Movies In Fifteen Minutes

The ten biggest grossing movies of all time would take nearly two days to watch end to end. And thats with no toilet breaks. And all you'd get to eat and drink would be enormo buckets of coke and popcorn and six inches of hideous pink extruded gunk in a bun. Think of all those special effects, think of all those Hollywood family values, think of the unlikely plot twists, of the suspect character motivation, the sentimentality, the ...shudder ...dialogue. Now here's a way to experience all those films in two and a half hours. With added jokes. Titanic! Lord of the Rings! Harry Potter! Gladiator! And some others! Lauren Terry has taken the biggest films ever and put them through a shredder. The result is ten hilarious scripts, ten uncannily accurate summations, ten easily digestible, slyly satiric attacks on everything that is wrong with the Hollywood blockbuster. All informed by an encyclopaedic knowledge of, and genuine love for, the movies.

"Her revved-up plotlines caper through over-extended blockbusters, scaling them down 'for people who can't be bothered'. The results are hilarious." THE OBSERVER "Irreverent, accurate and very funny, Movies in Fifteen Minutes is a must for anyone with a sense of humour who loves films." IMAGE "If your man sees going to the cinema as a waste of drinking time, this book's bite sized portions of the 10 biggest films is ideal." B Magazine "Had us giggling. The piss takes spliced into the revised scripts of blockbusters such as The Lord of the Rings and Gladiator make it well worth a read." DVD Review "Like most great premises this is a deceptively simple one: entire movies summarised in flippant and sometimes hilarious ways. For the blog generation there is much to enjoy." -- Catherine Bray HOTDOG "Convinced that most movies could tell their entire story in a fraction of their running time, Jones has kindly produced amusingly condensed scripts for some of the biggest films of the last decade, from Jurassic Park to the Lord of the Rings." -- Anna Carey THE IRISH TIMES
