Poorly described plots (seven words or fewer)


#4323

Ooh, I know, it’s every book ever written by David Eddings! The book covers were probably different colours. Same damn plot every time. I admit I stopped reading after the third time (fool me twice, shame on me), so it’s not impossible that he wrote a different story at some point in the intervening decades, but I have strong doubts.

(I admit I may be veering off-topic… and it also turns out that he’s dead, so now I feel slightly awkward about this – but it’s still true, darn it.)


#4324

Astonished to discover I haven’t yet given a clue with this as the answer.


#4325

Run Lola Run


#4326

Gods, no! Minus 50 points just for suggesting it! :stuck_out_tongue:


#4327

No, but I see where you are going with it. No, the plot given is intended for a single film.


#4328

Where’s the slap button on this thing? You are getting hysterical.

Nope


#4329

#4330

This is exactly the scene I was thinking of when I wrote that! Thanks for posting it.


#4331

I feel back on topic now!

Creed?


#4332

Now that’s a good guess!

Wrong. But a good guess.


#4333

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse?


#4334

I am afraid not.

Hint: Protagonost defeats snow and sky, but ultimately falls from following the way of sword.


#4335

Hero?


#4336

I knew that hint was too much of a giveaway. Correct! Your prize is a wire team who can make it appear as if you can glide through the air, but only in yiur own home where they’ve rigged up all the necessary equipment.


#4337

We seem to be dry here. How about:

Person struggles to get home after breakdown


#4338

Falling Down?


#4339

I have to say that was a great answer, even if it was wrong. I also suspect you may have seen that episode of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.


#4340

I like Falling Down as an answer, Michal Douglas is almost unrecognizable, it’s a hell of a role. (It reminds me of the Coen’s A Serious Man in a few ways).

But I’m going to guess Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
EDIT: I take that back, Adventures in Babysitting!

Honestly, I could do this all day. But I won’t, so I’ve deleted the next few I thought of (I had them spoiler-texed, but then I was like “why?”). Adventures is my current guess.

It’s a pretty common plot device, and I’m still trying to figure out how @skeletor thinks.

(Don’t worry, I can’t figure out how any of you think. I don’t know why I started this thread, I suck at this.)


#4341

Not Falling Down, nor Planes, Trains and Automobiles, nor even Adventures in Babysitting!

Edit: not sure how to do strikethroughs! XD


#4342

Strikethroughs:

Easiest way is to do double tildes on each end, or you can do an angled bracket with a closed tag…let me just show you…
Both the words below will have a strikethrough if you type them like that:

~~strike~~ 

<s>strike</s>

I’ve done it both ways below:

strike
