The Dude That Does Stuff Movie Plot Game #9

Last Week's Results: Jason and Nick tied, with 3 points apiece. 5 plots went unanswered; see last week's comments section for the answers.

Sorry I couldn't get this up sooner. Long day. Also, cutting this down to 12 plots on a go-forward basis, but I'll try to make them slightly easier (harder than it sounds).

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 unsuccessfully try to figure out which dude is doing stuff.
2. Idiotic dude finds secret stuff.
3. Dude does stuff a little too good for his own good.
4. Dude hatches a plan to do stuff, then changes his mind.
5. If I can do stuff, and you can do stuff, all dudes can do stuff.
6. Dudes twirl stuff.
7. Dude more or less creates a place where dudes and dudettes go to do stuff.
8. Dudes and dudettes are stuck, unable to do stuff.
9. Dude finds something that lets him do magic stuff.
10. Dude is only the 2nd best at doing stuff.
11. Dude's not too great at doing stuff anymore, but he knows a thing or two.
12. Dude does stuff one last time before dying.

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

1. Hot Fuzz
3. The Natural
4. The Lookout
12. The Straight Story

Univarn said...

5. Rocky IV

so many of these sound so familiar but alas I can't put a finger on it :(

Castor said...

8. Stuck on You
12. The Bucket List

Fitz said...

2)The Man Who Knew Too Little?
3)Hot Fuzz?
7)Jurassic Park?

Fletch said...

Of all that, just 2 correct answers, but the really weird thing is that there were 2 guesses that were incorrect for the number guessed, yet those films appear somewhere else in the 12. One such case was JSR guessing Hot Fuzz for #1, when it was the answer for #3. The other case...I can't say yet.

Jason Soto said...

4. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
7. 54
11. Memento
12. Seven Pounds

Paul Arrand Rodgers said...

1. Clue

Nick said...

9. Shorts?
12. Rocky Balboa?

Nick said...

8. Breakfast Club

Fletch said...

Well, Nick not only was the only one that got one correct from that batch of guesses, but he got the one I was referring to earlier (the film that was named in the first wave of guesses for the wrong plot).

3-way tie for 1st! ;)

Justin said...

1. Inside man
2. Ace Ventura (1 or 2)
6. Drumline
7. Willy Wonka (or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
9. The Mask
10. Little Miss Sunshine

Fitz said...

1)LA Confidential?
4)Revolutionary Road?
12)Gran Torino?

Fletch said...

Already, two correct answers mixed in there. Just nabbed The Mask at #9, and Fitz, by getting #1 (Zodiac), has now taken a commanding lead, with 2 to Univarn, Nick and Justin's 1.

Here are some hints:

2. Pretty recent film. Big stars abound.
4. Made by the same filmmakers as #2.
6. C'mon - just one guess for this? I think it might be the easiest one. No additional help here.
7. Late 80s/early 90s historical drama starring a real-life couple.
10. Stars the same guy as #6.
11. One of the best sports films of all time.
12. Super recent documentary.

Fitz said...

11)Slap Shot/Bull Durham/Hoosiers?

JacksSmirkingRevenge said...

2. Burn after Reading
4. Fargo
11. The color of money
11. The longest yard

Fletch said...

Well, my large hints surely got a bunch of 'em outta the way. Fitz now holds a 4-3 lead over eternal champ JSR with 2 flicks left. This could get interesting...

JacksSmirkingRevenge said...

6. Swing Kids
10. The Prestige

Fitz said...

Shit I think Jack just got the last 2.

RC said...

Oh - I thought 6 was the Hudsucker Proxy.

Fitz said...

Well if 6 is Hudsucker Proxy
I guess

Tim Robbin's is the #2 station

JacksSmirkingRevenge said...

I thought Wes Mantooth worked at the #2 station.

Fletch said...

Fitz - lucky for you, you think wrong. JSR did not get the last two.

JacksSmirkingRevenge said...

6. The Cowboy Way
10. Kingpin

or maybe:
10. White men cant jump

Fitz said...

6)The Full Monty

Fletch said...

Unanswered plots:

6. Cocktail
10. Top Gun
