Monster is a wonderfully short and entertaining skit or sketch. It's got a fantastic premise and great comedic timing. But the ending is a little too familiar and is a joke that we have all seen before so I'd either push it further as I have outlined above or find another way to change or subvert it. This will then meet the expectations of the audience which have been raised by seeing something new and original and fresh in the beginning of the s...

I have to admit, I was intrigued to read a script that was only one page. I guess it's kind of like flash fiction. It's hard to develop characters and dialog in just one page.

The only constructive criticism I can think to offer is to add more detail in the action lines for the room that the story takes...

I know this story is quite short so there isn't much to work with when reviewing it. This would work really well for some kind of notice or informative footage to be broadcast on TV from a medical point of view with the intention of raising awareness of the correct dosage of medicine (I don't know; this is just an idea for the writer, in case they wanted to take this script to another level). The descriptions and actions are very well written, co...
