TODAY'S 2nd Nugget: Tone of Two Scripts

I read two scripts that target the same demographic. Both extremely well written. Both great roles for women. But I gave thumbs up to one and not the other. Why?

It all came down to tone.

The first script was fun. It felt like a friend who bursts out dancing, and then next thing you know you're boogeying down on the dance floor, having the best time of your life.

The second was also fun, but more sophisticated fare. It felt like the friend who takes you for your first glorious high tea at Harrods.

WHAT I'VE LEARNED: Someone will buy both these script, they're that good. However, who & where will depend on the mandate of the prod. co. I know one fits here, but the other not so much.
