What About Dad? (PG-13)

Unhappy and jaded teenager Stacy Fairchild (Ellen Page) decides to seek out her long-lost paternal father (Michael Keaton) despite her mother (Sigourney Weaver) and stepfather’s (Tom Skerritt) wishes.

Shockingly, Stacy discovers that her father has been in a mental institution for twenty years – something she was never told. Against her mother’s wishes, she decides to visit and meet him for the first time (includes very emotional reunion scene).

Much to Stacy’s surprise, the crazy father tells her that he was duped into the mental hospital by his conniving ex-wife (her mom) and her boyfriend (now her stepfather) – stealing his fortune in the process. He convinces her that he’s sane and she decides to help him sneak out to seek redemption and revenge.

Hilarity ensues when the dad turns out to be crazy as a loon.

Possible dialogue:

Crazy dad: Don’t you see? They stole my freedom, they stole my daughter… they stole… my… life!

Daughter: (in tears) OK, dad. I’m going to get you out of here.

Crazy dad: Just let me get my cape and my Barbies.

First Doggy (G)

U.S President (Tim Allen) is on a top secret stopover trip to North Korea to hopefully sign a peace treaty with Kim Jong-il (Bob Hoskins).

While there, his beloved talking dog ‘Boner’ (voiced by Tom Skerritt) gets lost on the streets of Pyongyang.

The Chief of Staff (Martin Short) is instantly appointed as dogcatcher-in-chief, and given 24 hours to find the missing dog while the anxious President continues with the summit.

Luckily, Boner meets ‘Elderflower’ (voiced by Sophia Loren) a tough streetwalking Siamese cat, who takes the innocent American under her wing.
Together they attempt to avoid danger (including hungry locals) and make it back to Air Force One, before it has to take off with or without them.

Maybe along the way they can succeed where the humans have failed and somehow bring their two great nations closer together?
(*a lot closer if Boner has his way!)

Plot:
Terrorists are planning a spectacular for the World’s Football Cup of Soccer in South Africa in 2010! They plan to smuggle a nuclear bomb, hidden inside Michael Essien* (Chiwetel Ejifor) to the opening game (England v Ghana) and it’s set to go off when he scores a goal (or gets 2 assists).

(* Michael doesn’t know anything about this)

The Queen (Dame Judi Dench) orders England manager (Jamie Redknapp) to include undercover SAS man, Nobby Windass (Sean Bean) in his squad. Nobby’s mission: Stop! – Michael! – Essien!

Can Nobby complete his mission? – find the mole in the England camp? (is it physio Keira Knightley?) and win the respect of his coach & team-mates?

Oh! & unmask the man behind the whole plan: FIFA President, Randy Balzano (Tom Skerritt)

Possible dialogue:

Coach Redknapp: “He’s a Top Top player Nobby, but this is a hurt business, now get out there an ‘urt ‘im” .

Note

American version to be made. Replace World Cup with the Indy 500, add lots more explosions and babes, etc…
