The Dude That Does Stuff Movie Plot Game #2

Last Week's Results: BD79 took the win, getting 5/10 movies.

The concept is overwhelmingly simple; below are 20 movie plots, torn down to their basest base (and invariably involving the words "dude" and/or "stuff"). All you must do is name the film. 1 point per correct answer; he/she with the most points wins. Google to your heart's content; it will do you no good. Many films might match the plots you see below, but there is only one correct answer, and that's the one that's in my head when I write it.

Have fun with this stuff, dudes and dudettes. This being the second edition, the difficulty level has been set to "mostly easy," with me by and large choosing well-known flicks, with a few potential stumpers thrown in there.

1. Dude goes back in time to learn stuff. Meets Dudette. Wants to stay.
2. Dudette is unhappy with her life. Does random stuff to dudes and dudettes. Makes her feel better.
3. Dude's ancestor found important stuff. Causes shitstorm for dude.
4. Dude escapes military to fight and stuff.
5. Dude thinks crazy stuff is happening to his ex-dudette. Does wacky stuff to try to save her. Punches a bear.
6. Dudes fear for losing their jobs to rival dudes. Get all hardcore and stuff. Lose but win.
7. Assdudes do bad stuff to little dudette, get stuff comin' to them.
8. Lonely dude marries dudette. Accidentally steals valuable stuff. Honeymoon for dude and dudette.
9. Dude wants to be a more powerful dude. Does bad stuff to become one, including killing his dudette.
10. Dude talks to dude, who talks to other dude, who talks to dudette, who talks to third dude, who talks to...
11. Dude knocks up dudette, who gives birth to weird lookin' little dude. Artsy stuff happens.
12. Dudes lose vehicle; can't remember stuff.
13. Little dudes look for valuable stuff. Bigger dudes chase them.
14. Dumb dude relearns elementary stuff.
15. Dude gets accused of knowing who did bad stuff to important dude's stuff.
16. Dude makes copies of family's stuff; does lots of creepy stuff.
17. Dude is getting too old for this stuff again.
18. Dude teaches younger dude about baseball stuff.
19. Dude creates stuff and invites dudes and dudettes to check it out. Bad stuff happens.
20. Dude learns about the error of his ways. Over and over again. Will do good stuff from now on.

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

Justin said...

I'm not the biggest fan of this one Fletch but we will see how it continues to grow.

I think 9 is Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith...

Fletch said...

Nic and Hope - each of you got a few, but some of your (albeit good) guesses just aren't the movies I was looking for.

Answers have been updated.

Fletch said...

Justin - because you can't Google the answers? ;)

Just kidding. And I'm afraid not of your guess.

Justin said...

Wow come right out and say it :)

Is Nick paying you under the table to say some of these things? Haha

Univarn said...

Some guesses.

1. Back to the Future 3? Probably not... lol
18. Bull Durham

...a few sound so familiar to me I'm annoyed I can't put a name to it. Oh well, I'm not even confident with these.

Myherobobhope said...

I think Bull Durham may be right...

5. The Wicker Man

Justin said...

1. Back to the Future 3
3. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
18. Bull Durham
19. Spider Man 2
20. A Christmas Carol

Fletch said...

Answers updated. With 10 movies remaining, this week's standings look like this:

Myherebobhope - 4
Nic Cage - 3
Justin, Univarn, Mrs. Fletch - 1

Fletch said...

Forgot to mention - yes, Bull Durham was right. And Justin - no, Nick is not paying me, but I wouldn't put it past him...

Nick said...

3. Transformers?
4. The Marine?
19. Flubber?
20. American History X?

15 sounds familiar, but I can't figure it out.

J.D. said...

11. Rosemary's Baby?

Bob Turnbull said...

Taking a few flyers here:

2. May
6. Gung-Ho
9. Swimming With Sharks
10. Slacker
11. Eraserhead

blake said...

Is number 2 Amelie? I hope so. I never know the answers to your games.

blake said...

And 11 has to be Eraserhead, right? That's artsy.

Gaylord said...

4. Lionheart, or some other jean Claude movie, they're all the same...

9. Scarface

Fletch said...

Bob - I'm impressed; you got three of what I considered to be the hardest ones in Slacker, Eraserhead, and Swimming with Sharks.

Blake - Amelie is indeed #2.

Gaylord - you're far and away the closest with #4, so I'm giving it to you. It was Bloodsport.

wiec? said...

cool game friendo.

i need to get here sooner next time.

elgringo said...

Is #15 Crossing Lanes?
Is #19 Honey, I Shrunk the Kids?

Nick said...

6. Office Space?

Fletch said...

I love this game that, for no other reason than that it shows just how generic and similar the base stories of so many movies are.

Dead Pan - Correct on Jurassic Park. That leaves just numbers 6 and 15 on the board. Almost anyone's game...

Jason Soto said...

My guess for 6 was Office Space but Nick guessed that. Now I'm at a loss.

Is 15 War Games?
-Jason

Gaylord said...

Is 6 Super Troopers?

Fletch said...

6 is indeed Super Troopers. Nice, Gay.

Bunch of different folks on the board. With one movie remaining, the standings are as such:

Myherebobhope - 5
Nic Cage, Bob - 3
Gaylord - 2
Justin, Univarn, Mrs. Fletch, Blake, Nick, Justin - 1

By virtue of Gay getting the 2nd to last one, bobhope seals the victory.

Nic Cage said...

#17 belongs to me Fletch, I answered it first.

Nic Cage said...

Hmmm...#15, Big Lebowski?

Fletch said...

"#17 belongs to me Fletch, I answered it first."

Sheeeit - indeed you did. Okay then, scoreboard looks like this:

Myherobobhope, Nic Cage - 4
Bob - 3
Gaylord - 2
Justin, Univarn, Mrs. Fletch, Blake, Nick, Justin - 1

One plot left to rule them all. Unless Bob gets it, in which case we'll have a 3-way tie.

bd79 said...

15. I'm probably way off, but Primal Fear?

Is this one of the stumpers, or one of the easy ones?

bd79 said...

15. Ocean's Eleven? I'm running out of possibilities here.

Fletch said...

BD - no and no on the guesses. Is it a stumper? I didn't think it was one of the harder ones, at least in terms of how popular the movie is. It's really well-known, and from the mid-90s. That's all the hint you get.

Fletch said...

Counting #15 as a stumper for me. The answer was Scent of a Woman.

Bob Turnbull said...

never would have got that...Primarily because I have absolutely no memory of the plot of "Scent Of A Woman" except for young dude hangs around with old blind dude who shouts "Whoo-ah!" and other stuff.

But I suppose that would've pretty much given it away, eh? Seriously though - I have absolutely no memory as to what that movie was about.

Fletch said...

Bob - yes, mentioning anything about a blind dude would have given that away.

Here's Scent in a nutshell: O'Donnell (along with Phil Sey Hoffman) see their buds trash Mr. Trask's car. Separately, O'Don has his blind babysitting gig for Pacino set up. That ends up being a big ol' trip, they help each other with their respective problems, Pacino says "Hoo-ah!" and "This whole place is outta order!" to save O'Don from getting kicked out for not ratting out his buddies. The end.
