The Dude That Does Stuff Movie Plot Game #13

Last Week's Results: Well, he didn't get knocked off the podium at all, but JSR will have to share the spoils of victory this time, as he tied with Jess for the lead with 3 points each. 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.

1. Dudes do stuff they never thought they'd do.
2. Dude watches others do stuff.
3. Dude listens to others do stuff.
4. Dude makes up a lot of stuff.
5. Dude is the best at taking stuff.
6. Little dude needs a bigger dude to help him do stuff.
7. Dudes pretend to do stuff together.
8. Dude and dudette do stuff...and then suffer the consequences.
9. Dude doesn't remember that he did stuff.
10. Dude can do all the stuff he ever dreamed of.
11. People watch dude do stuff.
12. Big dude teaches little dudes stuff...but he's the one that learns.

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

Is this a 2009 edition again? Or did you forgetto erase that part from the last game?

Fletch said...

I most certainly did (forget to erase last week's hint). This is NOT a 2009-only edition. Sorry aboot that. Looks like Justin is really the only victim here, though.

None right thus far.

Justin said...

And who cares about that guy?!?!

Haha. . .

9. Any of the Bourne films. . . I'd lean towards the first (Identity) since it starts everything.

Fletch said...

Most impressive, Paul. You seem to have tapped into my brain a bit (I feel violated). Only 2 out of the 4 guesses correct (still a high %), but Hudson Hawk was a very Fletch-ish guess as well, even though it's not correct.

You now hold a commanding 4-2 lead over Fitz with 4 plots remaining.
