Storyline

After a dysfunctional group of unpublished writers with the motto "all for one" accept Hannah Rinaldi (Kaley Cuoco) into their fold, the last thing they expect is her overnight success - but that's exactly what they get. While her career takes off, her eccentric and envious colleagues (Chris Klein, Teri Polo, Dylan Walsh, Dennis Farina and Jonathan Bennett) struggle to find their own paths to publishing fame and fortune. Tensions rise, rivalries form, and hearts are broken. Rejection turns to desperation. Good thing they're only armed with pens... Written by Forever Sunny Productions

Almost true to life
17 August 2014 | by ptpressSee all my reviews

Having been in several small writers groups in different Nevada and California locations I found it true to life in that a non-writer controls the group. The one problem I had with the film was the screenwriters identifying a Vanity Press indicating Roaring Lion as a Print-On=Demand. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I have found POD to be quite rewarding and not nearly as expensive as depicted in the film.

I do believe that all three writers landed publishing contracts not because of what was written, but who they knew. I am sure that is the way it works in Hollywood and I understand it working in the print world as well.

There were some chuckles, but as I found it too true to life in the writers group segments, I couldn't give it higher than 4 stars. For someone who has never experienced the writers groups BS they may find it extremely funny.
