>Was it your decision? Any Comments? Etc?

No, this is pretty much par for the course for features, which is why I don't
generally work there. Unless you're a writer/director, every script for every
movie these days goes through diverse hands...writer a does the first draft,
they give it to writer b for additional material, it goes to writers c and d
for touch-ups, the director comes on, he has writer e do a few more tweaks...it
happens to all movie screenplays these days, even to William Goldman. I did
mine, now it's in the hopper. In features you have to learn to walk away from
it after you turn in your draft.
