we call this "spam"  
Movies whose plots remind me of fan-fiction:

Face/Off
Regarding Henry

At the moment my brain only has a list of two. But you guys could list some, yeah? Please?

ETA: TV reminds me of that Jet Li movie coming out soon, Unleashed, which also looks incredibly fan-fictiony to me.

Grease 2, also known as "every Spuffy high school AU ever"
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 12:54 am (UTC)
Hee. Isn't that the one with Michelle Pfeiffer? She actually looked better once she got a few more years on her.

Can't Hardly Wait - All the character are brought together to air out their grievances and begin the romantic pairings the author think should happen.
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 12:56 am (UTC)
Hmm, interesting--I've never heard anyone talk about that movie before. But I see it has Seth Green!

There's a movie called Latter Days, about a Mormon missionary who falls for a gay waiter in West Hollywood-- I watched it with a bunch of slashers last weekend, and we decided it needs a slash cliche drinking game.
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 01:05 am (UTC)
Ooh, cool. And you just reminded me of an obscure-ish one in that vein, "The Living End." You should watch that someday if you haven't seen it. ;)

Frantic is an urban legend.

Haunted Mansion. I watched it and thought "this feels awfully familiar." I talked it over with my sister, and we both reached illumination at the same time: I had written the story as a ST:TOS Saavik-Sue back around 1982. Right down to "Dead guy (vampire) wants his long lost wife back."

Slipstream is Huckleberry Finn set after the apocalypse, with a British robot servant instead of a black slave, and Huck all grown up to be Bill Paxton. They sail a river of wind, visit various enclaves, and always with a slaver-catcher lawman on their tail.
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 01:08 am (UTC)
Ahh, Frantic--I haven't seen that in years. That might be a good one to watch again sometime soon. I hadn't heard of Slipstream at all--Mark Hamill, huh? *g*

Pretty Woman. *g*
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 03:43 am (UTC)
Oh my god, yes. *g* I can't remember--do you watch Alias? Because we just rewatched the pilot, where Will is bemoaning his blind date and Sydney asks, "How bad was it?" And he says, "You know what her favorite movie of all time is? Pretty Woman." And Syd's like, "I'm sure that's lots of people's favorite movies." Will: "Okay, yeah. Of all *time*? That includes like...well, every other movie ever made--all of them." Cracks me up. *g*

Freaky Friday. Except in fanfic, it wouldn't be mother and daughter, it would be people with love-hate relationships and there would be dirty touching.

Body switching- classic.
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 03:44 am (UTC)
Yes! Totally. Freaky Friday was one of my favorite childhood movies, probably laying down early mounds of rich soil in which were planted future fan-fiction kinks. *g* I liked the remake quite a lot too.
RivkaTrivkat on May 6th, 2005 02:06 am (UTC)
Heh. MustangSally & I were going to redo Face/Off with Krycek and Mulder. I think the plan was to put them in the Iolokus-verse, fifteen years down the line, so Krycek could touch the kids inappropriately as well as making time with Scully.

I don't have any movies to add; just wanted to say that.
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 03:45 am (UTC)
Oh, that would have been awesome. It really was an incredibly strange movie--and in terms of acting, it's like, battle of the has-been hams--but it's fascinating and cool too.
edgebotedgebot on May 6th, 2005 02:29 am (UTC)
Billy Elliot. I always thought the last scene was straight out of a Smallville type AU.
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 03:45 am (UTC)
I haven't seen that at all and don't know anything about it! I will put it on a mental shopping list. :)

It's bad that I saw the promos for Unleashed, and immediately thought "Ooohh, slave!fic crossover opportunities! wOot!" right? I'm so going to see that with one of those ridiculously huge drinks and a package of Twizzlers.
Anna S.eliade on May 6th, 2005 03:46 am (UTC)
Exactly. I nearly squeed out of my seat the fist time I saw the preview in the theater. *g*

Strangely enough, The Breakfast Club. They all are shoved together and forced to admit that they're pressured and realize stuff about each other, and then they all go away somewhat happy and looking forward to having a significant other except the nerdy guy, who is proabably gay anyway.

It's funny, but the first time I saw that whole movie (like a month ago) I thought that.

Another favourite of the AU Buffyverse authors!

Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid
Cabaret
The Mission
The Rundown
Lethal Weapon
Conan: The Barbarian

Anna S.eliade on May 7th, 2005 05:29 am (UTC)
Mmm, good ones. Lethal Weapon had the whole "crazy with grief" plotline, which I loved--the straitjacket thing! And I can't remember much about The Mission, which makes me want to watch it again.

Dude, as soon as I saw the preview for that Jet Li movie, I was like, "They're making slash into mainstream movies now?"

And then I realized that it probably doesn't actually have gay sex in it. :(
Anna S.eliade on May 7th, 2005 05:29 am (UTC)

"Never Been Kissed".

Mary-Sue much?
Anna S.eliade on May 7th, 2005 05:30 am (UTC)
Michael Vartan! He is the pin-up boy in my head at the moment. Sighhhh. Why don't I have an icon of him? That's a criminal oversight I'll have to rectify.
