How To Make Your Own Judd Apatow Movie
by Michael Swaim AT CRACKED .COM

Have you ever wanted to make a smash comedy hit, just like Director/Producer/”Writer” Judd Apatow? Now you can! Follow these simple steps and you’ll be on your way to crafting a wry, witty, irreverent romantic comedy chock full of heart, without ever having to generate a single fresh concept!

Difficulty: Can be tricky the first time, but once you’ve got the hang of it, you can pump them out yearly.

Time: 6 months (4 hours for scripting and casting, a weekend for shooting, and 5 months and 28 days for editing, advertising and “make ‘em wait” time).

Things You Will Need:
# A beloved failed TV show from which to pull your cast
# A thorough knowledge of basic sexual slang (for help with this, see my other manual, “From Pearl Necklaces to Donkey Punches: the Eight Comedic Sexual Maneuvers”)
# A disdain for continuity
# An old High School yearbook from which to pull ideas and characters
# A shitload of film to allow actors time to improvise (ie, “write the script”)
# An understanding of improvisational comedy that entails two guys speaking in unconnected one-liners
# Paul Rudd’s phone number
# A giant bag of weed (usually Paul Rudd can provide this)
