Fight, F*ck, Fight
Relationships are… complicated. Or are they?
Warning – Adult Material. Duh.
Some relationships thrive on open and honest communication. Others are fueled by shared interests and some… well, some run on sex.
Such is the case with the couple in F*ck, Fight, F*ck written by talented scribe (and cheeky title writer) Corey Wilcosky. Rachel and Scott, a young married couple, have a relationship that consists of… everything the title of the script suggests and not much more.
At first glance, their relationship seems fine. But under the surface, tensions run hot:
– Scott wants children, Rachel’s not so sure.
– Rachel doesn’t like the stray cat they’ve taken in. Scott’s in love with their new hair ball.
– And so on. The marital conflict grows.
Yet, whenever the two fight it always ends the same way…
Lots and lots of angry make-up sex. Then everything’s (temporarily) OK.
That is, until Scott accidently burns his *ahem* nether regions with a blow drier (you’ll have to read the script to imagine that sight!). Which forces the couple to forgo sex for two months.
Of course, this seems like the worst thing that could happen. Scott and Rachel find themselves aghast at the thought of actually having to talk to each other. Can the lovers also be… friends?
Maybe not. But perhaps yes.
And maybe – abstinence will prove to be a blessing in disguise; just what they needed all along!
Budget: Medium to high. Two main characters, but several other small roles. Several settings and a cat. This one needs a director who doesn’t mind making an R-rated short, but, in the right hands, this could be a powerful and funny meditation on modern relationships. And if one implies rather than directly shows – it COULD maybe make PG 13!
