Poorly described plots (seven words or fewer)


#4343

Falling Down
Planes Trains and Automobiles
Adventures in Babysitting

Thanks @MinuteWalt


#4344

That’s just part of my unpaid job, @skeletor! :rofl:


#4345

I’m going to add another clue too.

They don’t know the meaning of "Verbotten"


#4346

Like, they literally don’t know? Or figuratively?

I’ll just throw out Inglourious Basterds


#4347

Inglourious Basterds

Sadly not, but the right genre.


#4348

Oh, gosh, is this a TV show? I should have said Hogan’s Heroes!

(EDIT: I mean, c’mon! That totally works!)


#4349

Inglourious Basterds
Hogan’s Heros

Perhaps broadly the right genre might be less misleading…


#4350

Inglourious Basterds
Hogan’s Heroes

Can I ask: do they literally not know the meaning of Verbotten, or do they just don’t care about what is forbidden?

(EDIT:
One of those situations is a comedy, the other one a historical film. Possibly both!)


#4351

Certainly the latter, but a remark is made (jokingly) towards the former.


#4352

@Boydesian might get this, I need to think about it for a while.


#4353

Falling Down
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Adventures in Babysitting

I am going to guess that Mad Max 2 is not correct. I also think that Castaway isn’t correct, nor is Terminal. (I’m really good at not giving right answers, but that still fit! I just suck at the rest of it.)


#4354

Behind Enemy Lines ?


#4355

Adventures in Babysitting (the Elisabeth Shue one)

Edit Breakdown might not mean car breakdown, but mental breakdown.


#4356

I think that was the basis of the Falling Down guess.


#4357

You are absolutely right! None of those are correct!

Nope!

It is definitely neither the original nor remake of Adventures in Babysitting :slight_smile:

Falling Down
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Adventures in Babysitting (original or remake)
Mad Max 2
Castaway
Terminal
Behind Enemy Lines

Perhaps another clue?

Her predicament brings her back to earth with a thud


#4358

My Stepmother is an Alien?


#4359

I’ve gotten so used to that by now.

Anyway, RECAP!


Falling Down
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Adventures in Babysitting (original or remake)
Mad Max 2
Castaway
Terminal
Behind Enemy Lines

That’s a good answer.
(Ten words in the additional clue, though @skeletor. Acceptable, though, because none of us really care.)

Has anyone guessed Wonder Woman yet? (quick review…nope)

I think when @FunkJem or my answers are accounted for, we need @skeletor to give it up. It’s a list of nine guesses, so far (I think).


#4360

Person struggles to get home after breakdown

Her predicament brings her back to earth with a thud

Neither My Stepmother is an Alien, nor Wonder Woman are correct

Falling Down
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Adventures in Babysitting (original or remake)
Mad Max 2
Castaway
Terminal
Behind Enemy Lines
My Stepmother is an alien
Wonder Woman

Forgive the indulgence, but I will give one final clue before giving up the answer.

This film’s director has been nominated for best Director (for a different film) at the upcoming Academy Awards. That’s certainly more than 7 words!


#4361

So that would make the film in question Gravity?


#4362

You are correct! Your prize is this bovine statue I dug up at the seaside. It’s a Sandy Bullock.
