Movie Plots as Limericks

I saw a site that rewrote famous poems as limericks.

I thought it’d be fun to do the same with films.

Here’s two to start with:


A woman steals money at lunch hour
Gets surprisingly killed in the shower.
Balsam investigates
And meets Mother Bates.
Poor Norman ends up in Nut Tower.

Saving Private Ryan

Starts and ends with guns and bombs flyin’
In between is the search for bro Ryan.
Tom Hanks wonders why
He needs to die for this guy.
Old Ryan remembers, starts cryin’.

It’s A Wonderful Life

There once was a man named George Bailey
Who tried to leave town almost daily.
“End my life!” he insisted.
Saw his life not-existed.
His friends rallied round, all sang gaily.

Wanna play along?  Add your own movie limericks in the comments. 

Challenge:  Be the first to turn the entire LotR trilogy into a single limerick.

    Mahoney was your average Dunse
    Who traded jail for a badge and guns
    Jones was good at making sounds
    While Tackleberry fired off rounds
    And though it seemed they’d never make it
    In the end they all Graduated

    deep throat
    linda lovelace can’t cum
    fears her body is numb
    ’til she finds in her throat
    little man in a boat
    now every tom, dick & harry’s her chum


  3. dave s says:

    lotr i, ii, & iii
    there once was a ring that was stolen
    by a creature whose ego got swollen
    little guys on the hunt
    defeated the runt
    then returned to the shire, happily strollin’.

    kane was a citizen dud
    though he started his career as a stud
    lost his sleigh, found xanadu
    soul got small, but waistline grew
    ps his last word was “rosebud”


  6. Jay says:

    Marty was your average guy
    Till he drove 88 to ’55.
    George punched out Biff
    His dad and mom kissed
    And the Dolorean flew into the sky
