Product description

Review

"Wes Anderson has only two previous features, "Bottle Rocket "(1996) and "Rushmore" (1999), but it's already clear that this 32-year-old writer-director possesses one of the freshest voices in American movies. His is a talent that Jean Renoir might have admired."--Dave Kehr, "The New York Times"
""The Royal Tenenbaums" speaks in its own singular voice: at once tender and probing, mindful of New York and its special mixture of grit and glory, but confident enough to mold it into a big, faded magic playhouse, a limitless extension of the Tenenbaum family's private universe. I've never seen moments like these in any other movie."--Kent Jones, "Film Comment"
"Memorable . . . Charming . . . A strong imagination is at work in every part of the picture."--Stuart Klawans, "The Nation"

By A Customer on 20 Jan. 2004
Format: Paperback
this hugely funny film's screenplay is a must read for any real film-fan, or just someone looking for a good laugh. the humour is probably more subtle than a lot of films, that is why a lot of people have told you they didn't like it - they didn't get it.
there are some great lines, especially from royal tenenbaum some simply because of his insensitivity, but margot's unfeeling nature is brilliant too. also the sheer ludicrity of some situations, and the tension created make for hilarious passages.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's ideal 17 Mar. 2014
By Anthony - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I only had to wait about 3 days for the RT screenplay to arrive. I at first thought it may have been a mistake to order it, considering how I've seen the film 200+ times, however it ended up proving to be an interesting read because of the scenes an dialogue that are included that aren't used in the final edit. If you enjoy reading screenplays, and are hoping to try our hand at it yourself, Wilson and Anderson's work here is an ideal point of reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Screenplay 2 April 2013
By justin hawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's the entire screenplay of Wes Anderson's masterpiece "The Royal Tenenbaums". It's in standard screenplay format. There are some photos sprinkled throughout, but they are black and white and hard to make out. Anyway, they are just screenshots from the film. I was interested in seeing how great screenwriters such as Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson put together one of my favorite films. Love this book. A must have for all Wes Anderson enthused cinephiles.
