I would totally watch that, R3.
r3, I hope you copyrighted that plot. It's actually pretty good and can be a 60 million grosser with a 15 million budget
If Jennifer doesn't take any of these offers, I'm available!
All of these roles would be too old for me to play! Got any suggestions for films with leading roles for a fresh-faced and beautiful ingenue?
And after Eesie fails her screen test miserably, call me. I'm no longer tied up with a family illness.
r3, that movie idea is really good and has the potential to be entertaining. Kudos.

Thanks for this thread. I wrote a scenario to post, then decided it actually could work, so I saved it and will start fleshing it out this week.

Soon, she's due for a big surprise...
Good luck, r11.
Wanderlust was HILARIOUS! Though that has nothing to do with Jennifer Aniston and all to do with David Wain.
R13: For Labor Day to work as one of the holiday-themed rom-coms you'll have to build several other relationship subplots around the Aniston character.
"Pour Me Another" - Jennifer Aniston IS Siobhan Flannery, the spoiled youngest daughter of Chicago beer mogul Dan Flannery (Kevin Dobson in his triumphant return to the spotlight). When Dan and mortal enemy Karl Kzysyzzzysytzkysy (Ed Harris) fight a battle to buy an ailing brewery, Siobhan finds herself drawn to Karl's son Cosmo (Seth Rogan).

Did you ever wonder if Jennifer Aniston actually cheated on Brad Pitt, long before he cheated on her?
ON GOLDEN-GIRL POND
Jennifer Aniston makes the brave decision to star with her real-life parents, John Aniston and Nancy Dow, in a cathartic, revealing, and-- did I mention brave?-- documentary about how Jen took care of Nancy after her stroke. Even though Nancy didn't deserve it. And John is the nice one. And Jen is so brave.
So very, very brave!

A CHRISTMAS PROMISE
When big city financial planner Emily Reardon (Jennifer Anniston) learns that her beloved Grammy Wilson (Vanessa Regrave) is dying, Emily vows not to let her estrangement from her mother (Julianne Moore) stand in the way of a last goodbye.
Uncertain about returning to Goose Lake, Wisconsin for Christmas, Emily is heartened to learn that the residents look past her New York ways and designer fashions, and see only Chet and Doris Wilson’s little girl who always dreamed big.
As she lay dying, Grammy Wilson asks Emily to grant her one wish and to make a promise: to call her former beau Todd (James Marsden)before Christmas and rekindle a flame Grammy knows did not die
With Don Cheadle as the town black person; and Natalie Portman as the local jewess.
This Time It's Me. Tiffany Blake (Jennifer Aniston) is Chicago's hottest professional organizer, but her own life is a mess! Her main business rival is assumed to be gay Freddie Olivier(Paul Bettany), who's only faking to be gay to generate business. When talk show legend Shante La Lique (Mo'nique)let's it be known she's headhunting for someone to organize her life, it's war! A battle of the sexes with love the winner!
[R27], I think we should have none other than Miss Dionne Warwick play Beyonce's mother in that film.
[quote]Emily vows not to let her estrangement from her mother (Julianne Moore) stand in the way of a last goodbye.
Poor Julianne! She's only 9 years older than Aniston!
Oh, R29. Everyone knows there are no black people in Wisconsin!
[R29], Julianne Moore as Jennifer Aniston's mother? How old was she supposed to have been when she gave birth? 10?
Reese Witherspoon was offered the part of Aniston's mother but it was determined that she didn't read as young enough on screen to be believable.
Julianne is an ACTOR! She could play the Don Cheadle role and win a best supporting actress Emmy in the process.
I don't think R27's premise would fly.
Her hair must always be prominently on display... unless she claims it's a weave.
At what point does Jenny become desperate and play a mute hooker in an Oscar bait film with lots of nudity?
God, this thread...lol... I just can't..

At first Susan tries to forget him and go on with her life, but when she realizes that beautiful Marianne is a psycho druggie who's making Chip miserable, she realizes she needs to get Chip back!
Co-starring Robert Pattinson, Ryan Reynolds, George Clooney, and James Franco as the gay pals who act as escorts, while helping her scheme to get Chip back.
(Actually, this would work better with Anne Hathaway.)
R43, I think this is pretty much what a brainstorming session at a big studio is like these days.
The only question is usually: Aniston, Witherspoon or SJP?

