The Movie Synopsis Game.

Time for a new game, guys. And I think that this might be a fun one.

You know how when you're watching TV, and you can highlite the movie and read the synopsis about it?

Definition of synopsis:

1. a brief or condensed statement giving a general view of some subject.
2. a compendium of heads or short paragraphs giving a view of the whole.
3. a brief summary of the plot of a novel, motion picture, play, etc.

So, I will write a one sentence synopsis about a movie explaining the premise or the plot. It has to be just one sentence so as to make it more challenging. This is my game, I make the rules.

For example:

"A couple hires a kooky bio-exorcist to cleanse their house of the living."

What movie could this be? Could it be.......Beetlejuice? I think so!

Another:

"After making a terrible wish, a loving sister must find her baby brother amongst fantastic odds in a fantasy land". The answer is, of course, Labyrinth.

The thing to remember is: don't just outright give away the whole movie in one sentence by saying: Sylvester Stallone fights Wesley Snipes in the future (Demolition Man). That would be too damn easy. Try using cryptic language and give subtle hints to what movie you're using. But most of all, have fun with it.





I'll start.

"In order to save his town and friends, a lovable, goofy klutz must team-up with a friend and sell, sell, sell."

(Now, the next person has to guess what movie this is, and then type a one sentence synopsis about another movie.)
