The Dude That Does Stuff Movie Plot Game #11

Last Week's Results: Jack's Smirking Revenge returns (with a vengeance? No...) to the top of the leader board, with four correct answers; see last week's comments section for the answers.

The concept is overwhelmingly simple; below are 12 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.

1. Dudes are paranoid of other dudes.
2. Dude helps other dude do stuff.
3. Little dude likes stuff just a little too much.
4. Dudes and dudette run away from invisible stuff.
5. Dudes do stuff badly...until motivated properly.
6. Dudes do stuff badly...until motivated properly.
7. Dudes do stuff badly...until motivated properly.
8. Dudes do stuff badly...until motivated properly.
9. Dude does stuff badly. Period.
10. Dude does crazy stuff until sane dude lends him a hand.
11. Dudette makes stuff real good. And quirky.
12. Dude is in love with fake stuff.

No, that's not a typo. I have four different movies in mind for numbers 5-8. Don't worry about the numbers so much, just guess the movies correctly and you'll get 'em. One of them you will likely not guess...

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

Ok, I'm finally back to update this. As expected, you guys and gals nailed 3/4 from the 5-8 section. Good luck with the last one - I'll give you a hint: those that were thinking outside the sports box were on the right track. And yes, Jack's, you just barely missed Bad News Bears.

THN - good to hear. I've still been reading, but am obviously not as vocal.
