Abby and I were talking about movies this afternoon. Specifically Charlie St. Cloud. I knew nothing about it, despite all of the posters on the train platforms. There is a picture of a guy lying on the grass named, presumably, Charlie St. Cloud. And then there is this tagline: “Life is for living.”
“Abby I don’t know what this means. ‘Life is for living.’ What is this movie even about?”
We watched the trailer and discovered that Mr. St. Cloud does have a life, and he is living it, but not necessarily in a conventional way. We were not interested in him or his troubles, really, so we turned our attention to mockery.
“I saw on a poster at Jay Street somebody had written ‘Clothes are for clothing,'”Abby said.
Brilliant, I thought. Brilliant.
Which brings me to the game. Please submit your Charlie St. Cloud tagline parodies in the comment section. If you feel so inclined, you may include a brief synopsis of the the film that would be described by such a tagline.
I’ll start. “Drinks are for drinking.” A teenage boy gets a job at a juice bar where he meets the girl of his dreams, only to find out that she is his cousin. Or is she?
