The Dude That Does Stuff Movie Plot Game #5

Last Week's Results: JacksSmirkingRevenge came through late with three winners, enough to barely squeak out a win (though I kind of tied, with 3 stumpers).

The concept is overwhelmingly simple; below are 15 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. The difficulty level for this edition has been taken down a hair or two from last week, I believe.

1. Dude never looks like himself.
2. Dude is made of stuff.
3. Dude gets accused of stuff.
4. Dude finds stuff that no one else can.
5. Dude bets he can do stuff. He can't. Until he can.
6. Dude deals with volatile stuff/other dudes.
7. Dude wakes up to find that none of his stuff is the same.
8. Dude pulls prank on dudette; realizes error of his ways.
9. Dude talks about stuff.
10. Dude gives up stuff to get dudette.
11. Dude didn't do stuff.
12. Dudes fight stuff.
13. Dudes try to get stuff that isn't theirs.
14. Dude likes dude a little bit too much.
15. Dudes and dudettes chase stuff.

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

Fletch said...

Wow - all those guesses...and not a single one correct.

However, so yoy don't get too discouraged, you're all really close, in that for many of the guesses, I looked at the summary and thought of the movies you're guessing while I was typing them.

Oh wait - I take that back, Gay was right on one of his guesses, #11. Interestingly enough, another one of his answers is incorrect for the number he provided, but correct for a different one. So there's some easy pickins for whoever wants to figure that out.

Nick said...

14. Talented Mr. Ripley

Just to get on the board!

Nick said...

1. A Scanner Darkly?
2. Flubber?
4. I SO know this movie, but I can't think of it.
5. She's All That?
7. Vanilla Sky?
8. Carrie?
12. Fight Club
13. Any heist movie ever made?

Justin said...

My first round of guesses:

2. Iron Man
3. Mystic River
3. (alternate) Shawshank Redemption
7. Family Man
10. 40 Days and 40 Nights
13. Oceans 12 or 13 (haha)
15. Twister

Fletch said...

Interesting, Nick - just like with Gay's guesses, one of yours is the right movie, but the wrong number, and thusly incorrect.

Sounds like I've got some tough as hell ones here. Just remember - all of these are well-known, mostly widely seen films.

Fletch said...

Oh, and Justin just got #15.

Univarn said...

2. Inspector Gadget

yikes my lack of ability to do these is outstanding.

Jason Soto said...

1. Heaven Can Wait or Down to Earth
2. Bicentennal Man
3. Wrongfully Accused
7. 28 Days Later
8. Cruel Intentions
12. Ghostbusters
13. Ocean's 11/12/13

And Fletch, you should totally do your "wrongs" in the style of SNL's McLaughlin Group. WRONG!!!

Fletch said...

Jason -
12. Ghostbusters - you are correct, sir!
13. WRONG!

Univarn - uh, yeah, I guess so. Really, just one guess? Granted, it was a good guess, but jeez. ;P

Univarn said...

Fine, you want more guesses then :P.

1. Hollow Man
2. Robocop
3. Primal Fear
10. Grease
13. The Italian Job (original)

There, feel better?

Fletch said...

"There, feel better?"

Of course - you even got one right!

2. Robocop - you are correct, sir!
10. WRONG!
13. WRONG!

4. No Country for Old Men
4. There Will be Blood

Fletch said...

JSR - I'll have to double-check tomorrow, but I think that from all that, you got 2 right. Still enough to give you the lead thus far...

The Movie Mistress said...

1. The Master of Disguise
5. Guys and Dolls
6. The Absent Minded Professor
7. Family Man
9. Sleepless in Seattle
13. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Bob Turnbull said...

3. Primal Fear
6. Wages Of Fear (or the remake Sorcerer)
7. Mr. Destiny
9. My Dinner With Andre
10. Splash
13. The Killing

I have a few other options for some of these but figured I should only guess one title at a time.

The Movie Mistress said...

1. Beetlejuice
3. The Green Mile
3. Dead Man Walking
6. Jumper
6. Outbreak
9. Goodnight, and Good Luck
10. Knocked Up
10. Life Stinks

Bob, Mistress (x2) - WRONG!

Keep 'em coming. Hints coming tomorrow if they don't start getting gobbled up.

Steve said...

1. Darkman
3. Presumed Innocent
4. Raiders of the Lost Ark
13. Sneakers

JacksSmirkingRevenge said...

1. The Mask

3. The Hurricane
3. Disclosure
3. The Crucible
3. Wild Things

Bob Turnbull said...

7. Back To The Future
9. Secret Honor
13. Rififi
13. The Anderson Tapes

Fletch said...

Ok - JSR got #3. Here's some hints on the rest of the remainders:

1. Movie Mistresses' Master of Disguise guess was closest.
4. The guesses are really funny...if you know what the answer is. Think comedy.
6. Think action movie.
7. This movie was featured here very recently.
9. This is so straightforward that you're missing it. The plot centers on a dude that talks about stuff. Don't think too hard on this one.
10. Movie Mistresses' Knocked Up guess was the closest.
13. Ok, this one is indeed a bit on the impossible side. I'm barely gonna bother with a true hint, as I don't wanna give it away. 90s.

Justin said...

10. 40 year old virgin

Fletch said...

WRONG! (x2)

I'm waiting a few hours and then posting the answers. JSR has a commanding lead right now, anyway, and I don't see anyone catching that 3 spot.

Bob Turnbull said...

1. Fight Club
9. Talk Radio
13. Mission Impossible

JacksSmirkingRevenge said...

9. The Informant
10. Half Baked

Fletch said...

Another one for JSR - 10 is Half Baked.

If that doesn't seal the deal, nothing will. Here are the remaining answers:

1. The Saint
4. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
6. The Rock
7. Demolition Man
9. Pump Up the Volume
13. Three Kings

Bob Turnbull said...

Dammit! Uh, I mean, well-played JSR...

At least I was somewhat close with number 9. You know, radio and all.

Good one with #6.

That was great, dude. I'm limbering up my synapses for the next one.
