Dear Diablo Cody,
I’ve tried to get on the Diablo Cody train. I want to like your movies. I want to believe the hype that you can actually write a decent script. But every time I am completely disappointed. I really can’t believe that you couldn’t get me on board with Juno. I mean, I love Michael Cera and I think Ellen Page is an excellent actress. We only made it through 10 minutes of Jennifer’s Body and we enjoy most horroresque movies. I also see that you’re writing a zombie genre movie. I can’t wait to be disappointed by that as well, which will be especially upsetting because I love zombies.
Most of all I wish you can could write a script which number 1 used any phrase that actual people use (salty morsels? really? who says that? Other than maybe you…) and number 2 didn’t scream at every turn “look how interesting I am! look how interesting I am!” Your scripts are like one of Lady Gaga’s outfits.
Please stop writing scripts so that I am no longer compelled to think maybe this one will be better….
L-boogie (who would like several hours of her life back, you owe me bitch!)
