More YouTube Movies We’d Like To See

by Andrew Osborne 

This week sees the release of the crowd-sourced documentary Life In A Day, featuring thousands of YouTube clips uploaded by users around the world on July 24, 2010.  It’s a fascinating experiment, and if it succeeds at the box office, we’re guessing it won’t be long before Hollywood starts cranking out adaptations of some of the website’s all-time viral classics.
Tyler Perry’s Madea and the Bed Intruder
When some idiot from the projects attempts to rape a young Huntsville woman (Raven Symone), her brother (Wyatt Cenac) sets out to find the culprit with the help of an aging, righteous transvestite.  So you can run and tell THAT, homeboy.
Double Rainbow:  All The Way
Seth Rogen stars in this Judd Apatow production (directed by Paul Feig) about a solitary hiker trapped for 127 hours in a state of rapturous confusion about the meaning of a common meteorological phenomenon resulting from the intersection of sunlight and droplets of moisture.
David After Dentist
In the latest dark-n-edgy™ vision from indie auteur Darren Aronofsky, a young boy (Justin Bieber) descends into a nightmare of nitrous oxide addiction, unable to determine whether he’s still in the “real world” as his sadistic father (and a gaggle of cheesy animated hallucinations) cackle in glee.
Leave Britney Alone!
After bringing home numerous boyfriends in hopes of convincing his fundamentalist parents that his sexual orientation isn’t merely “a phase,” an effeminate teen (Chris Colfer) finally proves that he is indeed 100% irreversibly gay with his sobbing video defense of an addled, quasi-talented pop star.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
Don’t Tase Me, Bro
Robert Redford tackles social injustice once more in this tale of an obnoxious young man (Shia LaBeouf) determined not to understand why his disruptive behavior is frowned upon by the local constabulary. 
Today Is Friday, Tomorrow Is Saturday, And Sunday Comes After
In this Americanized remake of the J-horror classic Ringu, a warbling black-haired wraith spreads despair and soul-deadening mediocrity by screeching the days of the week in a mysterious internet video which appears briefly to a group of ill-fated viewers before returning once more to oblivion.
Keyboard Cat
Justin Timberlake voices the title character in the latest CGI marketing campaign from DreamWorks Animation (featuring the directorial debut of Jeffrey Katzenberg’s brother, The Dramatic Squirrel).
The Evolution of Dance
With a running time of nearly four and a half hours, Terrence Malick’s latest masterpiece traces the entire history of movement in the universe from the early flickers of light preceding the Big Bang to the final moments of an inspirational speaker (Sean Penn) as he ruminates on the nature of grace while dancing the mashed potato on a cold, desolate beach.
