In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Finally, a guide to screenwriting by two guys who have actually done it (instead of some schmuck who just gives lectures about screenwriting at the airport Marriott).
Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon's movies have made over a billion dollars at the box office-- and now they show you how to do it yourself! This book is full of secret insider information about how to conquer the Hollywood studio system: how to write, pitch, structure, and get drunk with the best of them. Well . . . maybe not the best of them, but certainly the most successful. (If you're aiming to win an Oscar, this is not the book for you!) But if you can type a little, and can read and speak English--then you too can start turning your words into $TACK$ OF MONEY!
This is the only screenwriting book you will ever need. Because all other ones pretty much suck. In these pages, Garant and Lennon provide the kind of priceless tips you won't find anywhere else, including:
- THE ART OF PITCHING
- GETTING YOUR FOOT IN THE DOOR
- TAKING NOTES FROM MOVIE STARS
- HOW TO GET FIRED AND REHIRED
- HOW TO GET CREDIT AND ROYALTIES!
AND MOST IMPORTANT: WHAT TO BUY WITH THE HUGE PILES OF MONEY YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE!
Writing Movies for Fun and Profit will take you through the highs and lows of life as a professional screenwriter. From the highs of hugging Gisele Bundchen and getting kung fu punched by Jackie Chan to the soul-crushing lows of Herbie: Fully Loaded.
READ THIS BOOK--and you'll have everything you need to make your first billion the old-fashioned way--by selling out in show business!
A portion of the authors' proceeds from this book are being contributed to the USO of Metropolitan Washington, a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to serving active duty military members and their families in the greater Washington, D.C., region.

Ben and Tom are a great fit for me. I love working with talented writers and then telling people everything was my idea. This is a great book, that I pitched to them a while back... I'm thrilled that they finally got around to writing it. <p>--Danny DeVito
