Invasion of the Love Robots

Shivering with excitement, Lola couldn’t wait to read the script that she’d heard about from her agent, Lou. Lou had called yesterday to say that this was just the opportunity that Lola needed to show the world ALL her acting talents, and that this film would be a remake of a classic Hollywood science fiction thriller---although he assured her, it would be much up-dated with special effects. He said the film would be a cross between The Matrix and Gone with the Wind, but when Lola had asked him the name of the script, Lou claimed that he couldn’t remember.“Not to worry, “ Lou said, “I’m sending it over by over-night mail, it should be there by tomorrow morning. I’m telling ya, you’re gonna love it.”

As Lola hurriedly opened the bubble-wrapped envelope that contained the script for “Invasion of the Love Robots,” she began to wonder if she might not benefit from acquiring a new agent---maybe one who had a better memory, one who had a slightly more refined appreciation of her acting skills.
