The Dude That Does Stuff Movie Plot Game #12

Last Week's Results: Different week, same result. Jack's Smirking Revenge win's his 6th week out of 11 and has 400% more win shares than the next highest player. Jack, it's almost time for you to present one of these to see how well I do. See the last game'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. Bonus hint: this is a special 2009-only edition; every flick was released last year.

1. Dudette does stuff the same way as other dudette.
2. Dudette makes friends with some weird dudes.
3. Dude makes friends with a crazy dude.
4. Dudette makes enemies with a crazy, weird dudette.
5. Dudes do stuff that you can't even see them doing.
6. Dude and Dudette out-stuff each other.
7. Dudettes learn about life and stuff.
8. Dude and dudette fear stuff.
9. Dude has a sleazy dude for a friend.
10. Dudes did...stuff.
11. Dude does battle with stuff.
12. Dudette goes looking for stuff but never really finds it.



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.

Jess - that's better. One more for ya.

Jack - I know there aren't many (any?) hard and fast rules about this game, but I must say that I disapprove of up to 6 guesses at a time for one plot, even though I can appreciate the time spent on the guesses. Let's stick to one or two at a time, por favor.

That said, the Dude/Stuff Game Gods punished you for your verbosity, granting you only one correct answer from that entire list, whereas your lone guess in the comment that preceded it was also correct. Hmmm....

:D
