I had a spec go out and that's what we heard. We said we would rewrite it, some showed interest -- but the damage was already done.
We had a lot of important reps -- but none of them gave us the advice we needed before we sent out the spec which was to spice up the story as it's the same thing for too long.
Vacation movie -- it's always a vacation movie but then they learn they have to take Aunt Edna with them and that is what the midpoint would be to me. And then of course the opposite of the midpoint she dies.
Surely adding an Aunt Edna, alive or dead at any point, isn't going to fix a 'vacation movie' script in which the vacation still hasn't started by the midpoint?
