A film blogging site launched earlier this year at the end of the writers’ strike is now up against it with the studios, the guilds and even the bloggers. To wit:

“Hollywood Script Editors Film blog erupts a storm of controversy over
Tucker Max‘s new movie ‘I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell’ staring Jesse
Bradford
.
The anonymous script reader, whose blog is hosted with blog community
FilmIndustryBloggers.com, was handed the script for the $6M movie
outside of her role as a professional script reader. The blog has hit
a sore spot for Tucker lovers, Tucker haters and some of the crew who
have chimed in on what is really going on during the shooting of this
movie (with over 100 comments since it was published a few days ago).
Here is what started the heated debate over the state of Hollywood and
the movies it produces:
“A friend at an agency slipped me a copy of the script for the
currently-in-production Tucker Max movie, ‘I Hope They Serve Beer in
Hell’, written by Tucker Max and some dude named Nils Parker. I am
very excited to talk about this script, especially since I didn’t read
it for my job so I feel I can get into a bit more detail than usual.
My primary goal won’t be to expose how sexist or otherwise offensive
the script is because that’s obvious and easy and not the most
interesting thing to talk about here. Here’s what is: Holy crap, it’s
terrible. I’m talking God-awful. Even with the offensive factor set
aside, it’s in my top 10 worst comedy scripts ever read (out of
probably over a thousand).
