Your Friend And That Flaky Jerk She’s Seeing: The Rom-Com Trailer

red-heartEXT. LIBRARY – DAY

CAITLIN, 25, leaves a library holding BOOKS.

SMARMY NARRATOR (V.O.)
Caitlin is just another bookish ponytail girl
who’s more in love with books than boys.

She trips into the arms of GREG, 25, who’s cute in a non-threatening way. They make some SWEET EYE CONTACT.

SMARMY NARRATOR (V.O.)
But love… Wrote her another chapter.

They TALK and LAUGH, enjoying some AWESOME CONVERSATION.

SMARMY NARRATOR (V.O.)
Greg was all unassuming and cute.

Greg puts his CARDIGAN on her shoulders.

GREG
Let’s get coffee. I’ll text you.
SMARMY NARRATOR (V.O.)
But little did she know —

RECORD SCRRRRATCH.

CUT TO:

INT. CAITLIN’S APARTMENT – NIGHT

She holds her CELL PHONE – it reads “NO TEXTS FROM GREG.”

SMARMY NARRATOR (V.O.)
— Greg sucks.

INT. MALL – DAY

Caitlin’s shopping with her ETHNIC FEMALE FRIEND.

CAITLIN
He’s into me sometimes, and
that makes me like him more?
ETHNIC FRIEND
Maybe you shouldn’t get invested –
CAITLIN
He’s pretty much perfect.

EXT. FIELD – POURING RAIN – DAY

Caitlin and Greg are SOAKED WITH SEXY RAIN, Notebook-style.

CAITLIN
I need you to make a decision!
GREG
Kiss me!

They GET CLOSE and are like BREATHING ON EACH OTHERS’ FACES – Greg stops her.

GREG
I don’t know if I’m ready.
CAITLIN
Ugh!

She turns to go — and he GRABS HER SHOULDERS and pulls her close. They’re about to kiss —

GREG
Actually, I have this thing I have to get to –
CAITLIN
I hate you!!
GREG
Caitlin, I like you.
(beat)
I wish you were more like my ex.

INT./EXT. CAITLIN’S APARTMENT – FRONT DOOR – NIGHT

Greg leans in Caitlin’s doorway.

SMARMY NARRATOR (V.O.)
It looked like their story was over.
GREG
I just don’t… Want anything serious?

She CLOSES HER DOOR. Her eyes TEAR UP.

SMARMY NARRATOR (V.O.)
She’ll try to move on.

INT. FANCY COCKTAIL PARTY – NIGHT

Caitlin’s at the BIG LIBRARY EVENT she’s been looking forward to… with A REBOUND GUY.

Across the room, she makes eye contact with GREG. He’s with a HOT BLONDE.

HOT BLONDE
Greg? What are you looking at?
GREG
I thiiiink… I know her from somewhere.

EXT. SAME LIBRARY – DAY

Caitlin, arms full of books, comes out of the library and sees Greg.

SMARMY NARRATOR (V.O.)
But maybe… Love will write her another chapter.

She DROPS her books. They RUN TOWARD EACH OTHER.

CAITLIN
I knew it! I knew you’d come back!
GREG
I’m pretty sure I like you!

She LEAPS INTO HIS ARMS, holds his face. Their FACES GET CLOSE – 

GREG
Ehh, I feel smothered.

RECORD SCRRRATCH.

GREG
Sorry?
