I thought that this movie was interesting. But I only gave it a two, because of the language, which had no merit to the story AT ALL!! Also for the sexual references (which were totally out of line), and sexual innuendos at the end of it. That had no reason to be in there.

2 out 5.

Thanks for all your comments guys, now allow me to address them.

First of all, I'm reposting the films because our hosting was buggered up and we had to find a new server, and in the meantime the films were removed from this site. Hence, the reposting.

Secondly, yeah I know we have foul language in our films, but try replacing the F word with POO - not quite as funny. And as far as the sexual references go, hmm. Prude much?

We may seem immature to you, but we have hundreds of fans all over the Internet who disagree with you. Lighten up. The best is yet to come.

Which leads me to point three. EX - We filmed the first half a few months ago and because of uni work we've only just started filming the rest. We should have the principal photography completed by the end of next week, post-preduction should be completed by the end of June, so expect to see our new film up here very soon.

Here's a little taster to wet your appetites :o)

Ex is Stepladder's latest and most eagerly anticipated film yet. With over half of the film already completed, Ex can be expected to hit the 'net in the next 2 months. With professional production equipment, help from friends and the best script yet Ex is sure to be Stepladder's finest production to date.

In the final chapter of The Unwritten Rule Trilogy the three Unlikely Jedi return for more amusing arguements and high octaine combat! True to form, Ryan breaks yet another rule and possibly the most important rule of all: never to sleep with a friend's ex girlfriend. After a conversation about ex girlfriends Jon uses his increasingly powerful Jedi abilities to discover that Ryan slept with his ex girlfriend Rachel! Infuriated by the betrayal Jon pursues Ryan for what could be his final battle! Angered by his friends' constant fighting, Michael takes matters into his own hands with the intention of settling matters once and for all.

And for an extra-special treat, I'll let you all in on a little secret. I've just started writing a feature-length sequel to The Unwritten Rule Trilogy, in which we find out how the three friends discovered their sensitivity to The Force and face-off against a powerful and fearsome Nemesis.

That's all I can really say for now. For updates on current and future Stepladder projects, please visit www.stepladderonline.co.uk

Thanks!

We're pretty much finished with the principal photography now, just need to tie up a few loose ends and we'll be done.

Expect "EX" to be released within the next 4 weeks, and a new Trilogy Trailer anytime between now and then.

Thanks for all your support and patience, we promise it'll be worth the wait.

Principal photography is done, now we just have to edit it together and do the effects. "EX" might be ready to be released sometime next week. I'll keep everyone posted.

The film is now available on this website for download. We really worked our asses off on this one, we hope you all enjoy it.

Please post any comments you may have in Ex's own thread.

Cheers!

Hi! I enjoyed your movie! It was humourous! I liked the idea of goofing up while taking out the light saber!

Hi guys smile It's been a while but I just wanted to let you all know that Stepladder are finally working on a new project, and if you liked the Unwritten Rule Trilogy then you'll love this smile

We're not ready to make any specific announcements at the moment as it's still very early days, but scripts are being written. Head on over to our revamped website (www.stepladderonline.co.uk) for more details, and for links to follow us on twitter and join our Facebook group (and even become a Fan of the trilogy).

It will be great to get involved in the FXhome community again, it's been too long!
