I'm like Ed Wood meets Emeric Pressburger!

"It's like 'Cinema Paradiso' meets 'It's a Wonderful Life'!"

"It's like "Pretty Woman' meets 'Notting Hill' for teens!"

Ugh. Those two quotes come from a New York Times article on the low-budget film market. (What does that second quote even mean?)

If it's that easy to get a film made, I humbly suggest the following ideas:

It's like "The Sound of Music" meets "The Dirty Dozen"!

It's like "Jaws" meets "Deep Throat"!

It's like "Clueless" meets "Emma"!

It's like "Gone With the Wind" meets "There's Something About Mary"!

It's like "Die Hard" meets "Die Hard II"!

It's like "SpongeBob SquarePants" meets "The Virgin Spring"!

If any of these get made, I demand 10% of the gross, plus points. Whatever that means.

Wasn't Clueless a modern version of Emma? So, really Cluelss meets Pride and Prejudice is not so unlikely. Let's collaborate on a script -- wait, maybe a blog collaboration on a movie script is just the thing for the movie script. It's like You've Got Mail meets 2001: A Space Oddessy.

Yeesh! You're right! I was thinking "Pride and Prejudice" for some reason. Which really ruins the joke.

I'm fixing it...

Er... for the record, that was me, not my dog, Freddie.

It's like Meet Me In St. Louis meets Meet John Doe.

Does Judy Garland jump off the building at the end?
