Beat Sheets are what Hollywood Producers like to use when it comes to putting together a script. They are under the impression that every movie made has these particular plot points, hence why the criticism of every movie looks and feels exactly alike. There is no deviation. Now, the trick in writing a script is to deviate enough to create something "original" while keeping the suits happy as long as their beats are met. Another way of looking at Beat Sheets is a 'Paint-by-Numbers' approach. Some say this is cheating while others use it as a guideline to jump-start their own scripts when they have a severe case of writers block.