[R51], you forgot to include Kathleen Turner as Abby's mom, Peggy Sue, in your cast list. ;-)
I'd pay cash money to see that one, r51.
Then again, maybe not because I'm sure it's in the works and I am on a budget.
Jennifer Aniston and Dakota Fanning BFFs? I love it!

But in the process, she ends up learning a lesson in life balance and finding her true love in the foul-mouthed, sloppy yet carefree office copyboy (Seth Rogen).
James Franco, Alex Pettyfer and Adam Rodriguez all cameo as potential Eldergay cherry poppers.

W&W for r 27
Vivacious, no-bullshit Gracie Monaghan (Jennifer Aniston) is the very successful (but not in a threatening or emasculating way) owner and CEO of "Sidechicks", a "romantic management consultant service" that for a hefty fee matches wealthy, socially inept bachelor with a gorgeous wingwoman who serves as his dating game coach and birddogging partner until he is able to ladykill on his own.
Gracie has but two rules for herself and her team of wingwomen (Olivia Munn, three blonde twenty-three year old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit alumni, and some light-skinned black hottie - ideally British): no flats and no getting involved with clients.
From the outside, Gracie has it all: a sun-drenched apartment full of Louboutins and home decor items from Anthropologie ; the ability to pull off a variety of hairstyles. But the unintended result of devoting all of her energies to training men how to effective woo other women is that Gracie, herself, has arrived in her mid-thirties (in the right lighting) chronically single and resigned to a life of loneliness.
Gracie world is turned upside down when she takes on brainy Maxwell MacTeer (David Duchovny), a quirky celebrated journalist/non-fiction writer whose recent book "Prime Mover" has been rejected by his editors for making the claim that it will explain the reasons why everything is the way it is, but has somehow managed to ignore sex altogether.
The two initially clash, Maxwell insists that sex and love don't really matter in the grand scheme of things and he is only getting coached by Gracie in order to get enough "sex" material for his book to satisfy his editors. This frustrates Gracie,who insists that Maxwell is just scared of rejection and that sex and love are the prime movers behind all human interaction (after all, they've been her bread and butter since she left college back in the very late nineties!)
Under Gracie's tutelage, Maxwell blossoms from a quirky ascetic to a suave renaissance man, and Gracie realizes that she's falling in love with him. She watches with dismay as he meets and successfully woos Lydia (Jessica Alba) a brain surgeon with Doctors without Borders.Gracie realizes that if she's ever going to be happy, she is going to have to break her rule (not the one about high heels) and be her own wingwoman.
Gracie has a heartwarming relationship with Irving (Alan Alda) a lonely, avuncular widower who Gracie takes on as a client. He has an implied threesome with two old ladies in the closing credits!
Gracie has teething troubles with Lila (Aubrey Plaza) a sardonic grad student and feminist that she has recently hired.
Construction company owner Danny (Vince Vaughn) is a perennial client of Gracie's. A lovable scamp and habitual date rapist, he is always up to some sort of hijinks in order to get pussy
Mercenary Ivy (Olivia Munn) breaks Gracie's no getting involved rule when she jumps at the chance to get with "internet mogul" Travis Zimberg (Justin Long). She is horrified to learn that he is actually a lowly programmer and not rich at all. She is even more horrified to learn that she has genuine feelings for him!
Get It Together!
Feisty assistant District Attorney Maxine Schwar (Aniston) is living the high life in Philadelphia with her handsome husband Armistead Rimmer (Mark Wahlberg) and cute twins Izzy & Dash. When a new colleague at work, Destina Hoare (Katherine Heigl) manages to usurp her for a promotion and in her husbands affections "Maxy" suffers a nervous breakdown.
It'll take the help of her zany mother Sondra (Betty White) and best gal pals (Deborah Gibson, Jenna Von Oy, Judy Greer, Matt Bomer, academy award winner-MONIQUE) to help her get back on top, get back her man and GET IT TOGETHER!
Two to Tango- Identical twins, Marlow and Meg couldn't be more different but DNA isn't the only thing they share, they're both in miserable relationships that they can't break out of. They decide drastic steps are in order. They switch identities so that they can drop the hammers. The only problem is our girls soon find love in their sister's significant others. Paul Rudd and Jason Segal costar.
They should do a insipid piece of trash that stars all the leading ladies who've headlined the type of dreck within the last five years.

