Wonder Boys is a 2000 comedy-drama film directed by Curtis Hanson and written by Steve Kloves. An international co-production between the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan, it is based on the novel of the same name by Michael Chabon.
Wonder Boys is a 1995 novel by the American writer Michael Chabon. It was adapted into a film with the same title in 2000. Pittsburgh professor and author Grady Tripp is working on an unwieldy 2,611-page manuscript that is meant to be the follow-up to his successful, award-winning novel The Land Downstairs, which was published seven years earlier
Wonder Boys digresses so entertainingly, you forget how quickly Grady got into the mess he's in, and can't imagine where we might be headed.
Near the end of the film, when Robert Downey Jr. is chasing Vernon with his car, Vernon says "Motherfucker" but this was overdubbed to "man" for the video release. Why was that? Is it the producers, BBC, being not-for-profit, don't know how to market a movie?
