Filmmaker Wannabes: Like a Prayer

Tyler and Rich are given a simple task by their producer: Film his sister's wedding. That doesn't seem like such a hard task now, does it? But when the bride develops a crush on one of our filmmakers, a murder happens on sight, and family rivalries break out...all hell breaks out within the church.

2. A Blushing Hostage to Be

INT – CHURCH

(DEDRICH and his bride to be JENNY walk past the aisles. DEDRICH’s errand servant HYPHEN follows them. The minister takes notice)

MACCREEDY:

Why isn’t it the two love birds! You’re early, you know. The rehearsal doesn’t begin for another two hours.

DEDRICH:

We know, Father MacCreedy. Darling here just has a bit of nerves and I wanted to help calm them down.

MACCREEDY:

Of course. Well if any of you need me, I’ll be in my back office. I need to finish up some work before the rehearsal begins.

DEDRICH:

Thank you, Father.

(The minster smiles and exits. DEDRICH turns to JENNY)

JENNY:

My family won’t stand for-

(DEDRICH slaps JENNY)

DEDRICH:

Shut your mouth. You embarrass me. Of all the churches your family had to pick to get married in, they picked this one.

JENNY:

It was the same one they got married in.

DEDRICH:

Well la-tee-da. Isn’t that my ultimate goal in life? To become just like Mr. and Mrs. Polk?

JENNY:

If this is all too much for you, why don’t you just-

(DEDRICH slaps JENNY again)

DEDRICH:

When I tell you to be quiet, I mean it.

(HYPHEN leans in and whispers slowly into DEDRICH’s ear)

DEDRICH:

Thank you.

(DEDRICH takes JENNY’s hands)

DEDRICH:

Jenny, dear. We’re going to be married tomorrow. But if you try to stop this wedding….I swear. Something horrible will happen to you. I promise that.

(The front doors to the chapel open and in walk a couple members of JENNY’s family)

JENNY;

Grandmamma! Grandpapa!

DEDRICH:

Welcome to the rehearsal! I’m glad you’re as early as we are. Please. Come on in.

 

INT – TYLER’s COMPUTER ROOM

(RICH is on the computer looking at emails)

RICH:

According to the email Polk sent, the wedding is taking place at the Saint Budapest Church just two towns over.

(TYLER enters wearing a plaid tux)

TYLER:

That shouldn’t be a long drive.

RICH:

Not at all…what are you wearing?

TYLER:

My old tux. What do you think?

RICH:

You can’t wear that.

TYLER:

And why not?

RICH:

You look like you’re taking Kurt Cobain to the prom!

TYLER:

Oh yeah? And what are you wearing?

RICH:

Just a normal tux, if not a suit! I’m not looking a rejected Rodney Dangerfield stand in out of Caddyshack.

TYLER:

Fine. I’ll go change into something else.

RICH:

We’re just there to film the wedding, not attract attention. We don’t want to steal focus away from the first kiss dammit!

TYLER:

I got it, I got it. I’ll wear a white shirt and black slacks. Sound casual enough?

RICH:

How about I let you borrow my dinner jacket?

TYLER:

Deal. I’ll go grab a tie and we’re good to go.

(TYLER exits)

TYLER:

So who’s getting married?

RICH:

Jenny Polk and Dedrich Marshal.

TYLER:

Sounds like a cute couple.

RICH:

Yeah, consider Jenny has a cut in the Polk family business. Add Dedrich into the mix and that’s quite the cute bunch.

TYLER:

What does Dedrich do?

RICH:

How am I supposed to know?

TYLER:

I just figured the email would give us some insight.

RICH:

This isn’t a character insight, Tyler. We’re not looking into some sort of script. These are real people. You have to remember we’re going into a wedding to film a practical situation. We’re not making movies right now.

TYLER:

It just feels weird.

RICH:

Don’t worry, Tyler. Just remember all the money we’re going to make from all of this. It’s going to worth it.
