Poorly described plots (seven words or fewer)


#3860

Correct! You win a small sack of sand.


#3861

Man’s girlfriend plays his fake girlfriend

(and I’ve now thought of another film which fits this much better than the film I’m actually thinking of, so I’ll have a prize ready for that one too.)

(and in case it saves anyone the bother – I’ve just checked back, and this is the only active clue at present.)


#3862

Gigli


#3863

Not Gigli, and I’ll clarify the clue in that the playing the fake girlfriend is not a precursor to becoming the girlfriend.


#3864

A: Clue #1:
Gene therapy for millions of people


#3865

Gattaca?


#3866

No, not Gattaca.

I meant to see that film, and never did. I really should do so at some point.


#3867

Just for larks, I’m going to start giving clues for the other film as well : )

B: Man’s girlfriend plays his fake girlfriend
B: Clue #1:
Mistaken for herself


#3868

Pretty Woman?


#3869

Not Pretty Woman (nor any other Pygmalion); but a nice guess.


#3870

Clue #2:
A: Learning to talk for the first time


#3871

B: Clue #2:
Returning from the ashes. Reconstructed.


#3872

A: Clue #3:
Making the best of the bad weather


#3873

B: Clue #3:
The plot for film B is more specifically: Man’s wife plays his fake wife


#3874

The Girl with All the Gifts? - seems to fit all but the girlfriend clue
or
Warm Bodies? - seems to fit all but the gene therapy clue


#3875

Nice – I saw that one recently. But as you say it doesn’t fit the initial clue.

I’ve not seen it, so I’m afraid it’s not that either; but I’ll add that the Gene therapy clue is not about the plot.


#3876

A: Final Clue:
Broadway Melody revival


#3877

B: Final Clue:
Set in Berlin in the immediate aftermath of WW2


#3878

The good German?

Now that I see it, great clues.
