10 Famous Script Doctors Who Helped Write The Films We Love

2. Quentin Tarantino


Hollywood and audiences fell in love with Quentin Tarantino's unique voice when he first blasted onto the movie scene in the early 90s with the one-two punch of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. So it comes as no surprise that Hollywood called upon Tarantino to spice up a few screenplays with his pop culture-inflected dialogue. Notably, Tarantino contributed additional dialogue to Crimson Tide and The Rock. Understandably, one of Tarantino's uncredited script punch-ups usually goes unmentioned when discussing the two-time Oscar winner's work: the notorious 1994 bomb It's Pat, which received an embarrassing 0% on the aggregate movie review website Rottentomatoes.com. It seems even the legendary Tarantino alchemy can fail transform some material into gold.

I'm YA writer who loves pulp and art house films. I admire films that try to do something interesting.
