    Hollywood Said No!: Orphaned Film Scripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show, while being a very big mouthful, is a collection of scripts and ideas that never made it off the cutting room floor. In Hollywood, everyone's looking for the next big thing. Sometimes those things get tossed aside, passed over, etc...but that doesn't mean they aren't fascinating, good ideas. This book is a compilation of information, including actual scripts, and drawings of ideas that Hollywood just said NO to. Quite a fascinating peek into the world of Hollywood that we never see much of. Some scripts make you wonder why they aren't movies, and others, well...others are pretty obvious, all with various commentary from the authors at the end to discuss with an insider's perspective just what went wrong with that particular work. 

    One of the things I liked best about Hollywood Said No, was the unique format. I got the print version, and I really think the print is more effective to convey the book's point. The book, while bound like a paperback, was large enough and formatted to actually look like a script, or a playbook for a real movie. I thought that was really neat and unique, and it made it the perfect size for coffee table reads, which is exactly where this book will be going now that I've finished. Right on the coffee table for others to enjoy at their leisure. Bob Odenkirk and David Cross really know their stuff and I'm really glad that I got a chance to read and review this book.
