My idea for a great Hollywood hit!!! (Please Read!)

Okay, judging from the past few weeks people love crap movies, especially those with talking animals.

My idea: a man must trek across country to find his missing girlfriend with the help of his talking dog. Twist: the dog has bad gas problems and a tendency to try and hump the leg of everyone he encounters!


If not that: a love story about a guy who accidentally craps his pants everytime he falls in love!

Okay, first thing we need is a great soundtrack of B-sides from flash in the pan artists, and I want a cut of all the profits in lieu of a screenwriters salary.

I think Jerry O'Connell will be available for the lead! He's got experience with talking animals. If not, I'm sure we can get Rob Schneider, who was The Animal.

There should definitely be an RV - they are good for use in dramas, comedies and action sequences.

Today's Daily Variety reads that Brett Rattner has expressed some interest in the project, tentatively titled 'Who Let the Dog Out?'

Can we find space for the Giant Poop Monster?

Sounds like a Farrelly Brothers film.

Wait, does this movie have the obligatory humorous black sidekick? And somewhere in the movie something has to blow up. Otherwise how can you call that a movie!

The black comedy side kick is a must you realize. Now the real question, we need the fart jokes.

And at some point either the protagonist or a bad guy must be beaten senseless and given multiple concussions so that he can get up, make a smart-alec comment, then proceed to run for a couple of miles, hang off the side of a cliff, bridge, or moving vehicle, and fight several rounds!

Instead of the black comedy sidekick, let's just kill two birds with one stone by making Eddie Murphy the voice of the talking dog.

Also, let's throw in a twist at the end by having the guy say he's looking for "his love" which of course means it turns out he's looking for
Spoiler:
his boyfriend (not that there's anything wrong with that).
