I stumbled across a blog which devoted itself to lampooning other's projects and initiative. The nice part is that we nerds get to respond here in cyberspace.
Crappy Loglines I love
This site is for fans of the original Query Letters I Love, and qlil2. This site features a collection of loglines that should never be made into movies in Hollywood. If your logline is up here- have a sense of humour- you need it in this business! This site is dedicated to Managerguy, the Empress, the Sharkies and Pandas.

Henry's Current Record: 0 Wins; 386,254 losses.
MY RESPONSE: This was not a Hollywood film, so we're okay there. A Sense of Humor? I do have a sense of humor, and found none here, only ridicule and 'fun' at other's expense. I'm old fashioned, and as my dear mother would have said, "if you don't have something nice to say, shut the fuck up!" But that was mum.
An old farmhouse has been in the same family for generations, holding all the secrets in its walls, becoming a portal between the times. What happens when time collides? Sadie thinks she's going insane. Edmund's sure he's being haunted. And Henry, well, Henry's racing daylight.

When time collides with what? Finish the thought! However, I like the title. That's all though. I would hazard to guess that the querier liked it too and worked desperately to come up with a plot to go with the title and unfortunately, like dear Henry, came up short.
MY RESPONSE: When time collides with itself, dear. Actually the logline was written well after the script.

The querier's answered all the questions, so there's no need to see this film.
MY RESPONSE: A film is the visual representation of those answers. And maybe your imagination is the same as mine and you have seen all of the same images in your head. But if not, I suggest you give it a try, on me.
mzdplvfe - There's no way I'd see this stinker anyway.
MY RESPONSE: Ouch! Maybe it's not your taste. But no one died, and at last look there was no olfactory involvement.

Its tough to race daylight in a house
MY RESPONSE: We do it everyday.

I think "racing daylight" is just another way of saying "Edmund, you only think it's John Malkovich you're screwing" in polite company.
MY RESPONSE: Okay ... bit of a reach, but okay ...
komjk: A really expensive comb for bald people.
MY RESPONSE: Ah ... yeah, okay, right, sure, just put your arms through the white sleeves and we'll wrap it around for you.

This crappy loglined film will be out on dvd in the fall.
MY RESPONSE: Check it out if you dare!
