Bad Synopsis-Number One

Every Wednesday, we are going to be playing a game. 

I was fumbling around on Facebook this morning before I went to work, and this big, bright, yellow image you see above appeared in my feed. My movie fandom couldn't resist, so I wrote one up for "Ghostbusters." (The 1984 one, of course). A few friends joined in on my post. It was fun. I ready about the #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly craze that hit Twitter a year ago, and thought, I need to be doing this on my blog. 

So I am. Every Wednesday, we are going to play "Bad Synopsis."

Every Wednesday you will get THREE brief synopsis for movies, but of course, they won't be simple. They will be weird, strange, hopefully creative blurbs of popular movies and you will be able to guess to see if you can name them. Then next week, I will deliver the right answers, and three more synopsis will take their places. I hope you enjoy.

Here are the first three!

1. People in the greater Los Angeles area are affected by baggage carrying rare exports, a sporting event and the murdering of a black teen.

2. A young Professor travels to Europe where he learns more about his grandfather, cheats on his fiance, and gives dance lessons.

3. A young boy figures out what he wants to be when he grows up, and as an adult he gives a long (and I do mean long) winded explanation why he wanted to do that, his co-workers, and how he got rich from said job. Heck, even his wife chimes in every once in awhile to discuss what she thought of her husband's job. He even discusses how his job ruined his life!

I'll be pulling movies from all sorts of genres, from all different eras and years. Virtually nothing will be off limits, so think hard. See you next Wednesday. Have fun!
