This Meets That

INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS meets HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE

Why Read It?

A tight, charming buddy comedy that hits all the right beats for an entertaining, hilarious thrill ride. Body-snatching slug aliens, action movie stars, the President of the United States - you can't argue that the story isn't ambitious or that the stakes aren't high enough. With fun, lovable characters, effective action writing, and a ton of real laugh-out-loud moments, this script is a joy to read and a clear successor to the successful stoner action films that we all know and love.
