Screenplay Idea...but I need help!

Here's the Story Idea:
A Six year-old named Joey is tricked by his older brother into believing the Police are after him. Joey goes “on the lamb” and embarks upon an exciting journey of adventure and self-discovery.

Simply put, it's HOME ALONE meets THE FUGITIVE.

The genres encompassed are Adventure, Family, and Comedy.

What do you think? Would this make a good Film/Story?

"On the lam." Your first step is not to make mistakes like that.

Oops on "Lamb"...Thank you so much. That would've been embarrassing.

Re: Screenplay Idea...but I need help!

Not a bad idea.

It is never easy writing the script, but if you get the tone right I think it could work.

Re: Screenplay Idea...but I need help!

This reminds me of Dennis the Menace (1993).

Good idea though, work on it!

Re: Screenplay Idea...but I need help!

Sounds like a good idea, if u ever finish it I would love to read it.

it's in the telling

Any story can BE good story, if its told right. Good luck.

Re: Screenplay Idea...but I need help!

Is it really wise to put your idea on a public message board?

Re: Screenplay Idea...but I need help!

It actually sounds very good. The adventure part is what I'm most worried about. I'm particularly annoyed with any sort of love interest stories that aren't romances. The chick always gets in the way of ass kickin'

Re: Screenplay Idea...but I need help!

why is the police after him?
maybe some shady characters are after him....

Re: Screenplay Idea...but I need help!

This is probably the best idea for a movie I've ever seen posted on IMDB. Delete the post, and write it.
