  • The first screenplay that makes a handful of these terms cool is going to make a lot of money.

    How is that? I can certainly see how the first screenplay that uses these terms and makes a lot of money would make the terms cool. I don't see how it would work the other way.

      Yeah, it's hard to tease the two apart. I guess the key is that the movie be well made--a good movie should make money, whether it uses slang or not. I was trying to give myself an escape hatch should a really bad movie use the slang--think of all the technobabble in movies. Slang can be done well and it can be done poorly, and I was trying to get across was that slang alone isn't enough.
