The One-Page Screenplay: Tucker Max's The SeX-Ray

Movieline's One-Page Screenplays have been many things, including epic (Rian Johnson's The Plains of Rothinian), smart-alecky (Diablo Cody's Father Approved), and just plain beautiful (Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick's One Small Step). But, we'd wager, they've never been controversial -- so why not have Tucker Max try his hand at one?

Max, for those unfamiliar, is the author of the drinking-and-debauchery memoir I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, which has been made into an independently-distributed film debuting this Friday. Since he started his own website in 2002, Max's true-life tales have won him a legion of devoted followers, and an equally passionate set of detractors who call his stories misogynistic.

What they'll make of his One-Page Screenplay remains to be seen. On with the show!

Tucker Max's Disclaimer:

I know that this may sound like a goofy porn script. And before my movie premiere tour, I would have said it was.

But it is not. It actually happened. I offer you the (NSFW) proof:
