Looking at the secrets inside a great script
13 July 2014 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Brief yet interesting. One of the many extras from "The Weather Man" (2005), this one reveals about the film's script written by Steve Conrad and how the project got made, with producer Todd Black - who worked with Steve in "Wrestling Ernest Hemingway" (hunt down this movie, please!) - who always wanted to reunite with the writer, then the script came up and it was all a matter of time to join Nicolas Cage, Michael Caine and Gore Verbinski.

Good bonus material, with the highlight being Conrad's explanations on how he came with the story, the facts behind the fiction - the idea of Dave Spritz being hit by fast food throughout "The Weather Man", according to him, was from a real incident involving his friends trying to do same thing to a big shot reporter during a live coverage. The opinions - as usual in this type of program - are too much focused in selling the image, the success but they're not all wrong about the movie. No way. 8/10
