Having saw the movie and liked it. I was curious how this (the script) would read. With that said, I was not impressed nor was I disappointed. What I discovered is reading a screenplay just isn't that exciting.

Be that as it may, I laughed out loud at Jason Schwartzman's meandering introduction and his discourse on a (rather elaborate) criterion he developed for rating girls in high school. Now that is worth reading.
