Frosty is clever, well-written and cute.
I think you have a challenging line to toe: the humor seems like it would appeal most to 12 year olds, because of the slapstick, characters and puns, but then the movie might have to be sanitized a little for their parents. Anyway, it's not my place to worry about target demographics and marketing.
As a script, I think it definitely works. It's enjoyable to read. I loved the narration and the protagonists' sad-sack shtick.
Here are a couple minor nitpicks:
-Isn't "prick" a modern idiom?
-I love the witty repartee with the call girl in the police station. Which is why the bleeped expletives sort of ruin the atmosphere. Bleeping takes us out of the era.
-This is reading a lot like a kids' movie - in which case the hooker may be a no-go.
-Did they have heat packs in "the good old days?
-I'd put Cisco and Carmine at more risk throughout the script. The heat is on in the last act, but I'd try to put them in more danger from the get-go.
Overall, good job!

Perhaps her "double" should have some starkly opposite, dark character traits. -Madeline is a very endearing character. I like how she waxes philosophical. -Am I misreading it, or is Destiny dating her shrink?... read
A review of The Four Hour Workweekby Michael Keller on 12/03/2012The Four Hour Workweek is funny and heartwarming, with endearing characters. Overall, I enjoyed it, but my main concern is that there isn't much conflict, since we already know what will happen to Bobby, and he seems to achieve his smaller goals quite easily, so it reads like a sort of amusing travelogue. -It might be funny if Mr. Greenberg starts out normal and then suddenly... read
A review of Penis Envy (NEW DRAFT)by Michael Keller on 11/12/2012This is a funny concept and a cleanly executed story. I donít have so many notes, because the script seems to accomplish its intended purpose: -No need to editorialize in the first paragraph. Trust your audience. -Perhaps establish his impotence in the first scene with some kid of humiliation? -You do a good job of making Randall likable. -The pacing is good and the dialog... read
