Tonight Bill and I went to see Dreamcatcher, the latest Stephen King book to be made into a film.

I noticed the film had a certain incohesiveness–a lack of consistent mood–that usually means there were too many writers involved in the script. Only William Goldman and Lawrence Kasdan are credited with the screenplay, but more often than not, writers go uncredited on screen. So I was left with a mystery. It took some time and digging, but I finally managed to come up with the complete list of screenwriters from a secret source.*

William Goldman, Lawrence Kasdan, Stephen King (natch), Casey Grant, Charles Okun, Heidi Abromowitz, Michael Barrie, Jim Mulholland, Joe Dante, Jack Engelhard, Amy Holden Jones, William Broyles Jr., William Shatner, Jose Fuentes, Casey Kasem, Mark Steven Johnson, Masters and Johnson, Keiko O’Brien, Nicholas Negroponte, Kofi Annan, Ferris Bueller, Margaret Meade, Gary Shandling, Nicholas Nickleby, Dana Carvey, Dana Scully, Art Garfunkel, and Pierce Brosnan.

I mean, no wonder it sucked.

*This is a lie.
