The Plot-o-matic

Okay, this website is tons of fun.


I was looking for some good plot prompt generators, and found this little beauty. Totally not usable for a story, but oh so much fun to play with.

Here is my screenplay. I expect Hollywood to call any minute now:

Things Go BOOM!
An original screenplay concept
by Elizabeth Poole
Period Piece: A precocious child teams up with a well-built female cyborg to win a wager. In the process they sign a suicide pact with a super intelligent chimpanzee. By the end of the movie they shoot 42 oogly mothers-in-law and end up winning the admiration of their spouses, living happily ever after.
Think Priscilla, Queen of the Desert meets Equilibrium.

How to make a million: Print this page now. Make a copy, send it to your favorite movie studio, and before you know it an armored car will pull up to your door and unload bag after bag of beautiful green entertainment bucks. And they’ll be yours to do whatever you wish!

Isn’t that just pure genius?



  1. LMAO! That is too funny. I'm going to have to go play over there.

  2. Think Priscilla, Queen of the Desert meets Equilibrium.

    Wow, that image is burned into my brain now. Hugo Weaving in drag doing gunkata. So, so wrong.

  3. Ha! I love it! (Not that I need another site to distract me) I want to go play with it too!

  4. @ Mary: Careful you don’t get lost! It’s addictive!

    @Joseph: I tried to think of the most inappropriate combination I could think of out of my favorite movies. When I saw the option of “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”, I knew what I had to do.

    @Liz: I will also caution you to take care, least you get lost! It really is a lot of fun.

  5. I might be playing with this all day...

  6. That's great! Here's another one: - it gives 'logline-like' plot ideas... ; )
