Funny, and surprisingly difficult, meme  
Pick 20 movies/anime/video games/literary works and put their summaries from Better Than it Sounds and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess., taken from lacebird

Comments are screened (for some time) so that everyone can have a try :)
And beware of the trap ! (ie I know what you're expecting to find in there!)
Edit I'll be keeping track of what has already been found, but don't hesitate to submit them again!

1. Teenage underachiever whose life philosophy is derived from a misremembered song lyric gets into misadventures in New York.
2. A monster uses a watch to suck away a girl's soul. He may love her. Together, They Fight Demons.
3. Four guys are sent west in a very small jeep by a hermaphroditic deity. Hilarity Ensues.
4. Everyone is gay. Sex is abundant. [Found]
5. King Arthur on a low budget. With many original additions. [Found]
6. Five teenagers have a spat with their parents and run away from home.
7. A boy and his butler solve murders and sometimes commit them. Sometimes there are zombies and often there is incest.
8. Military specialist searches for a magic rock recipe to get his brother out of a can. In one version of the story, the rock is their father, in the other version the rock is us. [Found]
9. Laser tag is Serious Business, Real Time Strategy games even more so.
10. A teenage boy goes to a fair. Apocalypse ensues. (God I love that summary XD)
11. A bumbling manservant uses non-specified superpowers to protect his unwitting and unappreciative master while taking advice from a dragon that basically speaks in subtext (and ships them). Corny CGI ensues. [Found]
12. A Mc Guffin carrying boy who sees strange beings goes on a quest of namecalling with his animal sidekick.
13. Bisexual, sociopathic veterinarian/assassin with a floral theme makes a bet with a fashion-challenged uke, wins, and kills the uke's sister. It takes place to an 80's soundtrack.
14. The adventures of a collection of psychopaths in a dark city composed entirely of grimy back alleys and populated entirely by prostitutes, other psychopaths and Film Noir cliches.
15 A bureaucrat tries to get some loose paperwork errors corrected, and maybe get his air conditioning repaired in the process. (Alternately, 1984 as directed by Monty Python.)
16. The player takes on the role of a child in a world where kids are allowed to leave the house at 10 years of age and traverse the world, capture and force animals to fight each other causing them to mutate into grotesque monsters, and beat up the local crime syndicate. There are only four games in this series but they have been released 17 times under different names. [Found]
17. A cute little girl navigates a world of very confusing and complex love relationships, while collecting cards in her spare time. [Found]
18. People fight over a piece of jewelry. A bunch of pot-smoking midgets provide a convincing argument that size doesn't matter. [Found]
19. Even vaster armies fight it out for centuries over three pieces of jewelry.
20. Four drug addicts lead miserable, self-destructive and ultimately unfulfilled lives. Oh, and it has epic music. [Found]

Gagné pour le 5 ! Faudrait juste, théoriquement, me préciser le titre exact pour valider, mais c'est pas comme si tu le savais pas, donc XD Je doute fortement que tu connaisses le 12, pas de soucis :) Gagné pour le 20 également !

Eh eh eh. Effectivement la connaissance des avis des gens sur le 11 est plus utile que la connaissance de l'oeuvre en elle-même, je crois XD; Gagné ! (et bravo pour la déduction à partir de commentaires !)

N'est-ce pas ? C'est tellement... synthétique XD;
Je pense que ce qui peut permettre de trouver, c'est la référence à la fair. Elle m'avait tué, parce qu'elle parodiait tellement le système des rpgs, que je m'étais trouvée tellement démunie à me faire réprimander pour avoir "volé" un objet (comment ? tous les objets ne sont pas en libre disposition ?), etc, etc...
Bon, je donne sûrement la solution pour ceux qui connaissent le jeu et lisent mon commentaire, mais ce jeu est tellement fantastique !

Ca m'a fait un peu mal au coeur ce résumé, mais au final... So true comme tu dis XD;
