Guess The Movie From The Plot Description Part 3 (No Google)

Last edited Tue May 29, 2018, 12:16 PM - Edit history (2)

Same as the other 2 threads. I'll post a few movies and guess what they are from the plot description. Try to do it without using Google or IMDB.

1. After New York City's two most celebrated police officers die in an unfortunate accident, a comptroller and his partner investigating lottery corruption vow to become their replacements.

2. Two down on their luck businessmen are in over their heads when they land a gargantuan government contract that requires them to run weapons between battle zones.

3. While the rest of the professional baseball world is off fighting World War 2, the league hatches a scheme to attract new fans by allowing female competitors to run the teams.

4. Three strong willed sisters come together to bout heads with their equally strong willed mother after they are sick and tired of her increasingly reckless behavior.

5. An unhinged stock trader and his equally unhinged partner start a stock trading empire out of their garage and it becomes a hotbed of sex, drugs, booze, and other shady activities.

6. A biological surveyor studying mythical creatures arrives in New York City and finds that his research has been accidentally let loose among the populace.

7. After asking her husband to wear a dress and fill in for a missing portrait model, she gets the shock of her life when he begins living as a member of the opposite sex.

8. On the way to their next gig, a group of drag queens get stranded in a rural community and turn the lives of the residents upside down.

9. A trash talking, big city law school graduate must come to the aid of his relatives who are mistaken for a murderer while on a road trip in the south, while he brings along his sharp-tongued fiancee.

10. After their former captain is murdered in a senseless attack on fleet headquarters, the captain of the starship vows revenge while finding out that his superiors may be up to foul play when mysterious torpedoes show up.

11. Two children find an ancient looking board game and must finish the game started many decades ago when they find that each turn has devastating, real world destructive consequences.

12. The billionaire heiress to an archaeological fortune must use her family history to help her navigate a series of previously unexplored and potentially deadly ancient ruins.

15. sorry, but that can't be correct

either for the original, the space remake (Zathura, A Space Adventure) , or the newly created remake ( Jumanji, Welcome to the Jungle )

In the original, Alan Parrish ( son of a local businessman ) and his friend Sarah Wittle play the board game that he found... he gets trapped in the game until orphans Peter and his sister Judy play the game and by rolling an 8 release peter now 25 years later.

No accountants... and no "parents" play the game ( Peter and Judy are unrelated to Alan or Sarah ).
