Tuesday's Twelve Tags #20

Last week's winner: Nick, with 8 points.
The theme: Each film featured a real-life mother and her child in it (Example: Night at the Museum starred Ben Stiller, and his mother Anne Meara co-starred (Nick).

Here's the new dozen. The rules are simple: I'm going to give you a dozen taglines, all you have to do is name as many flicks that they belong to as you can. Try to resist the Google. Get the most and you win. There will always be a theme, though it's worth will vary according to how difficult I think it is. This week's theme is....

As I'm wont to do, I'm throwing a curveball at ya, making you work a little bit harder to win this time around. Below, you will find the usual 12 tags. However, there's a single word missing from each one. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to figure out the 12 movies as usual, but to also take the 12 words that are missing below and form them into a new tagline, and to then determine what film that tagline belongs to. Get that film and you get 7 points.

Got it? Good.

1. Ever _____ to be someone else? Now you can.
2. _____ your own rules.
3. When the creeping dead devour the _____ flesh!
4. They _____ A Movie So Naughty We Can Only Show Their Faces
5. What America needed ___ a miracle. What it got was a hockey game.
6. _____ is about to catch up with America's most successful bank robbers
7. _____ his life, Ray Kinsella was searching for his dreams. Then one day, his dreams came looking for him.
8. Martin just wanted a nice, quiet family vacation. _____, he got...
9. _____ lot can happen on the road to nowhere
10. She's an executive on the move. But her career is taking her a little farther than _____ expected.
11. _____ brought a small town to its feet and a huge corporation to its knees.
12. One man's extraordinary fight _____ save the family he loved.

As you get them right, I'll mark them as gotten and stuff. Good luck.

I don't know the other movies, but I think the theme is "All She wanted was to make a living. Instead she made history". North Country.

Early bird getting the worm and all that.

Wow, Jess - I'm impressed. Practically a clean sweep. There's a whopping two points left.

Kano said...

Varsity Blues is #2

Kano said...

And, I think 9 is Hog Wild, or something like that - the Tim Allen movie.

Thanks Fletch, I really wanted to win - I've never gotten the theme before, so I was really excited.
