Genre:   Buddy Comedy, Sex Comedy, Female-Driven Comedy

 

Logline:  When the marketing executive of an adult toy line walks in on her own surprise bridal party with news of her cancelled engagement, her oddball friends take matters into their own hands  by dragging her away on a pre-paid bachelorette vacation to distract her from her worst fear: starting over…(and sharks).

Blacklist Review:

 

"The female friendships and the rapport that exists between the different women are what really make this script a delight to read. Part BRIDESMAIDS, part FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, and part HOW STELLA GOT HER GROOVE BACK, it has everything you could want out of a female driven romantic comedy without feeling dated or forced. There are some very cathartic moments, such as Jess losing it on Ben which is practically cheer-worthy, as well as the fight that breaks out when each friend air grievances about another. It's very raw and tough to hear, but definitely upholds the adage that those you love can hurt you the most. It's also very realistic, given how much time they've been spending together and will hit home for anyone who has ever traveled with friends. The physical comedy is hysterical: from Louise getting stuck in the hammock to the oddly sexual volcano to Daniel sweeping Louise off her feet, concerned that the baby will "fall out." Overall, it's a great representation of women helping their friend get back on her feet, without jealousy or cattiness, and instead with a healthy dose of legitimate opinions and feelings."

 

"The strongest part of the script is its bold and unapologetic sense of humor, which gives the script a distinctive tone. The dialogue has a number of witty lines that are both humorous and full of character (ex.  "'I’m telling you Daniel’s banana pancakes taste like...like what baby angels must taste like.' … 'Like their meat?' … 'Yes. Like the veal of angels.'"). The action also incorporates a lot of visual humor and slapstick comedy that compliments the story."

Austin Film Festival Coverage:  

 

"The underdog story following several strong female leads as they risk their livelihoods to follow their dreams to Nashville to play the gig of a lifetime is a very entertaining framework. The writers do a fantastic job of presenting a core group of very likable and colorful female characters that exhibit strength, independence, humor and talent. Additionally, the writers showcase a strong understanding of this country music world."

"In addition to a strong central story of aspiring country singers/musicians pursuing their dreams in hopes of turning their passion into a career, the looming threat of an impeding police investigation which could target them for murder adds a compelling twist to their adventures on the road and directly threatens their ability to make it to this dream performance. Excellent overall setup for an entertaining and raunchy comedy with heart."

 

"Very good dialogue that captures the country dialect very authentically and gives each woman a distinct personality. In particular, the writers do a very good job of interweaving country music related song lyrics and characters into the situations encountered by the women. From cheating men to killing boyfriends to burning down houses, the action and story essentially plays out like a country song; this is one of the smartest and strongest aspects of the script."

 

"The writers also do a very good job of pushing the envelope with some of the raunchy humor, yet not relying on it as a cheap crutch for over-the- top gags and jokes. Very well done in this regard, as many writers often rely on these gags as vehicles in and of themselves rather than allowing them to organically occur as part of the story."

 

 

Screencraft Coverage:

 

"What Would Dolly Do? is a fun and marketable concept. Written with humor, heart and adventure, this story stands out and comes with a built-in soundtrack. Country music (and even shows about country artists) are currently particularly popular, and this script can prove to be a great contender to represent the genre on the big screen."

 

"Aside from the catchy concept and title, what seals the deal in this script are the characters. The three principals are all driven, witty, relatable and unique. The dynamic between them is also a major draw. The writes clearly know how to balance the melodrama these women are up against by interjecting humor and raw emotion throughout their journey. Also,while there are romances in the script, the real love story is that between these three friends. This is a refreshing concept and something the authors write well."

 

"Another feat in the script is the dialogue. There are many quotable moments, funny quips, and memorable one-liners. The script is brilliant in more ways than one, and the writing style and originality make it a standout."
