This book probably contains something for everyone who's enthusiastic about movies. Light, funny, informative AND encouraging to those with dreams of writing commercial screenplays (not me). Lots of Hollywood anecdotes, like their meeting with Jackie Chan, who's so ballsy he drank a bowl of tomato soup with one hand while wearing an all white jumpsuit, and secrets such as the meaning behind where they let you park during studio meetings. Also contains the entire outline for several movies, including a terrific and tragically never-to-be-produced Reno 911 prequel/sequel. Concludes with a useful appendix explaining the jobs of all those people you see in the credits.
