Here’s what reviewers have to say 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.” – THE BLACK LIST

“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.” – SCRIPT SHARK

“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.” – BLUECAT SCREENPLAY COMPETITION

“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.” – TRACKING BOARD
