Who knows if this will fly. The idea is to incorrectly describe a movie in a way that people can still guess which movie it is. And then, I guess, come up with your own. I'm not sure what should happen with incorrect guesses.

ie, "Philosophical rebels discuss whether box can be used as artificial womb." to describe Monty Python: The Life of Brian (re: one of the early scenes in which Stan announces she is now Loretta).



So, to start: Enterprising young men stage daring rescue and return of lady's lost baggage.

Dumb and Dumber. I'll see if I can come up with one.

These are hard. I'm wondering how many of them are for movies I simply haven't seen. :unsure:


"Struggling writer staying in rural Colorado's largest residence just can't hack it with his family... until he can."

"Man fleeing terrorists drives -525,960 hours per mile for half a mile and staves off the incestuous advances of his mother."

Ha ha. Same as mine in post#3. Mine was definitely a more obscure reference :)

Can you guess mine?
I've been thinking maybe "Deliverance", "Beetlejuice", "Tremors", "The Blair Witch Project", or "Cujo", although none of these is a great fit.

Hint: It was performed on stage before it was a movie

Honestly, I got a laugh out of my description, but a lot of people probably haven't seen this movie, let alone seen it on stage.
