My Peterio Awards (Part Twenty-Two: Worst Screenplay)


First, kudos to bringing Karen Allen back. But the praise stops there in a hurry for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Why the tacky, unrelated opening? Why the absurd blind visionary tag-a-long? Why add on the uncharacteristic visual effects burdened actions? And above all things, why the monkeys?

Other Notable Nominees:‘Hancock’, ‘Made of Honor’, ‘Penelope’ & ‘Wanted’

Why the tacky unrelated opening? You could probably thank George Lucas for that little bit of influence. I agree with you for the most part here Pete. There are so many dead ends, missed opportunities and clunkers in this screenplay. I agree with you, and welcome back.
