RE: Terrible One Sentence Plot Summaries
Does it have to be a Sci-fi movie? I'm an old movie buff so I'll go back to some old classics.

Rear Window:

Frustrated man in wheelchair becomes peeping tom.


Gone With the Wind:

Scarlett becomes creative with curtains and finally learns to give a damn.


Casablanca:

Ricks gets involved with Bergman and bourbon. Piano man sings song over and over again.


Ten Commandments:

After long trip Moses finally knows what to do with his long staff. Makes Yvonne de Carlo very happy.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
