Weekend Discussion Thread: Make Your Own Buddy Picture/Chick Flick

Okay this one’s a little out there, but I think you’re up to the challenge from Andrew, who opines:

I was watching “Is This Love?” the other night and had a thought. If you got Peg from this short, Judy from “Young Man’s Fancy”, and Sue from “Are You Ready for Marriage” together, I bet they’d have a lot to talk about. You’d have someone who married too soon, someone who is engaged, and someone who has just fallen for her brother’s friend. That’s a chick flick if there ever was one. But why stop there? Wouldn’t Ator’s level-headedness be the perfect compliment for Steve Reeve’s Hercules’ arrogance and wouldn’t a TON of villages be saved by those two together? Finally, what about Peter Graves from “Beginning of the End” teaming up with the female cop from “Swamp Diamonds” as a kind of Mulder and Scully “X-files” thing? Endless possibilities!

How about new version of Charlie’s Angels with the bubble-headed Tina from “Catalina Caper,” boy-crazy Judy from “A Young Man’s Fancy” and sensible but mousey Iris from “The Beatniks”?

Well, maybe not. You have a go at it!

    Yes, let me reinforce PALADIN’s statement. Iris from The Beatniks was Tony’s trashy boozy girlfriend of ‘shut up Iris’ fame. She was neither sensible nor mousey. And that’s the way I like her.

    ….”That Helen is not like us, baby… She`ll never do for you like I will, Eddy, honey”….

    “Shut up, Iris!”

    Looking at the posts, it seems to me that between my idea (#4), Depressing Aunt’s idea (#31), Fred Burroughs’ idea (#33), and Rockfish’s idea (#37), we’ve just put together one entire evening of programming for Lifetime.

    What’s the address for their programming department?
