Seriously-Chris and Goyer should watch Toy Story for an influence on tone.
Normally, I wouldn't think a cartoon would be a good influence on what I hope is a dramatic movie, but Toy Story was deeper than the average cartoon, while still being fun. It nails the dynamic between two generally good individuals who do some questionable stuff in reaction to the other. And it doesn't favor either one. It's a tale of a difficult friendship and I think it would serve them well to watch it.
