I have never played a game here but I thought some might like this one !


take the name of a movie

remove one letter from the title
or
change one letter in the title

and tell us the plot of your new movie :-)


when I saw this game at another place there were already so many posts that I had to think hard to come up with some different ones

the first one I thought of had already been done :

The Parent Rap
( my description was Hayley Mills starts a band and annoys her parents even more )


these are mine to start ... I will link you to the movies in case they are too unknown !


Ow! Voyager
( in which Paul Henreid pinches Bette Davis, hard )
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0035140/

Star Trek: Emesis
( for those who were made nauseous by the thought of yet another Star Trek movie )
( everybody look up "emesis" ... I had to ! )
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0253754/

Dad End
( in which Humphrey Bogart discovers on his way to the electric chair that all the Kids are his )
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0028773/


and my old boyfriend gives these


The Bidman of Alcatraz
( A prisoner makes a fortune running clandestine poker games in jail )

The Good, the Ad and the Ugly
( Mudslinging TV adverts change the face of US politics, forever! )

Kin Kong
( The debate over whether man evolved from the apes, goes on and on )

ILL BILL
( William Shatner swallows emetics, at the thought of making another Star Trek Movie )
( now you don't have to look up my movie name :-D )

Aging Bull
( Playboy bunnies begin to suspect that Hugh Hefner may be full of it )

Transfarmers
( Giant robots from the planet Monsanto, take over earth's agriculture )


the game is supposed to be just 'remove a letter' but 'Transfarmers' was so good I changed the rules lol
