Writer's Day is Great Fun!
16 August 2005 | by GlorindaSee all my reviews

Recently I had the pleasure to screen "Writer's Day" produced by Bill Batand and Faultline Films. I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with a sprinkle of comedy. I always enjoyed playing the game of 'Clue' as a child. This movie, "Writer's Day' was like a real life animated game of 'Clue'. The colorful characters added fun and hi-jinx. The twists and turns within the plot line were delicious. The film reminded me of an Agatha Christie adventure only much funnier! I highly recommend a viewing of "Writer's Day". While pondering the whodunit you will experience the tongue in cheek adventure. So get a clue and enjoy "Writer's Day"! Bravo & kudos! ~ Glorinda Marie
