Poorly describe movies and guess what they are

  1. Jul 1, 2011 #1
    For example:

    "Skinhead goes to prison"

    would be American History X

    1. Man erases memory of his ex.
    2. Asian kid becomes friends with old white man.
    3. Kid wishes to be an adult. Wish granted.

    More to come, feel free to post your own.

    Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again.

    Ahah! Great minds think alike?

    Edit: and it was an amazing movie. I love Schindler's List. Heavy, but good.

    No, I'm afraid Austin Powers is incorrect.
