Buddy Fleece vs. Epic Love -- which one is it?
I can't figure out whether my screenplay is a Buddy Fleece or an Epic Love. After really digging at the theme, I'm leaning toward going with a Buddy Fleece, since the "thing" the main character wants is not love itself, and the love story is just along the way as the B story.
So, as I'm writing it as a Buddy Fleece, and looking at other Buddy Fleece movies, it occurred to me that very few BF films have a romantic buddy. Romancing the Stone and Far and Away are the only ones that come to mind where the Buddy is a love interest. Anyone have any helpful information out there about how to write a BF story where the buddy is a love interest?
