garrett’s got me hooked. i will now steal from him. please participate:
I describe a film plot based on two movies. You tell me the combined title. For example:
Plot: suburban family gets mad at a hairy mountain-
beast for satirizing them in his roman-a-clef.
Title: Deconstructing Harry and the Hendersons.
So reblog or comment with an answer to the following, but ONLY if you write your own too.
Plot: Two pot smoking half-wits from New Jersey travel back in time to stop hollywood from making a movie about their comic book character personas.
Answer: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back to the Future
New plot: A delusional young man buys a life-size sex doll over the Internet, and falls in love with her. The family intervenes by sending the doll to a mental institution after an apparent suicide attempt, where she befriends the other patients and battles her personal demons.
Answer: Lars and the Real Girl, Interrupted
A Deliberate Pace:
New Movie Combo: Two young aliens must hurry to get back to their spacecraft with the help of a cab driver in order to avoid capture by an extraterrestrial bounty hunter. While fleeing, despite being on opposite sides, the cabbie and the bounty hunter develop a love that dare not speak it’s name.
and a few Garrett and I just bounced around (yes, his are MUCH more concise than mine. but then again, have you met me??):
Plot 1: A boy’s life is changed forever when his highly unstable mother sends him to live with an even more unstable Jamaican bobsled team. (Garrett)
Plot 2: a young stable boy finds his true love, but she has already been promised to royalty. the lovers are possessed and then imprisoned in toys. Our hero uses his strength and wits as he and his unlikely friends try to save the girl and fulfill their own vendettas against a grossly disfigured adversary. Oh and they get married at the end. (Me)
Plot 3: A dystopian portrait of two 1970s suburban Connecticut families who crew an ill-fated fishing boat. (Garrett)
Plot 4: In this period adaptation, an ex assassin and his wife find themselves stuck in the struggle between upward mobility and suburban conformity. when the couple’s dreams for themselves are slowly abandoned and gangsters come looking for him, the husband takes their child and flees the only life he’s ever known. (Me) or if you prefer: When suburban ennui becomes too much and his marriage collapses, a former hitman takes his son on the run from gangsters intent on murdering him. (Garrett)
Take a few guesses. And post your own.
