The Wizard of Oz: Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again.
So, with a nod to the ultimate spinners in the White House (nobody can obfuscate like them), and in the spirit of Friday fun, I decided to come up with a few of my own:
The Godfather: a World War II veteran returns home to New York to help his aging father run the family business.
Jaws: an oceanographer, a cop, and a crotchety old salt team up to try to land the biggest fish in the waters around a small New England town.
Dr. Zhivago: a respected city doctor destroys his marriage and family in pursuit of a high-society harlot.
The Exorcist: when therapy and discipline prove insufficient, a frustrated mother finally turns to her priest for help in counseling her misbehaving daughter.
Caddyshack: caught in the middle of a conflict between a corrupt judge, a menacing groundskeeper, and two eccentric millionaires, a confused young man struggles to maintain his identity.
