...And Maybe You Can Hire Some Chimps To Type It
Warren Zide, one of the producers of the American Pie and Final Destination movies, has decided to turn the keys of the Hollywood brain trust over to a bunch of frat boys.
See, his new big idea is to make a movie called Its Only College, and instead of paying a bunch of sweaty, balding basement-dwelling writers to come up with a fair-to-middling script, he has set up a website where anyone with a good old college story can submit a scene.
Well now - that should be good.
Why do I get the sense we will all find ourselves drinking in the enriching cinematic experience of beer-showering frathouse parties and - well, that's probably about it really. Well, who knows really? Maybe it will work. Hollywood does need to try some new things, but still I am a bit skeptical on this one.

Besides, if MY personal college experience is any indication of what is to come, the big screen will soon see a 90 minute thriller that includes such jaw-dropping scenes as some guy eating Ramen noodles in his underwear sitting on a 3-legged couch held up with a stack of phone books, who constantly borrows money from his parents for rent and most embarrassingly, unceasingly strikes out with the ladies on a daily basis.
Wow. I cant wait.
