Don’t You Forget About Me-Scene Fifteen “You Have a Restraining Order Against Edie McClurg?”

  I could make an entire movie out of this next scene alone. But then I would get sued by the creator of Friends, which is the coffee shop (Central Perk) I used as inspiration. I've used other things in my personal life as inspiration for aspects of the screenplay so far, like: The flat… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me-Scene Fifteen “You Have a Restraining Order Against Edie McClurg?”

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Fourteen- “Is This What I Think it Is?”

The original plan for the museum was to be set in a neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. I had two inspirations: the neighborhood from Return to Me (great Chicago movie) and also the neighborhood where Mike's parents grew up: Lakeview. When his parents grew up there, it wasn't the trendy area that it… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Fourteen- “Is This What I Think it Is?”

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Thirteen “FRIENDS FROM COLLEGE”

  Why I write about John Hughes is a question I get a lot more than I would like to admit. Because it means a lot of people don't know why I do, or even who he is and that last statement is mostly why I write about him. I feel like I am keeping… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Thirteen “FRIENDS FROM COLLEGE”

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Twelve “I’m Here For All of the Cats”

  This week my mom shared with me an article that John Hughes' widow has her current Lake Forest, Illinois home on the market. My mom and I commented on how her home was so cozy and down to earth for such a massive house. It felt warm and inviting, and that touched me. I… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Twelve “I’m Here For All of the Cats”

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Ten “They Can’t Kill All of Us. Some of Us Maybe”

I got the flu almost two weeks ago and am still fighting the good fight.  The good news- my lungs are clear.  The bad news- I could feel like this for another two weeks.  So normally I like to space out my posts and since I posted yesterday, I didn't think I would post this… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Ten “They Can’t Kill All of Us.

Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Nine “Cousins. Twice Removed”

Forget about the fact that this is silly and unrealistic beyond compare, can we talk about the kick-ass soundtrack this movie would have? In fact, one could argue that I wrote this screenplay SOLELY for the purpose of creating the world's best soundtrack ever. Maybe I am using this screenplay for the music. Did you… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me- Scene Nine “Cousins. Twice Removed”
