Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Some books make better movies. Take this debut novel by screenwriter Baker—it's already been picked up by New Line Cinema/Warner Brothers—which no doubt will translate better to the big screen. Todd Cartwright, the wisecracking and churlish narrator whose womanizing and hard drinking have made him a legend in his own mind, falls hard for Tami Everett, a classy woman different from Todd in nearly every way. And her widower father, Harry, knows it and begins thinking up ways to scare Todd off. But Todd stands his ground. Before the couple can marry, however, a drunk driver kills Tami. Both Todd and Harry journey to a Caribbean island to spread the ashes of the woman they loved in vastly different ways—leading to unexpected hijinks and new depths of grief. Baker excels at creating memorable scenes, including one in a hospital morgue where Todd pummels the drunk driver's corpse and an adult encounter between Todd and a married woman in an island resort's linen closet. But the author also relies on melodrama, cliché, and hyperbole, and Todd spends page after page wallowing in self-pity.

Review

"Baker excels at creating memorable scenes..." - Publishers Weekly

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE - from New Line Cinema

More About the Author

With two produced feature films (Live Wire and Supercross,) eleven produced movies for television (including the trilogy of Bride movies - Children of the Bride, Baby of the Bride and Mother of the Bride for CBS, Anyplace But Home for USA Network, Perfect Little Angels and Don't Look Behind You for The Family Channel) work on four television series including Dirt starring Courtney Cox, eight plays produced worldwide, Bart Baker decided to write his first novel. The fruit of that labor is Honeymoon With Harry.

The movie rights to Honeymoon With Harry were purchased by New Line/Warner Bros when the book was in galleys. Oscar winner Paul Haggis wrote the screenplay, and presently Bradley Cooper is attached to star.

Bart's second novel, Immediate Family, will be published by Big Muddy Books in the late fall.

Bart presently lives in Ellisville, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis with his partner and two children. Besides writing, Bart is an avid bodybuilder/fitness buff. He enjoys hanging out with his friends and family, politics, TV and movies, and church. He also teaches writing and film courses at Webster University in St. Louis and gives lectures and seminars on the business of film.

You can discover more about Bart at his web site www.bartbaker.com, on his Facebook page, his blog http://blog.bartbaker.com, or find more about his produced film and TV credits at www.imdb.com.

I fell off my chair laughing from the first page. Bart Baker has a way with words like no other author I have ever read. The things Todd Cartwright says and thinks will make you laugh out loud. I wasn't able to put this book down. I read it in three days. Started crying halfway through. It is such a moving story, in unexpected ways. I can't wait for the movie. No wonder every star in Hollywood including Bradley Cooper wants to play this part.

This is a book that will make you laugh and cry at the same time. It is deeply moving and the same time is written with a great sense of humor. I loved the writing style - very precise, with not a wasted word, and with a humor injected in every phrase. Characters are very memorable. It should translate very well on a screen, so I hope to see it as a movie soon.

This book is incredible. It is rare to find a book that makes you laugh or cry. This book manages to do both on the same page. I don't want to give any spoilers but midway through it takes a very unexpected turn. I don't know anyone who has read it that hasn't loved it and I've recommended it to a ton of folks already. You will not go wrong getting this book.

There's a reason this book for years has been called one of the best unmade scripts in Hollywood. Finally the rest of us can see why! Since it was optioned for around half a million by New Line, HONEYMOON WITH HARRY has been associated with such big names as Jack Nicholson, Vince Vaughn, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme, and Oscar-winning screenwriter Paul Haggis--who wrote the screenplay! I even hear Bradley Cooper might be looking at HARRY to be his directorial debut. How fun! So as we all wait for the movie--find a good beach chair and treat yourself to the book!

Hang on tight as an emotional rollercoaster is about to begin! A great 'summer' read that was hard to put down. The characters are real, with flaws and baggage just like the rest of us. How Baker gets to the heart of each one's true nature and sets them on the track for their future is no less a journey in itself. Sit back and enjoy!

I've know Bart for several years and I knew he was a good writer but he has blown my socks off with this book. I hated having to put the book down and go to work. I couldn't wait to get back so I could read some more. At points I laughed until I hurt and I nearly cried several times. The story line is SO good and it makes you think about your own life's challenges. It has some really great life lessons to be learned. I can't wait to read his next novel "Immediate Family"!

This book is so good. It's rare for a book to make me actually laugh out loud but this one does. I immediately fell in love with the characters and in those tough times my heart aches for Tami, and for Todd, as well. Once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down!

This was one of the most entertaining books I've read in awhile. Like all the other reviews I also laughed and cried but walked away with feeling better about having lost someone I loved. Todd gets to the realization that he can carry Tami inside him for the rest of his life and with him, she can enjoy the rest of his life with him as he moves forward. I can totally see this being made into a movie.
