Describe the Plot of Your Favorite Movie - in 5 Words

The Academy Awards Twitter account tweeted yesterday asking people to give the plot of their favorite movies in only five words.    Could you summarize the dialogue and scenes from your favorite movie into a short five word phrase?

A number of people called in with their's on today's Y Morning Wake-Up, including

Love Found on Summer Break - for "Dirty Dancing"

Kill Him Twice, Enjoy It - for "Double Jeopardy"

Two Men Tango in Russia  - for "White Nights"

Here are some of my favorites from Twitter:

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE – Apparently the mission was possible

GROUNDHOG DAY – Same day over and over

JAWS – Amity means friendship, shark disagrees  OR   Shark ignores size of boat

STAR WARS – Rebel scum has Daddy issues

E.T. – Alien meets boy, goes home

TITANIC – unsinkable ship actually very sinkable

THE SHINING – Family bonds during Colorado staycation

LORD OF THE RINGS - Little person returns stolen jewelry

WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY - Candy factory seeks new management       

THE BREAKFAST CLUB - Five students share morning detention

THE SIXTH SENSE - Man doesn’t know he’s dead

Ever actor/director Ron Howard played along:


"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in case you weren't able to figure it out.     Add your 5 word summary on The Academy twitter account ...
