Lancelot Link: The Undiscovered Country

Lancelot Link Thursday! This is HANGOVER 3 weekend... and I will be mega-pissed off if Doug is excluded from the group again. The first film, the plot was that he was misplaced after a night of drinking... and these three guys who are *not* friends with each other but are connected by Doug must search for him. So, movie #2 rolls around, and... they manage to exclude Doug from the story! Hey, *he* is the only reason these three know each other! Without him, they would never be together! So #2 was obviously some sort of search-and-replace screenplay, since there is no other logical reason why Doug wasn't part of the group in that one... and now we have #3. Will Doug be part of the Wolf Pack? Or will they once again search-and-replace the script and find some way to remove him from the story? He was the *center* of the first story... yest somehow unimportant in the second. WTF? Here are this week's links to some great screenwriting and film articles, plus some fun stuff that may be of interest to you. Brought to you by that suave and sophisticated secret agent...
