The Hooked screenplay has been honored by these competitions:

Here’s what reviewers wrote about the Hooked screenplay:

“A Very Sweet and Endearing Romantic Comedy”

“A very sweet and endearing romantic comedy with an excellent relationship between Violet and Shawn at the center.”


“Superb Characters, Strong Dialogue.”

“A rewardingly nuanced, three-dimensional, and charming– if unconventional–love story. Strong character voices define the entirety of the plot, while the genuine chemistry between the central roles creates a natural, seemingly effortless appeal within both their relationships and their perspectives in broader terms … Superb characters, strong dialogue, and a polished overall execution wind up rendering a finished product that seems in many ways both moving and entertaining.”


Incredible Characters and Story


“Achieves the Rare Feat of Being Both Funny and Romantic.”

Hooked is a fluently written romantic comedy that both acknowledges and deviates from the conventions in a sparky, original manner … While this set up might seem wildly implausible at first glance, it’s established in a very organic way, with warmth, intelligence and wit – three qualities that characterize the rest of the screenplay … Achieves the rare feat of being both funny and romantic, delivering an emotionally satisfying ending to Violet and Shawn’s misadventures, without patronizing the audience.”


A Lot of Heart, Poignancy and Charm.


“A Sweet, Touching Story.”

Hooked is a sweet, touching story that works to bring out the best in people, using autism as a backdrop.”
