Storyline

Act One is a comedy-drama that relays the story of Kevin Hansen, a confident, immature twenty-two year old screenwriter. Throughout his whole life, things have pretty much gone Kevin's way. He's likable, talented, has never had a problem getting girls, and has managed to sell Heatwave, his first completed screenplay, for a million dollars to a major studio. After moving from his hometown of Memphis, TN to Los Angeles, everything seems to be continually getting better and better. However, soon after Heatwave is completely misinterpreted by the studio and becomes a major flop upon its release, Kevin begins to have increasingly greater difficulty with writing his next script. He gets a sneaking suspicion that a turning point (or "conflict," as he refers to it in screenplay vernacular) is on the horizon. And with the first conflict, as any screenwriter knows, comes the inevitable and dreaded "act one" - an act that, unfortunately, means it's time to grow up. Act One explores what it's ...

This is the story of a member of Generation X who finally comes to terms that he needs to grow up.

A great movie in the spirit of the early Kevin Smith works. This film's main attraction is the brilliantly written and flawlessly performed dialog. The movie's plot is easily related to, and the cast is perfect for their roles. One of the few original comedies to emerge in a decade. The writer, cast, and crew of this film are part of a group that's been making movies for almost a decade now. This film represents their first main-stream endeavor. Their other films are along the same lines as far as quality , but run the gambit as far as subject matter and genre. This particular film is a refreshing change from the comedy-a-minute carbon-copy films that Hollywood usually turns out. Some of the humor and subject matter will find an audience with viewers in their 20's more so than older viewers.
