    This was by far one of the sweetest screenplays I've ever read; it was full of heart, and some sequences really were outstanding and very touching. (specifically, when the Halloween 'ghost' gives John some candy, and then later when John finds Jane at her apartment.

    As a big fan of comedy (and karaoke), I was really happy to get this assignment. Your writing style is professional, and this is a fun read.

    Hey mate thanks so much for the review of crossing the road. I definitely agree with you regarding the conflict and some of the scene pacing (both of which I'm currently knee deep in fixing for the next draft). Much obliged for your input and I hope to return the favor soon! -jeffrey

    Thank you for the thank you. Honestly, the thing that seemed strangest to me about the script was, for being about Rock and Roll, how there wasn't that many musical performances.
