Film Dialogue

from 2,000 screenplays, Broken Down by Gender and Age

Lately, Hollywood has been taking so much shit for rampant sexism and racism. The prevailing theme: white men dominate movie roles.

But it’s all rhetoric and no data, which gets us nowhere in terms of having an informed discussion. How many movies are actually about men? What changes by genre, era, or box-office revenue? What circumstances generate more diversity?

To begin answering these questions, we Googled our way to 8,000 screenplays and matched each character’s lines to an actor. From there, we compiled the number of lines for male and female characters across roughly 2,000 films, arguably the largest undertaking of script analysis, ever.

Burger King employees were tricked into breaking all their store’s windows.

One prank call went far beyond accusing the refrigerator of running.

Burger King employees in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, received a phone call Friday night instructing them to break all of the windows in the store, according to local news station KSTP.

Somehow, the caller convinced them.

“According to police, employees received a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Coon Rapids Fire Department,” KSTP reported. “The caller said the restaurant was pressurized and could explode, so the employees needed to break the windows to relieve the pressure.”

What’s more, an understandably curious person recorded the employees carrying out the “fire department’s” wishes.
