It Is My Duty To Sicken You

Here are some titles and loglines of scripts which have sold recently.

Title: Untitled Heist Project
Log Line: Two ordinary blue-collar guys dream of pulling off the perfect heist.

The Pilot
Log Line: An airline pilot is charged with sexual harassment and is forced to become a cabin steward in order to learn gender sensitivity.

Title: Duck for President
Log Line: A duck is thrust into the limelight when his effort to save his farm leads him to run for U.S. President.

Title: I Know What You Did Last Summer 3
Log Line: A group of teenagers believe they accidentally killed a man only to discover that the would-be victim is now out to kill them. (isn't this the first one?)

Title: Road House 2
Log Line: A tough bouncer is hired to tame a dirty bar.

Some big hitters there! Box office records will be smashed! Now, if this doesn't make you write, nothing will. Hollywood is ripe for the picking.

Loglines are an unsatisfactory way of summing up a movie's potential. Take the first logline on your list. Nothing orginal about it -- but then neither was the logline to Reservoir Dogs. I find loglines only really work when they're for high concept movies. Uggggggggggggh.

I hate loglines. But one wonders what makes a big time exec think any of these are good ideas. If they turn out great...I'll be surprised.

just add a sadistic slasher to all stories and sell as the B-film at the Drive-In (oh yeah, is there any Drive-Ins left?)

Already happened twice.
