GET OUT OF JAIL FREE ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Ever wonder what it would be like to have a "Get Out of Jail Free" card? Just ask Screenwriter Marc, who made the scene at 7th and Montana this morning fresh from a trip to New York where -- together with his brother, Screenwriter Robb and Director Kevin Smith -- he was busy casting and scouting locations for their upcoming movie, A Couple of Dicks starring Bruce Willis. Apparently, the New York City Police Department is especially nice to Hollywood Insiders who use Gotham as a film location. They even give them a Laminated Friendship Card, complete with a special hotline to call in case they get in trouble. In other words, don't worry about getting thrown in jail for a minor infraction, just flash your Laminated Friendship Card at the Arresting Officer and all your problems disappear. Maybe that's why Marc and Kevin decided it was O.K. to leave Robb in New York while they returned to L.A. ...!

Dang, *I* want a Laminated Friendship Card! That could really come in handy....

I love the title of their movie! Any idea of when it might appear in our local theater?

Getting the friendship card is prompting me to become a hollywood film executive, and i'm sure there are other perks as well!
