A Night At Any Movie

There could conceivably come a point, where every idea for a movie has already been tried, thus we would begin to see what amount to warmed-over versions of movies seen before. Or, as Allahpundit at Hot Air puts it: “Now that Hollywood’s moved to a business model based on recycling, a flick like this may simply be the next logical step.”

And so we are introduced to Brian McElhaney and Nick Kocher, two guys who met in Atlanta, who “decided that they didn’t want to use the knowledge and experience they garnered in college for anything but creating short stupid videos that would make them laugh.”

And so was born.

You will witness a string of scenarios that could have been in any movie released in the last five years. There is no dialogue, only generic references to the type of dialogue that would take place in that particular scene. The trick is to come up with your own. The result might not be unlike some of the installments in our FAMW series.

So, if you and the guys are just sitting around, and have exhausted your supply of video games and have watched Princess Mononoke (もののけ姫) for the nth time, you could try adding a laugh track to this piece of work, and put it up on YouTube.

The boys at would be proud. Or they'd sue. Whatever.
