Summer Movies - A Quiz

I read the NY Times guide to summer movies over the weekend. Hard to imagine how some of these projects got green lighted. Just for fun, I'm going to give you five brief summaries of upcoming movies. See if you can figure out which ones are real. Post your guesses in the comments section. The answer will be revealed in a future post.

1. Meryl Streep stars as famous chef Julia Child. Amy Adams co-stars as the woman who made over 500 of Child's recipes and lived to tell about it.

2. Robin Williams stars as a man who forges a suicide note after his son dies in an auto-erotic mishap. The note causes a literary sensation. Bobcat Goldwaith writes and directs.

3. Seth Rogen, Dakota Fanning and Willem Defoe co-star in the film adaptation of the TV show Alf. Alf attempts to return to his home planet of Melmac. Bill Murray and Bea Arthur (in her final film) make cameo appearances.

4. The English language version of Hiyao Miyazaki's (Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke) latest animated film, about a goldfish who wants to become human, features the voices of Tina Fey, Matt Damon, Betty White, and a Jonas Brother.

5. GI Joe becomes a live action movie with a Quaid and a Wayans in leading roles. Third Rock From the Sun's Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Cobra Commander.

Only 3 is fake; though it would probably be the best of the 5
