Amy and Scott, short on money and talent, hatch a desperate scheme to commit the perfect murder. As they toggle between colorful fantasies and hopeful delusions, the kids discover their plot to commit murder most foul. The ineptitude of the adults is no match for the kids' covert operations, culminating in a hysterical comeuppance in the final scene. This uniquely entertaining family film is a treat for the eye, featuring a plethora of richly textured one-liners, clever malapropisms and wild costumes from the fantastical world of Writer's Cramp,Written by
One of the least formulaic movies in memory. Writer's Cramp is a quirky, tongue-in-cheek film about unrealistic expectations, wild hallucinations and larger than life characters - all orbiting the wonderfully nutty world of Amy Prescott, as she and husband Scooter try desperately to sell their impossibly bad screenplays to anybody and everybody. The film is chock full of zany costumes, malapropisms and murder most foul. A rare "smart comedy" that will appeal to both kids and adults for entirely different reasons. A first effort by Darva D. Campbell, a filmmaker who shows tremendous promise. Particularly strong performances by Christy Crowley (as Amy), Raphael Barker (Short Bus) and veteran character actors Annie-Scott Rogers, Rana Rines and Petyer Kepler. Worth a look for those needing a solid laugh.
