    That's right. According to this article (scroll down to the "It's Not Pat" paragraph), Alex Borstein has written and is now shopping around the screenplay about everyone's favorite lady Ms. Swan. Normally I'd be apprehensive about any kind of movie based on TV skit but Ms. Borstein has showcased her writing skills on Family Guy and she's got it. I have high hopes.

    I don't. Ms. Swan is also the LAMEST character EVER!

    I like the character, but I'm not sure I could take 90 minutes of her.

    I don't think it will work as a movie. I like Alex as a writer, but a 90 min flick...I just don't know how it will work out.

    If they were to do a MAD tv movie, they should make it with Sasso doing an Arnold/Steven Seagal/Kenny Rogers movie. I'd pay to see that.

    I also agree that Ms. Swan wouldn't make a great movie. She's annoying enough in a skit length production. I don't know if I could take a feature length version of the character.

    I find this very odd considering there was sketch on MadTV where Ms. Swan sold her life story as a movie idea to Garry Marshall.

    I distinctly remember Dennis Hopper with a gun shouting, "If you say 'He looka like a man' one more time then everyone dies!" Also Susan Sarandon was the one protraying Ms. Swan in the movie. It was a very funny sketch.

    By the way, I agree that I wouldn't be able to stand Ms. Swan in a movie. I'd probably bamf into the projection booth and tear apart the unit. Ms. Swan is only digestable in a manner of a few minutes, not in ninty or a hundred. Three hours would be cruel and unusual punishment.

    If they did a movie parodizing the character (like the movie sketch) then it would be funny.

    If they have any sense, this will be a DTV movie. The list of late night skits turned into movies is long, but the successful ones are only a short part of it.
