The Power of Imagination


Hey kids!  Let’s play “Make it Better!”  Here’s how:  First, we take a look at this production still:

Now we pretend that it isn’t from the upcoming Little Fockers, a movie that may officially be a bigger cash grab than Night at the Museum 2: Battle for the Smithsonian (current Critical End! cash grab champ), but instead from a better movie that we make up to work through the pain.  I’ll start!

Robert De Niro and his son Ben Stiller haven’t always gotten along, but when Robert De Niro’s ski resort hits hard times, he guilts Ben Stiller into coming back to Colorado to help out the family business.  But everything’s turned upside down when Ben Stiller is injured in a freak avalanche and loses his memory!  Now, Robert De Niro must take Ben Stiller on a wacky cross-country road trip, visiting every contact in Ben Stiller’s phone in a desperate attempt to help his son remember his life.

The above still is from the pivotal scene in which the pair visit Harvey Keitel, a small-time jewel thief with whom Robert De Niro is shocked to learn Ben Stiller was working.  And boy is Harvey Keitel mad about all the jewels Ben Stiller doesn’t remember stealing from him!  Coming this Thanksgiving:  Pieces of Cake.

I forgot to mention their last name in the movie is Cake.  Also, Owen Wilson co-stars as a Sears mannequin.  Your turn!