Co-starring Viggo Mortensen as Commandant Schmidt, the steely-eyed camp commander with a secret heart of gold who takes a shining to the new camp beauty.

Candace Klinger (Jennifer Aniston) is a hot-shot attorney at an LA law firm to the stars who pours everything she has into her job, even if that means spending most nights alone.

After an impassioned plea by Candace, Chase seems set to go free on probation, but a belligerent Chase winds up talking himself into a 5 year prison sentence by the non-plussed, no-nonsense judge (Nancy Grace in a cameo).
Candace's big loss in court puts her in hot water with her boss, Randy Oldman (Dan Ackroyd), and, unless she agrees to sleep with him, she has one chance to save the career she loves, representing accused shoplifting starlet, Melanie Mayfair (Kate Hudson). The catch? She has to share the case with arrogant up-and-coming associate, Miles O'Grady (Jason Segel). Yet while Candace had not given her co-worker, Miles, much thought before, the two bond as friends working on the case and discover a shared love of classic Looney Tunes cartoons. Yet once she sees her sticky-fingered client working to steal something else, Miles's heart, Candace's competitive side kicks in and she is determined not to let this chance at love slip away, even if it costs her her career as a legal eagle.

Never Too Late To Learn
High powered business woman Emma Monroe(Aniston) is beautiful and about to make the biggest deal of her career. But what her colleagues don't know is that the beautiful career woman has never learned how to use a a computer. As her sassy executive assistant Orlando (Glee's Chris Colfer) dreams of poisoning her, Emma continues to make him send highly personal texts to her boyfriend David (Matt Keeslar), until he dumps her when she's unable to reply to a text and stands him up, not for the first time.
Realising enough is enough, Emma joins a community college course run by nun Sister Alice (Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino) to learn how to use her iPhone. Taken aback by how unskilled and poor her fellow students are, Emma has a change of heart and wonders whether she should stop her company takeover and plow the investment funds back into the community, helping poor Koochie (Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer) realise her dream of running a fried chicken restaurant and possible love interest Humphrey (Paul Rudd) open a hardware store.

Sounds awesome, r3, I'd actually go see that. R27, if someone steals your idea and makes that movie, or anything like it, I will have you knocked off. :)
Can we do one for Mariska? I think if studios had a little help visualizing her in movie rolls, it would help her post-SVU career along.
Baker's Dozen - Kit Baker (Jennifer Anniston) has it all: a high profile job as an editor along side fashion's toughest critic, Yvonne Shepherd (Holland Taylor), an assistant DA beau (Eddie Cibrian) and an adorable cocker spaniel/Llasa Apso mix, Schatzie (played by my dog Schatzie in her breakthrough performance, but I digress...).

Hijinks ensue right upon arrival when Kit has to plan an "in home funeral" for Prissy's husband Clay (Billy Bob Thornton) - an Apple Patch tradition - when one of the kids, Kimmy (Dance Mom's star "Chloe") accidentally drops her 4H charm into dad's now sealed casket.

Tagline: Love, like apples, is good for us.
Jennifer Aniston stars as Bethany "Apple" Sterling, a New Jersey middle-aged woman suffering from cerebral palsy. She lives with her lonely, recently widowed, yet eccentric and domineering grandmother, Beverly "Bev" Sterling, played by Shirley MacLain who raised Apple since she was a toddler due to her alcoholic mother skipping town and dumping her with her grandparents.
Apple and her grandmother make weekly trips to the doctor where she gets shots to induce Apple's seizures she periodically gets. In order to appease Apple's apprehensions about going to the doctor Bev uses the comforting slogan, "An Apple a day keeps the doctor away" which eases Apple yet does not ease her desperation for independence and being treated like a woman, because Apple's grandmother doesn't believe she can live on her own. However, the real reason is the grandmother is lonely and doesn't want to let her granddaughter go due to not being fully over the death of Apple's grandfather, Bev's husband.
Tired of being treated like a child and being poked and prodded by the doctor on a weekly basis, Apple decides to take a road trip unbenounced to her grandmother to the biggest apple of all; a place where she will certainly never have to go to the doctor again, and a place where she can absolutely claim her independence, New York City.
This is where Apple's adventure begins.
Awe struck by the glitz, glamour, lights, and Broadway, Apple clumsily makes her through NYC. She is introduced to many firsts some of which include: rude people, taxi cab rides, taxi cab drivers she doesn't understand, (neither understand each other), Brooklyn, getting robbed, homeless people, rats, her one room apartment, getting her first job as a stock person at Bloomingdales, and of course, her first love: William, a man who also suffers from Cerebral Palsy, played by Seann William Scott.
Bev, panicked for the safety of her granddaughter, and the seizures she may get, which she does, only to be assisted with the frightened help of William, teams up with her jokester, yet adoring neighbor, Sal Giovanni, played by Danny Devito. Both travel to New York City and go to get Apple home safe and sound, while discovering each other in the process.
During this adventure to New York City, Apple teaches all a little of something.
"Apple" is a heart-warming story about love, trust, discovery, growing up, and letting go.

