A “Biggest Loser” contest turns into a case of one-upmanship that gets wildly out of hand…
The world loves silly films. Sure, we try to prove to our dates how erudite we are, dragging them to all those Woody Allen fests. But for every When Harry Met Sally, you’ll find two or three goofier films that really hit box office gold. Airplane. Dumb and Dumber. The Waterboy. Hey, we have to keep our brains engaged at work. So when it comes to entertainment, sometimes it’s fun to just cut loose. This script that does just that.
Set at a “Biggest Loser” type contest, Fit follows Lorna and Rick – two competitors vying for “the most weight lost”… and the prize at stake’s a brand new car. The results are neck and neck. Lorna accuses Rick of cheating, resulting in a new weigh-in. Tensions build, slapstick erupts. And extraneous clothing starts to fly. Needless to say, the results aren’t pretty. Will Rick or Lorna emerge as champion? And will the crowd go blind from sight? All this and more (unfortunately) will be revealed. We dare you to open this script and find out!
About the writer: Born and raised in Sweden, Pia Cook is director of the short film “Them That’s Dead“ and writer of produced feature films “Finders Keepers: The Root of All Evil” and “Blackout“. She started writing screenplays in 2006 and has written over sixty short screenplays and ten features. (Yeah… that’s not a typo. Six ZERO.)
Budget: Relatively low. You’d have to pin down a show-room type location – complete with a car… and a few extras for the contest crowd. So this one’s not zero budget. On the other hand, it’s single location with no FX. Your main requirement? Two actors with great comedic timing. Pull that off, and this script’s smooth sailing.
