Dame Judi... or is it?

When professional actress Dame Judi Dench (herself) receives a series of death threats from a maniac stalker, she hires Maurice Jones (Tyler Perry) to act as her personal body double.

All goes according to plan, as the Dame lays low for several months whilst Maurice takes on her duties of accepting awards and making personal appearances.

After a few quiet months, the Dame, feeling a sense of security, relieves Maurice of his duties. But Maurice, having grown accustomed to the celebrity lifestyle, has begun to believe that he is the real Judi Dench. After a furious row with Dench, he makes plans to ‘permanently replace’ her.

The real Dench outsmarts her imposter by enlisting the help of her maniac stalker (Steve Buscemi), inviting him to meet for tea and cunningly luring Maurice to the same location. When the stalker sees whom he thinks is Judi Dench, he murders her/him. The imposter is eliminated, the stalker is arrested and the Dench safely continues her duties of accepting awards and making personal appearances.

Genre: Another one for the kids

Pizzeria owner, Jimmy Gepetto (Robert Loggia), always dreamt of having a son to call his own. One evening he makes a boy-shaped pizza, places it in the oven and whispers a wish before drifting off to sleep.

When Jimmy awakes, he is surprised to find a small pizza-boy (Tom Cruise) running around his restaurant. Recognizing the potential marketing appeal of a pizza-boy, Jimmy begins to exploit the boy’s image. Success soon follows and chains of ‘Pizza-Boy®’ pizzerias appear everywhere.

Pizza-boy grows disillusioned with his father, who now has very little time for him. One night, Pizza-boy sneaks out of the restaurant and runs into Jiminy Cockroach (voiced by Steve Buscemi), a sleazy pimp whose ‘girls’ are actually rodents. Pizza-boy is lured into the red light district and ultimately, to his death – devoured by prostitute vermin.

Possible dialogue:

Jiminy: “Hey Pizza Boy! You look like a guy who could use some rat pu**y. Am I right or am I right?”
