Video Question. Go to this text’s Web site at www. thomsonedu.com/westbuslaw/blt and select “Chapter 8.” Click on “Video Questions” and view the video titled Bowfinger. Then answer the following questions.
1 In the video, Renfro (Robert Downey, Jr.) says to Bowfinger (Steve Martin), “You bring me this script and Kit Ramsey and you’ve got yourself a ‘go’ picture.” Assume for the purposes of this question that their agreement is a contract. Is the contract bilateral or unilateral? Is it express or implied? Is it formal or informal? Is it executed or executory? Explain your answers.
2 What criteria would a court rely on to interpret the terms of the contract?
3 Recall from the video that the contract between Bowfinger and the producer was oral. Suppose that a statute requires contracts of this type to be in writing. In that situation would the contract be void, voidable, or unenforceable? Explain.
