Fourth up is Adam, and it seems a little cruel fate/possible conspiracy that he and Cute Sam are competing in the same group. Adrianna biffs her line when talking about Adam's challenge "to get it up on the big screen," and Adam's face is like, "Seems like the classy thing to do would be not to draw attention to it." Adam tells us how he worked any job that would get him closer to film, which is an unfortunate follow-up to Adrianna's comment, and then he's telling us about his experience in finding a location for his film, like, were these their submission films? I really am lost here, not that I'm guessing I'm alone, but...people are going to be judged on work produced on completely different playing fields? As if the show weren't already meaningless enough. Adam's film is called Dough: The Musical, about "two people who are destined to meet." Adam says that Sam and Hilary are his toughest competition, and here's where if I'm Trever or a Player To Be Named Later, I'm pissed. We hear AGAIN about the one-in-five chance of being sent home, and then a baker is singing about his baking ancestry. Meanwhile, the girl is singing about how she needs a job. There's a lot of parallel singing and purposely overdone ladies-in-waiting action that totally works, the lyrics get funnier and funnier, and the woman gets the job despite some amusing hiccups along the way. I'm not a musical guy, but that was pretty effing brilliant, especially given that within the same time frame as the others, he had to come up with a good script that doubled as good lyrics (and presumably write the music as well).
Carrie: awesome, original, brilliant. Michael: loved it, but suggests tailoring the visual style more toward classic musicals. Eh, not sure I agree, but Michael is the one with a movie coming out this Christmas. Garry also liked it but says the actors had to look at each other more for chemistry, and if that isn't the dumbest thing I've ever heard, it's certainly in the top ten.
