A doorman for a fancy New York apartment building nurses an unrequited crush on one of the tenants. He suffers through watching her come home with either a different dude every night (I would love to have a slutty object-of-his-affection) or one terrible boyfriend. The Doorman played by Adam Sandler from The Wedding Singer (need a time machine for this one).
You can find out a lot about someone from their trash…but can you fall in love with them? In this case, yes.
Grounds For Divorce
A man (David Duchovny) going through a difficult divorce with an uptight workaholic (Parker Posey) finds solace at a coffee shop, where he meets a manic pixie dream girl who teaches him a little about coffee and a lot about love. This one is aimed at an older audience, obviously, and will be directed by Nancy Myers.
The Pinch Hitter
This one’s about baseball. That’s a baseball term, right? It’s a nice title; I’ll get someone else to work out the logistics.
Channing Tatum owns a cupcake shop. Anna Faris is addicted to cupcakes. This one basically wrote itself. Ladies love cupcakes, they love Channing Tatum, give me a million dollars please.
Whose Baby Is This?
First half of the movie is devoted to finding out who the father is, second half is devoted to trying to build a life with the actual father while really being in love with the guy who ISN’T the father. I know, it’s a Criss Angel style Mindfreak.
The Elevator Affair
What happens when two strangers who hate each other on sight (Katherine Heigl as an uptight workaholic, and, oh, how about Channing Tatum again) are stuck in an elevator for 82 minutes? Cinema magic, that’s what! Also sex.
Pizza shop owner Anna Faris goes crazy when old-flame Channing Tatum (him again? I KNOW! I just think he would be really good in romantic comedies, you guys. He is just generic enough) comes back into town and starts working for her. He is a rebel and he makes so many careless mistakes with pizza crusts, but at the end it’s his endearing imperfection that makes the two of them work.
What happens when professional cleaning columnist Anna Faris meets professional mudwrestler (note to self: see if that’s a thing) Channing Tatum? SPARKS FLY! Mud splatters. Mopping ensues.
Up In Flames
After Steve Martin’s house burns down, he’s forced to move in with next door neighbor Penny Marshall. Sparks fly, pun intended. Is it weird I just really want to see a romantic comedy starring Penny Marshall? God, how has she been? I worry about her.
What happens when the priest who’s supposed to marry Rita (Anna Faris) and her husband (Channing Tatum) falls in love with her? The title works both ways.
