What fictional movies do you wish actually existed?

#1

Post by blocho » August 21st, 2019, 4:57 pm

I was watching the Seinfeld episode last night where the gang ends up seeing Rochelle, Rochelle ("One woman's strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk"), and I started wondering about other fictional movies that I wish actually existed.

So the challenge is to list every fictional movie that appears in a show/movie/miniseries/etc. that you would definitely see if it actually existed.

Here's my brief list:
Rochelle, Rochelle (Seinfeld) - Obviously
Sack Lunch (Seinfeld) - Did they get shrunk or are they in a giant sack?
Aquaman (Entourage) - I feel like James Cameron could do something with this
Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) - I'm pretty sure I would like this more than the first Good Will Hunting
Scorcher (Tropic Thunder) - The first in Tugg Speedman's six-part franchise
Thunder Gun Express (It's Always Sunny) - No Hesitation. No Surrender.

It's hard to remember stuff like this. Thanks for reminding me about Good Will Hunting 2. Giggled again. I love what Damon and Affleck were doing there.

You're interpreting the question as what fictional world do you wish existed? Now that's also a great question. I definitely support a world in which Sean Connery walks around in a red diaper and giant stone heads fly through the air.

When I was 11 years old in summer camp, the video production kids did an unauthorized sequel/mash-up called Forrest Dump: With a Vengeance. I don't remember much about it. They also did a Terminator 3, which I believe may have been better than the actual Terminator 3 that showed up several years later.

I remember wishing Headless from Found was real, but they did end up making that into a film.. can’t think of any others off the top of my head.

Terrance & Phillip: Asses of Fire (from the South Park movie) - it did cause the Canadian-American War after all.

You mentioned Always Sunny...I wanna see a feature-length version of their Lethal Weapon 5. Also, from that one episode where Charlie and Mac come up with a movie idea where Dolph Lundgren plays a scientist who can "smell crime"...I mean come on, everyone would wanna see that. But I'd leave out Dennis' suggestion that the sex scenes between Dolph and his lab assistant should show full penetration. I'm with Charlie on that one, that would just be too uncomfortable, haha.
I’m to remember every man I've seen fall into a plate of spaghetti???

Hehehe... I saw that one, though that's pretty much the opposite of the Family Guy version. :circle:

The latest issue of Film Comment had an article about fictional movies in literature. The article mentioned the novel "The Book of Illusions" by Paul Auster (one of my favorites), which includes the fictional story of a silent era film comedian named Hector Mann, a screen legend on the level of Chaplin/Keaton/Lloyd. Auster constructs an entire life story around Mann, including a series of fictional movies. One of those movies was called "The Inner Life of Martin Frost" and Auster later made a real movie by that name, though its plot bares no relation to the fictional version.