What's sad is that her agent is probably combing through these ideas and one will end up on screen.
And if not Jen, then Jessica Alba's agent.

"Mission Aborted (2013)"
Mary O'Malley (Jennifer Aniston) is a beautiful and vicacious abortionist struggling to make ends meet after Obamacare's free birth control pills provision nearly puts her abortion clinic out of business.
On a wing and a prayer, the lapsed Catholic heads to church and bows her head in prayer at the altar. It's then that Mary overhears behind her someone talking to the priest, Ike Weaver (Kirk Cameron), discussing the bishops' plan to get Congress to end birth control coverage for ALL women's health insurance. Thrilled, Mary crosses herself and gets up to leave when she accidentally bumps into up-and-coming GOP presidential candidate Nick Sartorum (Rob Lowe) whose wife recently died in childbirth and who is finally ready to learn how to love again.
Mary will try to teach him how to love again as she volunteers for his campaign, but all the while trying to keep her abortionist day job under wraps from the suspicious bishop (Jon Voight), Nick's jealous press secretary (Callista Flockhart) and a hard-nosed journalist desperate to dig up her dirt (Ryan Reynolds).
It's your choice whether you try to terminate your laughter when you see Mary try to escape hijinks like the time Ike and Nick lead a protest outside her abortion clinic!!! Oh baby, this is one romantic comedy you'll want to bring to term.

Professor Kate Mulherne (Jennifer Aniston) teaches a university-level course on "American Romance in the Postmodern Era," a class that her students inevitably call "Romance 101." ("I hate that name!" Kate laments. "I have a PhD. I'm a Fulbright Scholar! Would someone like me teach a class called Romance 101?") Kate's theory -- that the sexes are equal and romance is dead -- is shaken up when one of her students (Gerard Butler), a policeman returning to college after being shot in the line of duty, questions Kate's beliefs. Especially after he embarrasses her in class by asking about her romantic life ("I have a live-in partner with whom I share a monotonous relationship," says Kate, before clapping her hand over mouth and saying, "Monogamous relationship! I meant monogamous!") Soon the former policeman is luring Kate away from her serious academic life (cut to montage of the couple sipping coffee in a street cafe, eating caramel apples while strolling through an amusement park, riding the tilt-a-whirl, and kissing.) When Kate and her live-in boyfriend spend spring break at her parents' lakefront home (in a casting coup, the older couple are played by Ed Asner and Mary Tyler Moore), the policeman rents a nearby cottage. Matthew Broderick shines as Kate's college professor boyfriend, who gets sexually turned on by mathematics formulas and whose attempts to go fishing with Dad lead to lots of standing up in the boat with his arms spiraling before falling in the water. Wehn tragedy strikes, it's Kate's now-widowed mother who offers words of advice, "It's great to be a strong woman, but sometimes it's okay to show your soft side," that help Kate choose the right mate and get a passing grade in "Romance 101." (The ad campaign features Aniston wearing a mortarboard and short skirt, sitting on an oversized book while miniature figures of Butler and Broderick try to scale the book's sides.)

