Where comedy is job one.
Hey, you didn’t hear it from me. That’s merely the thesis of a clever parody by two of our favorite humorists, Wayne Gladstone and G. Xavier Robillard, in which Lucas gets his grubby midget hands on the reigns of some other Hollywood hits.
Here’s an excerpt (from FLYMF.com — I’d like to think of myself as a rather fly MF myself) of a Lucas-approved Big Chill rejig:
Lucas also crafts the script additions himself, showing off the writing chops he displayed in The Phantom Menace. In the opening scene, Costner stands in a cornfield and states, “I’m going to kill myself because I am the friend who most represents the idealism of the sixties and now in the eighties I am lost and cannot survive in Reagan’s America. Therefore, for that reason that I just stated, I am going to kill myself. I just hope my death causes my friends to reunite and learn some truths about the human condition.”
