Indiana Holmes;  (A musical)

A 20th century Adventurer and a Victorian detective are accidentally merged in a bizarre time travel experiment, and journey together using a violin, a mild dose of cocaine, and a handheld GPS to find the legendary Temple of Doom.  During the journey the combined character occasionally lets out a tourettes-like shout of "What's on?" and the train of native bearers - all awaiting their cue to run away and abandon their employer sing back at him "Not a lot."

After enough adventures to fill the back of a postcard - according to all the best screenwriting guidelines - the hero is abandoned by his helpers and staggers over a monstrous sand dune playing his violin in a drug induced melancholy.  He beholds the Temple of Doom - guarded by two Golden Arches - and immediately succumbs to a fatal cholestorol overdose brought on by a 'Sixteen Pounder Septtuple Cheeseburger Deluxe.

In the final seconds his bush hat bowls across the sand in the grip of the Sirocco, and an abandoned violin slowly fills with dust as the dying notes of a nocturne in dead flat fade into silence.  The dropped whip lays there in a curiously familar shape, posing the eternal question, "Why?".

My Big Fat Greek Sundance Kid

(I'd actually thought of a different second part to this but bottled out at the last minute. If you really want to know, think about a 1993 film aimed at kids about a whale who is liberated.)

Xerika, you can't bottle out. My big fat Greek Willy isn't that embarrassing. Use Free for nudism.

On Deadly Groundhog Day

Corporate big business and the environment face off over, and over, and over, and over again as Steven Segal makes his directorial debut with Michael Caine as the convincing oil mogul. Bill Murray plays an arrogant, weather forecaster who starts out in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and ends up in Alaska where he is to do a broadcast the next day about the annual ritual of the coming out of the groundhog. Yes, groundhogs come out too. So what is coming up out of those holes in the ground, oil or Punxsutawney Pete for Pete's sake?!
