Screenwriter Profile: Kirsten Smith & Karen McCullah

24ande.2.500The Writers:

Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah are the powerhouse duo behind some of the biggest  “chick flicks” of the last fifteen years. Several of their films, however, have transcended the diminutive term and established themselves as gender-stereotype-surpassing cultural phenomenons. True, you’d be hard-pressed to find a man who will admit that Legally Blonde is his favorite film, but you’d have an even harder time finding a guy who didn’t secretly love every second of it. Smith and McCullah are the creative powers behind such hits as 10 Things I Hate About You and The Ugly Truth.

A good imagination may be the best friend of loners. (Kirsten)

We have a fun record of ripping off Shakespeare. He was brilliant with narrative and complex, twisty plot turns. (Kirsten)
