The Dude That Does Stuff Movie Plot Game #8

Last Week's Results: JacksSmirkingRevenge...again (4th straight), this time with 4 points. As Inigo Montoya said to the Man in Black, "Who are you?"

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.

1. Dudes just keep happening upon stuff.
2. Dudette thinks bad stuff is happening. But it isn't...or is it?
3. Dudes go away to get away from bad stuff.
4. Dudette dreams up some weird stuff.
5. Dude and dudette fight about inane stuff.
6. Dudes think stuff is fake, but it's not.
7. Dude tried to hide stuff for a long, long time. No longer.
8. Little dude sees stuff.
9. Dudes and dudettes are afraid of stuff, but their fears are unfounded.
10. Dude is really good at throwing stuff.
11. Two dudettes bitch about stuff.
12. Dude gets drunk and stuff.
13. Dude can't see stuff no more.
14. Dudes see a whole lot of stuff that ain't there.
15. Dude sees stuff that others can't even though others see stuff that he can't.

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

4. Pan's Labyrinth
11. The Business Of Strangers
12. The Lost Weekend

Fletch said...

Ok, Bob ticked off one more (Pan's).

Here are some clues for the remaining plots:

1. Hard to give much of a clue here. 90s flick. Two guys star.

2. The Gothika guess wasn't bad, and The Net guess was out there, yet somehow kinda warm.

5. Nick's THe Break Up guess was pretty warm.

7. Don't think of what the dude was hiding as a physical thing, and you'll be much closer to the truth.

10. Get away from baseball and then realize that this one's really pretty easy. Nick was warm with one of his guesses.

11. A sure-to-be turrible movie that I'll never watch. Came out in the last few years.

12. Some good guesses, you all just haven't hit it yet.

15. Like 10, I think this one's easy. Just read it carefully.

Bob Turnbull said...

2. The Forgotten
7. Liar Liar
11. The Hottie and The Nottie?
12. Days Of Wine And Roses

Jason Soto said...

1. Friday
7. Nick and Norah's Infinate Playlist

That's all I got.

Nick said...

5. Forgetting Sarah Marshall?
11. Bride Wars?

JacksSmirkingRevenge said...

2. Premonition
10. Dodgeball

Fletch said...

Bob, Jason - WRONG!

Nick, JSR - one correct from each of ya.

As is, Nick leads Jason 3-2, with a few other stragglers with one apiece.

Jason Soto said...

Only other thing I can think of for 1 is Dumb and Dumber.

Fletch said...

And Dumb and Dumber would be exactly right. :D

Anonymous said...

15. Fight Club

Nick said...

12. Legend of the Drunken Master or Old School?

Nick said...

Oh, or Hancock (for 12).

JacksSmirkingRevenge said...

5. Money Pit
7. Unbreakable
10. Gangs of New York

Fletch said...

Putting up the newest one in a bit. Here are the unanswered ones from last week:

5. Revolutionary Road
7. A History of Violence
10. V For Vendetta
12. Bad Santa
15. Daredevil

I thought Daredevil was the easiest out of those.

We end in a tie between Nick and Jason. Thanks to all for your guesses.