"Off Key" (2014)
Ellie "Key" Keyston(Jennifer Aniston)dreamed of becoming a famous songwriter/music producer, but after an epic failure early in her career,(she was given the chance to write and produce an album for an aging pop diva that was a moderate success, but that resulted in a lawsuit filed by her ex-boyfriend, who was able to prove that he co-wrote many of her compositions)she was practically blacklisted by the industry. Ten years later she is reduced to ghostwriting for various pop acts, including new pop music sensation, Champ'elle (Hayden Panettiere).
While demoralized by her past failure and her present occupation, Ellie has found a happy equilibrium in her life, due to the material success that her ghostwriting has afforded her, and her new relationship with a pleasant, if emotionally distant and, sometimes, dismissive Oscar-winning composer Matthew Janklemann(Jason Segal).
While working with Champ'elle on her sophmore effort, "Goes Down Smooth" Ellie bonds with Champ'elle over shared childhood experiences, such as being "band nerds" and having had busy, disengaged parents. Just as Ellie becomes convinced that Champ'elle is more than just a spoiled rotten semi-talent, the latter becomes involved in a romantic relationship with another pop music artist, Eric Shyne(Justin Timberlake).
Champelle instructs Ellie to "write a hit" for her and Eric to sing as a duet. As a part of her writing process, Ellie begins to spend time in the studio with Eric(Champ'elle constantly makes excuses to avoid the studio, particularly chronic migraine headaches, and later Ellie sees paparazzi photos of her shopping and partying).
While working together to write a love song, Eric and Ellie share stories of lost and unrequited love, and before long are sharing lingering touches and meaningful stares. Though Eric seems to genuinely care for Champ'elle, she lets it slip to Ellie that she thinks that Eric is "a dork" and that she is only with him for the publicity and increased album sales.
Ellie realizes that she has developed real feelings for Eric and is torn between him and her new found friendship with Champ'elle. Things are further complicated, when Ellie and Eric take a break from working in the studio to have a late dinner and a paparazzo snaps a photo of them together, looking a little too cozy, that is then splashed all over the pages of every tabloid in the country.
Champ'elle feels threatened, Matthew feels neglected and Ellie is unsure of the full extent of Eric's feeling for her. Will Ellie risk it all for a relationship in the spotlight with a much younger man, or will she accept the status quo in order to keep the peace?
With an unbilled cameo by Charlize Theron as the aging pop diva, still pissed after all these years.

As compensation, Herb's bookie (Patton Oswalt) wants to use the Summers home for shooting the adult film "Lemony Lick-It's A Series of Unlubricated Events."
Herb convinces Marla and the kids to leave the house so the shooting can go down and he can pay off the debt without telling Marla, but Herb's goose is cooked when Marla and the kids return home to find the production is still underway!
An outraged Marla leaves to check into the airport-adjacent Ramada Inn and leaves Herb to fend for himself and the kids. But just as Marla is about ready to return realizing she's forgiven Herb for worse, she encounters Dr. Caleb Thorn (Liev Schreiber), a good-looking scientist with a passion for saving the endangered manatee.

Herb decides to win Marla back by saving a herd of manatees from a gang of abusing jet skiers. The gang initially agreed to go, but return after they hear Herb calling them 'rubes'. He attempts to organize the manatees to battle the gang, but they all flee.
Despite Herb's failure, Marla is impressed by his efforts to save the manatees and declares she is taking home "the real endangered species": "a devoted husband".
Sure r132 (Kate). You can be the gay bff. We'll put you in drag and you will be like Linda Hunt in The Year of Living Dangerously. That Oscar that eluded you in Almost Famous? This time, it will be YOURS.
Soooooo....for shits and giggles I took the r27 response of "Oh No You Didn't", copied it, pasted in pictures of Aniston and Beyonce and left it on the table in the breakroom. Within ten minutes, our admin, picked it up, read it and asked if this was out on DVD and went on to say how much she loves Jennifer Aniston. She then handed it to another co-worker who asked "Where did this come from?" I said "I think "People". " To which she replied "oh". And added she wished "Friends" was still on. I said, "It is. Constantly on TBS". "I don't get cable anymore" was the reply, "I'm saving up for Vegas".

