When psychologist Susan Forward's book "Men Who Hate Women, & the Women Who Love Them" came out seven years ago, it flourished for 40 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and attracted a flock of Hollywood producers with ideas of how to turn it into a movie.

Once upon a time M.J. Anderson had a promising story idea and it must have been pitched something like this: Since Hollywood discriminates against talented women of substance, let a team of feminist screenwriters profit from the sexism by hiring a bozo male as a front. While the women write the scripts, the brain-dead male takes meetings. Call the not-so-fantastic premise "Hollywood Ever After" and stage it at the Tiffany Theatre. So far so good.
