    The Describe a Movie Game

    Here is a really simple game I just thought up

    Think of any movie that you have seen and then describe it's basic plot from start to end. The only rule is that you must get most of it wrong and yet still close enough for people to recognize it.

    You can post the title of the movie if you wish or allow people to try and guess what it is, but either way you don't have to wait your turn, just post one as soon as you have thought of it.

    For example here is my description of

    The Last Unicorn

    " It is about this talking horse that has a horn on its head, she is very lonely because all her friends decided to go swimming and didn't invite her. So she runs away to join a circus where she meet a nice young man with a strange desire to wear a pointy hat and a blue dress. But she is still upset that her friends just dumped her so to spite them she turns into a human and moves into a castle with a young prince and his charming old man where they spend each night drinking wine with a really skinny bloke who for some reason likes to sleep on top of an old clock which they mix with copious amounts of red bull. "

    oh and

    " A vertically challenged person is giving a ring off his "uncle" who then dumps him to go shack up with some tall hot guys. So the little guy decides to return the ring to the store to get a refund. On the way he meets a bunch of people who do nothing but get in his way and a few also try and steal the ring off him, but he is determined to get his refund and so he manages to keep hold of it despite the odds. Eventually he makes it to where the ring came from but before he can ask for his money back some annoying little gimp that has been following him wrestles the ring off him and then proceeds to jump into a lake of lava so he can reenact a scene from Terminator 2. But even with the ring gone and the little guy unable to get a refund all is not lost as some old guy he met appears with a couple of birds and they all go home and live happily ever after"

    so get describing those movies

    " An orphin lives with his aunt and his uncle in a really nice home where he has his own room and stuff but yet he feels like he's neglected so he decides to run away with this questionable Old guy who may or may not like little boys. They go on a motorcycle adventure and meet up with some other whiny brats who like to play with sticks. They all go to school together and pretty much do nothing but play with each other and complain all day. So they get really bored and decide to do something about it. The first kid turns out to actually be a jock so he starts to get a big head. But he decides to lower himself and go on a treasure hunt with his friends anyway. All the end up finding is a sleeping dog, poison ivy, and old chess set, and a rock. Some dude with a skin condition tries to steal it but the kids are like no way dude. And they keep their treasure and live to fight another day.

    A guy with the jitters goes on an all expenses paid trip to Germany where he isn't warmly received. After his boat lands, he and a bunch of other folks have to break past some angry locals so that they can get into the country. The guy and his compatriots spend the rest of their trip in Germant looking for some kid whose parents want him back home due to the deaths of his siblings. Along the way, they exchange dirty stories, talk with the locals about Mickey Mouse, sleep in some real dives, and blow things up with their socks!

    A girl is sent to a insane asylum to undergo electrical shock therapy and then with the help of another girl, escapes. The girls lose each other and the girl that was to undergo therapy finds herself in a world. For some reason, she becomes friends to a chicken, a robot, a scarecrow-like creature, and a moose head. The four friends go on a journey to meet a king, to help them somehow with various reasons (like the scarecrow-like creature worries about spoiling). There's this witch who has a odd obsession with vanity as she has a million heads. The girl goes over a test and finds a straw-stuffed man. The king becomes big as godzilla and tries to kill the friends. But the girl kills the giant and the world is right again as a princess who has poppies in her hair for some reason becomes the rightful ruler.

    He-Dad = Harry Potter and the Philosopher's (Sorcerer's) Stone

    Barbecue17 = Saving Private Ryan

    Not necessarily for the game, but I was once reading a bunch of summaries of famous movies, and while most had several sentences of fairly accurate summary, one (and I'm sure it's obvious which), was described only as "A boy and his sled are separated. Problems ensue."
    "That's very interesting...but silly."

    I love the fact that this thread began with The Last Unicorn.

    "A teenage girl likes the rain so moves to a new school and goes to live with her father. All the boys hit on her, except the hot guy she likes, who also likes the rain and likes to punch cars. Even though he doesn't like her, and thinks she smells bad, the boy stalks her when the girl goes out of town to buy books. He finds her surrounded by boys who want to help her read the books she just bought, and takes her to a restaurant but doesn't eat anything. On the way home, they find out animals are killing people. The girl and boy end up dating, because the boy gets high on heroin when he's with her, and they play baseball with the boy's family. At the baseball game, they meet some crazy redhead and her boyfriend, and their Jamaican friend. The redhead's boyfriend wants to kill the girl's father, so the girl runs away with her boyfriend's sister. The boy's family murders the redhead's boyfriend, and they go to the prom to celebrate. Oh and there are some Native people, but they don't turn into wolves yet."

    "Some guys go to visit a town full of half naked men, but the half naked men aren't very hospitable, and instead of inviting them in, they kick the visitors into a giant hole and kill them all. The leader of the half naked men climbs a mountain to ask a dancing naked redhead what to do in case more visitors arrive. Despite being told by the redhead to stay home, the man and several hundred more half naked men decide to go for a walk, to see if more visitors are on the way. The aren't interested in a visit from the very tall bald man riding a giant throne, so they kill his elephants and ninjas. In the end, the half naked men pretend to be a turtle, and the bald man on the giant throne sends them away to have dinner in Hell."

    Lol ya this thread is all due to The Last Unicorn

    "A skinny guy with an unhealthy obsession with war takes a new kind of steroid and becomes bigger and stronger. His new look impresses some people so they decide to make him take part in a cabaret but the guy still just wants to fight as he is a bit of a thug. Meanwhile there is another guy who likes to paint his face red for some reason who is after some old cube. While trying to get this cube the guy with the red face paint fetish upsets the steroid guys only friends which leads to them having an argument on board a plane and the red face guy being abducted by aliens (well he vanishes in a flash of light) which greatly upsets the steroid guy (as he was secretly in love with him I guess) so he decides to crash his plane into the ocean. He is quite annoyed when he is revived by some black guy and then forced to join a group of people that he doesn't know"

    Arguably the greatest film of all time -- and for my money you can drop 'arguably'. Sadly also the parallel and tragic true life story of a director who peaked all too young.

    So there's this kid who goes to live with his aunt and uncle after his parents die. One day his uncle buys him some toy robots, but he loses one, so he goes looking for it in the desert for some reason. He finds this creepy old guy who's all like "come into my house little boy, I'll give you this cool glow stick." Then the old guy takes him to bar. The police come looking for the boy, and his toys (which were apparently stolen), so they catch the first flight out of dodge. They have many adventures running from the police, and pick up a girl along the way. The boy likes the girl, but so does this pirate they also meet, and trying to impress her, the boy and the pirate work together to destroy a government building. The pirate's dog is upset that he doesn't get a medal.
