Working Title: "A Day At The Ballpark"

By James Alex Gerard
Genre: Comedic Motion Picture (Fiction)
 

Summary:
A carefree, whimsical, fun-loving and eccentric tycoon (Groucho Marx type) buys a losing, chaotic minor-league baseball team. And he acquires all the various problems and characters that go along with it. And he sets out to turn things around.

Other characters heading the troupe are the team's manager (Chico
Marx type); the zany, pantomimic "hitting, pitching and everything else" coach
(Harpo Marx type;) and the team's lead player/straight man (Zeppo Marx type).

Some example one-liners for the script can be found at: http://comedicskybox.blogspot.com/. I've also written other insightful and original skits that incorporate nicely into the work.

Comparison/Along the lines of: A Marx Brothers film.

Author's Message

This is a synopsis of a motion-picture I envision easily. Easily. It will be an updated version of a Marx Brothers film,Perhaps one-and-one-half hours in length. It's done in 100 percent original ways. Nothing is taken from the originals but the makeup of the characters. I know if the Marx Brothers were around today, they'd have worked with me to bring this work to life. I know that. And I know it be a successful picture, one which is needed in a world full of remakes and "what do we do nows?".

I received a comment from this script via my email the other day. It was some nonsensical, load of bull crap from someone who wrote: "hesitation which shoes and boots tend to be healthy as well as not Adidas Wings Shoes" Sounds like a mentally retarded person. What a cruel joke this site allowed. I work hard and I get tired of being subjected to garbage like this. I have no idea why my writing i somehow linked to this "person' named Graham Linehan on Writing Comedy. http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-it-crowd/articles/graham-linehan-on-writing-comedy Why? Who is this buffoon, and why has he been linked to me? I know nothing about this clown, nor do I want my name associated with whatever he is doing. Hello? Who is this person? Hello? Another person trying to take my copyrighted material? Hello? ###
