Here's a cool game that came right from an episode of the TV show Stacked:

Take the title of a film, TV show, book, play, musical, video game, etc. etc. and change only one letter to create a COMPLETLEY new title...then write a brief synopsis of this new title.

For example:
Lord of the Rinks: Frodo and his hobbit friends skate their way into Mordor to take on Saurons team of orcs, in a sudden death ice hockey game!!

Panic Roof: When thieves break into her house, Jodi Foster climbs the fire escape to the roof of her home...only to find out that there is no way off!!!

Good ones so far - Yeah, I could go on and on. I have a ton more, but I'll let others take a stab.

Here are a few more:

Planet of the Ales: Charlton Heston (in a drunken voice): "Get your DAMN hands ON me.....you SEXY monkey beast!!! hick!"

and my personal favorite:


Harry Kotter: Gabe Kaplan plays a wise-cracking wizard who is forced to teach a bunch of remedial wizards when Hogwarts School of Witchcraft has to expand its facilities into Brooklyn New York.....Can anybody say "The Sweathogwarts?" Posted Image
