Twisted movie plots  Reply with quote  

This was a topic that I started under "News and Noise" but would work better here. As a basis, I've been using the monthly listings on TCM, but I'm sure that there are other possibilities. The main thing is that the plots of the each movie have to be summarized originally in one sentence. What you post is a new plot pieced together from descriptions of plots for two or more one-sentence movies. The other main rule is that all the words have to come exactly from the sources (no inserted words or changed word-forms).

E.g., from this month's TCM listings:

The Misfits (1961) + Wife vs. Secretary (1936) + Boom Town (1940) + Another Thin Man (1939) =

    A sensitive divorcee gets mixed up with [...] her boss [...] when they strike-it-rich in oil [...] on a Long Island estate.

cool, Walk. The titles are kind of funny together as well, with just the addition of one conjunction:

I'm no angel, but she done him wrong night after night.
