It’s the Correctness Movie Pitch Mash up Game!
First, a bit of background. This past Halloween, in between sets of raging horror movie themed Pictionary, our very own RobbieRobtown introduced a little parlour game into our midst that was, apparently a favourite of the ever so hip improv crowd. The game was simple…you pitch two movies together, (You always start with “It’s the Story of…”) then deliver the title/punchline. Then the party lapsed into a deadly silence as everyone immediately started trying to think of one.
So, way to kill a party again, there Rob.
