, and are about to buy, is chock-full of comic twists, turns, and maybe a few hard truths. We said "maybe," but what we mean was "probably not."
Now, for the first time, take a peek at the scripts that didn't get the go-ahead and ponder a world we can only dream about...and beyond!
If you're a fan of these guys (together or individually or sexually) then you must buy this book! It is hilarious and makes me giggle just thinking about it.
Please make these movies...
I know you say that these are for historical purposes only, but reading the line
And imagining just what that entails gives me laughing fits regardless of appropriateness or current environment (For instance, I am currently in a hospital waiting room). The scripts read like an extended Mr. Show, with that distinctive (and long missed) sensibility and wit. If you don't know what i'm talking about, buy the book anyways. It's like funny movies in your brain. I'm off to get the audiobook now...
