I can see the action as the plot unfurls in my mine. . . .
A couple meet when their respective Doxies get into a near-death match over a turf dispute. They fall in love as do the Doxies when they realize they can more than double their turf if they work together and have puppies.
Enter the Evil Cruella de Ville, who plans to open a fast food restaurant - Hot Doxies - serving what people think are spicey hot dogs but are really minced Doxie puppies (more tender since they haven't built up muscles battling that common nuisance, the badger).
One night de Ville's bumbling henchmen steal the Doxies' pups and what ensues is a hilarious chase movie set predominatly in an abattoir and fast food restaurant as the Doxies attempt to recover their pups and serve de Ville a just dessert to go with her Hot Doxies.
We'll keep the blood in the abattoir to a minimum so we don't blow our G rating.
Brainstrained, you might just be on to something re a Disney screenplay. Anything but a "G" rating would be the "wurst" thing that might happen to this movie, so I like you idea of a bloodless chase at the conclusion. Who do you see as the leading male and female characters?
Quote from Dr G <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR> Peter, you go take your family to a movie about Las Vegas hookers, and I take my family to the Disney movie "1001 Dachshunds". <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Guess which one would likely be more true to life? And I wouldn't take my family, I'd take a hot date. Change the main human characters in Brainstrained's plot to a hooker and a gigolo and you've got a story!!
I'm tempted to suggest J. Lo and Ben Affleck as the couple (this should attract the purient, ie. Peter, as well as family interest,though I'm note sure either is capable of owning any pet, let alone a Doxie).
And we'll sex change Cruella into a male character, Kruel, and sign Arnie Swarzenegger. I mean the man can do comedy and I think his long hidden accent would add colour.
But I think we could add humour and more family-friendly points if we replaced the couple angle with two aspiring vaudeville comedians. As separate acts, they're only aspring, but as a Doxie-owning duo, they're inspiring.
But alas, where would we find two aspiring vaudeville comedians?
Brainstrained, I am willing to take second billing, so long as Daisy and Rootie are the lead doxies.
Sander, will all the doom and gloom, albeit reality, that is discussed on this forum, a little light humor will do more for the elevation of the spirit than intellectual discourse that is usually found on this thread. Your point is well taken, but try and understand the frame-of-reference from which I come.
Actually, Dr. G., Sander is right. We're having too much fun in the more serious Mac forum. Now how do we move this thread over to the Canadian Kitchen?? By the way, I'll accept second billing as long as the doxies don't show "attitude"
