Rejected Pitches: Look Who’s Talking

  • Share

Before John Travolta had a comeback in 1994 with Pulp Fiction, he had a comeback in 1989 with Look Who’s Talking.

The latest episode of Rejected Pitches doesn’t even mention John Travolta, which is really a shame because who doesn’t like talking about John Travolta?

Did you know that John Travolta is a certified private pilot and owns five aircraft, including an ex-Qantas Boeing 707–138 airliner?

Share your favorite John Travolta facts in the comments.  Here’s a link to his Wikipedia page to get the ball rolling.

Oh, and watch Rejected Pitches because, come on, a film with a talking baby??  Don’t you realize 10 years from now a movie called Baby Geniuses is going to come out??  That’ll be embarrassing for you, Amy Heckerling.

Rejected Pitches: Citizen Kane

  • Share

Big news earlier this month: For the first time in 50 years, Citizen Kane didn’t top the “Sight & Sound” poll to determine the greatest movie ever made.

I’ve never seen Citizen Kane (despite graduating from film school — good work, USC), but if we’re to believe the Rejected Pitches team, it sounds like Citizen Kane is possibly the worst movie ever made.

And why should we not believe the Rejected Pitches team?  They make Internet videos.

I think the moral here is that Orson Welles has been dead for decades and can’t defend himself.

Rosebud….

Rejected Pitches: Pulp Fiction

If only Quentin Tarantino would have listened to the Rejected Pitches team, the meandering Pulp Fiction would never have been made and instead Honey Bunny’s Funny Sunday would have taken home the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Now that sounds like a movie I’d go see!

Have any ideas for Honey Bunny’s Funny Sunday? Leave them in the comments below!

Rejected Pitches : Home Alone

  • Share

John Hughes is routinely praised for his films accurately depicting middle-class adolescence in America’s suburbs. He had a unique gift writing dialog that captured the speech of our nation’s high-schoolers.

Too bad he doesn’t know squat about violence! Kevin would have dead been so fast! Bang! Shot in the head! Bad guys win! Cute kid loses! That’s it! Credits please!

But don’t listen to me. Watch the Rejected Pitches team give John the business.

Rejected Pitches: The Sixth Sense

  • Share

If “The Sixth Sense” hadn’t come out, the world would be a very different place.

For one thing, people would have never run around whispering “I see dead people” all the time.

We would have never known that Mischa Barton in her prime was actually way before The O.C.

And finally, we all would have known Haley Joel Osment as that kid in that random movie about lions.

Check out why it should have been rejected on the latest episode of Rejected Pitches! Catch up on the rest of the series here.
