Voiceover:

A mad scientist playing God...
A hero trying to save the world...
A father preparing his sons to take on the ultimate evil...

Cut to a shaky free-falling skydiving scene:

Four men plummeting through the sky immediately after a huge explosion raining debris and fire all around them, gun play, etc.

Pan from face to face in rapid motion, with a long pause on each face as the voice over continues:

Arnold Schwarzenegger...
Danny DeVito...
Eddie Murphy...
and Jackie Chan...

Quads! Coming this fall to theaters everywhere.

The story of a brilliant geneticist who combines the DNA of four perfect female specimens [note the babe angle]...

You see where I'm going. Get yer tickets now.

Thats funny, Borys Kit accidentally submitted his story to The Hollywood Reporter instead of The Onion. Honest mistake, really.

Amen Brother..... This movie will suck donkey d**k WITHOUT LeBeouf. Although..... with LeBeouf it could rate in the top ten WORST movies ever (In other words.... become a profitable cult classic).

If you really want to stink it up in that way, reunite the entire cast of Friends as the evildoers, with David Schwimmer as the one-time leader of the evildoers who came to realize the evil of his ways and fathered the quints AS THE ONLY HOPE OF SAVING THE WORLD!

Greymalkin: If I recall the premise of the first film correctly, Arnie was genetic perfection and Danny was what was left.

So what does that make Eddie?


The black guy.

MadSkillz: No. This never happened, was never announced, greenlit, or filmed. I will go to my deathbed not acknowledging it.

I has a sad now.

In reality, though, it is too risky. Studios know the cost and profit of plot X with actors A, B, and C, so while it's not groundbreaking they make money and that's all they care about.

What are the profits of an H.P. Lovecraft movie? Nobody knows, and a movie like that can cost $200+ million. If you don't know you'll turn a profit that's a big risk for a studio to take. If a movie is critically acclaimed but can only get a handful of nerds in the seats, to Hollywood it's a bust, no matter how awesome the movie is.

Yeah, this movie is so formulaic they can have the iScript2000 spit it out and they can calculate the minimum returns down to the penny. Vs a nerd property that will only make money if it is good, and maybe not even then.

I'd see it, liking the original, but i forget what made it work... I mean, i get they are twins despite being physically different, but what else was there to it that set it apart from any other comedy?

Nothing. Typical 80s 'dissimilar people forced together' comedy.

The thing is, a sequel would lack the conflict of the original and wouldn't have the same things going for it.

/never understood Ahnold's comedies. He is a terrible comedic actor. The best comedy he made was True Lies, and that was a comedy like Star Wars is a horror film.

There isn't a face or palm in this world big enough to justify the amount of fail going on here.

Fano: Mugato: They're really strip-mining the 1980s now aren't they? This, Midnight Run, RoboCop, 21 Jump Street, Red Dawn, Total Recall (1990 but lets not split hairs) and the list goes on.

At least some of these are remakes and spare the embarrassment of actors pushing their 70s reprising roles from 25+ years ago.

Bring on Flight of the Navigator, Mac and Me, Solarbabies, and Gleaming the Cube!


I'm not going to lie, a revised Flight of the Navigator would be awesome to see.

I don't know why, but I have a nostalgic soft spot for Solarbabies. Perhaps there's a medication...

Eddie Murphy would not star in Daddy Day Camp the horrible sequel to Daddy Day Care. So obviously the guy has standards.

Yes Hollywood, the reason movie revenues are down is because of bootleg DVD's. Rolls eyes.

Well, at least it doesn't (yet) have Ben Stiller in it.

So we've got that going for us. Which is nice.

God, Solarbabies was just awful. The title was so bad I had to rent it. Ooooohhhhh, bad move.

Faddy: Hector Remarkable: I love it.
But get me some younger actors. Arnold, Danny, Eddie - you're out.
Sorry, geezers, we're on a budget here; you don't own the franchise.
(And in the next movie, Quadruplets, it turns out the black guy has a twin brother! sister, played by the same actor but in drag Hilarious!)

FTFY


make the sister fat, this film must have a fat suit
 
2012-03-31 10:23:55 AM
I heard Murphy loves the fat suits because he can drop a deuce on set and thinks nobody notices.
 
2012-04-01 07:14:40 AM
I'm absolutely certain that I've seen this done as a Photoshop joke (probably on Cracked or Something Awful), but I can't seem to find it anywhere.
