Zap2it.com is probably my favorite site for online TV listings, even though some of their program synopses range from being just plain totally WRONG, to being absolutely (and, I would assume, unintentionally) hilarious in their attempt at achieving both brevity and straightforwardness.

Case in point -- their synopsis of the movie TREMORS:

"Four big worms with multiple tongues dig high-speed around people in the middle of nowhere."

Short, to the point (well, sorta...it still manages to mangle the fact that the worms DEVOUR people rather than digging around them), and it totally cracks me up every time I see it listed...

I guess it helps that I absolutely LOVE the entire TREMORS franchise...all 4 movies plus the short-lived Sci-Fi channel series.

And I'm not ashamed to admit it. Posted Image

Linda,

My kids and I are huge fans of the Tremors franchise as well. I usually only admit this through the anonymity of an online forum though.....Posted Image

Jaws - "Shark scares and eats swimmers"
Independence Day - "Aliens blow up earth's landmarks so they can consume earth's resources"
Terminator - "Killer robot comes from the future to kill single mother"

It's easy if you try. Posted Image

"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."

Or how about this description of "The Wizard of Oz":

"A girl meets three strangers in search of missing vital organs."

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

Somebody here has a better one in his sig -- along the lines of "Arriving in a strange country, a girl kills the first woman she meets, and sets off in the company of three strangers to kill again."
