I read this book long after I started to analyse this film in my 3-day Advanced Development Workshops and in Screenwriting Unchained , so it was fascinating to see the difference between how one can analyse a story from the finished film and the actual development process of the screenplay, documented by the writer himself.

I enjoyed reading about the development process, and the author provides some interesting insights into his script. It gets a bit long winded toward the end, but overall an enjoyable read for anyone interested in the creative process as it applies to the film business. Jan 08, Seth rated it really liked it.
A great book about one of my favorite movies--and the creative process behind it. Rubin is generous to show the wandering road that took him from his original idea to the finished project, passing through a lot of unexpected places. Including the full first-draft, wildly different from the shooting script, the book is highly recommended both for fans of the movie and writers alike. A fine book about a fine script. With many insights into both the creative process, creative careers and living a creative life.

He would then spend about an hour puttering around the office and smoking cheroots, then would eventually settle in next to me at the desk, read what I had written, and begin offering suggestions and improvements.
He was a warm and wonderful host to me during my New York visit. There was an afternoon where he and Tom Davis paired up against me and Dan Aykroyd in a spontaneous basketball game, the four of us sneakerless and slipping around in our socks. I made my bones with Bill that day when he hurled a basketball at my head and I managed to duck. Welcome back.

You know a movie is special when people describe it as "Groundhog Day" crossed with The Bill Murray rom-com classic has inspired or informed many similar time loop stories.

Director Duncan Jones uses the sci-fi set up as a parable for the frustration of being used as a tool and the nature of free will within each alternate reality.
We watch him die on an endless loop as he tries to learn how to win in a war against aliens, with each of his lives playing out like a video game in which he gains experience and gets closer to winning. In the end, she ends up killing him in training more times than the aliens do. The film is actually a remake of a Swedish film from When she repeats the same day of her death, she starts to reassess her relationships and unravel the mystery around her accident. And following the success of that film, the sequel, "Happy Death Day 2U," winks at that premise by having Rothe's character dying all over again
