- Is the Concept strong/original?
The story was original and had an interesting ending (although I don't think it worked for the actual script). I don't feel it actually fit the genre of romantic comedy, but it has the potential to take advantage of some opportunities. With some more detailed character development, it could either be a stronger rom-com or with a few changes in the story it could be a cool buddy comedy.

- Does the logline/firs...

For starters, I believe you have a great imagination to come up with such a story. I enjoyed the start of the story because it immediately drew me in with them rolling down the hill. I also like the fact that you didn't waste time revealing that Olivia and Kirk had lived another lifetime. I enjoyed the story from start to finish and especially enjoyed the plot reveal at the end.
Now...what I didn't particularly care for was how long it took fo...

Concept is good although the story can be executed in a much better way.
The first ten pages did kept me going but merely because of my curiosity to know how it ends.
The protagonist are interesting.
Dialogue is good but could be better.
Plot is not very good.
Climax is good.
And cupid showing up, I didn't see that coming.

“Two bodies tumbling and rolling down a hill of tall grass. Both dressed like eighteen-hundred’s cowboys. Once they stop moving KIRK, 29, jumps up franticly looking for a stick to write calculations in the dirt.”
Are they not the same people who tumbled down a hill? You would say Kirk and Olivia are going down the hill. You also only describe what they are wearing and ages, what about their attitudes? Accents? You said 1800’s so why is this rel...