"A Bitter Pill to Swallow"
Alexandra Duke (Jennifer Aniston) is a late '20s law student and feminist activist trying to get her Catholic university to cover birth control pills and who winds up called to Congress to talk about it when a contraception controversy flares up on Capitol Hill. Her political activism leaves her little time date, although she still finds time to unwind and socialize online under her screenname, "blondejustice."
Blitz Lindbergh (Woody Harrelson) is a middle-aged conservative shock jock addicted to oxycontin pills who in the middle of a drug-addled rant about this controversy refers to Alexandra as a "cunt" and "fucking whore" and winds up in hot water with his sponsors but with huge ratings. The thrice-divorced unreformed bachelor unsurprisingly finds his encounters with the ladies limited to prostitutes, but in his Internet life he is able to express a more sensitive and romantic side through the online persona, "loveaddict."
When "blondejustice" and "loveaddict" begin a cybersex relationship after meeting on a web forum for displaced Montreal Expos fans, it's love at first type! Soon they are trading e-mails, but because of Blitz's infamy and Alexandra's embarrassment over the birth control controversy they agree to set boundaries on the online relationship: no specifics, including no names, career or class information, or family connections.
Eventually though, this is not enough and both want to expand the relationship even while they are afraid to expose their identities. Blitz is more controversial and popular than ever with his ongoing and escalating attacks on Alexandra, who has just announced plans to run for Congress in Maryland after becoming a liberal media darling in the wake of the public sympathy she engendered and grace she showed after Blitz's attack.
So Blitz proposes a night of phone sex with the plan to enlist his horndog pal, Jimmy (David Spade), to say the things that he whispers in his ear during the phone call. An excited Alexandra is intrigued but doesn't agree until she can convince her slutbag BFF, Heather, (Chelsea Handler), to play her role in the call.
When the phone sex goes great for Heather and Jimmy... but not so great for Blitz and Alexandra, their friends each convince them that they have to get over their fears and hangups, and finally meet in person. Yet when Alexandra and Blitz meet atop the Empire State Building on Valentine's Day to discover their online loves are their real-life rivals, boy is it a bitter pill to swallow!

Deidre Collins (Jennifer Aniston) comes into an inheritance from her favourite aunt (Jennifer Coolidge) who has passed away. She gains the deed to Aunt Mariah's house, but there's a catch, the deed is under both her name, and her step cousin's, Gary (Justin Timberlake).
Having grown up being constantly picked on and tormented by Gary, the two find themselves in a hostile environment, both attempting to get each other to sign the deed over by setting up pranks, and making each other’s lives hell, in order to gain sole ownership.
With a whole bunch of hi-jinx and the cast ultimately falling for one and other, hilarity ensues.

Tagline: "My girl's gone for the weekend..."
Jennifer Aniston stars as Bianca Romeijn-Robertson, the girlfriend of a "straight" guy who cruises craigslist looking for hot M4M action while she's out of town.
Ever wonder what these "out-of-town" girlfriend's of straight guys looking for hot gay sex do for a living? Well, wonder no more. Romeijn-Robertson works as a dental hygienist, but has only ventured into her new dental career after having left the CIA working within the top-secret archaeological department. And, she's quite thankful to have finally left this high-energy and extremely stressful job.
Unfortunately, however, the joys of scrapping tarter, and "go ahead and spit for me" are numbered as the CIA has called her back for an assignment she's the only one knowledge about and qualified to do.
Her assignment is to uncover a mysterious weapon that secret Nazi scientists attempted to manufacture in Egypt as terrorists have located this partially built weapon and plan to finish the job and destroy all of mankind with it. So, that means, Bianca is going to be gone for the weekend and you know that means for her boyfriend...
"My Girlfriend is Out of Town" is an adventure sci-fi story about espionage, the mysteries of WWII, and the wonderment of uncovered truth.

A Miramax Film
Charlotte Merriwether Maypole (2013)
Jennifer Aniston stars as Charlotte Merriwether Maypole, the 29 year old trophy wife to Mortimer Maypole (Donald Sutherland) a mega wealthy hedge fund genius. She has it all, and her biggest problems are which color Porsche to drive on any given day, and dealing with her much older step children (Catherine Zeta Jones and Josh Lucas). That is, until her husband commits suicide and his Ponzi scheme is exposed. Turns out there is no money, and worse, Charlotte's name is all over the documents. Legally, she's on the hook for the missing billions!
This unique film, and mixture of drama and black comedy, brings to light the perils of modern culture. Join Charlotte as she at first resists dealing with her problems and then has a change of heart when an older couple Bert and Sylvie Vanderbeg (Doris Roberts and Peter O'Toole), their entire savings wiped out, come to live with her in the mansion (which is to be sold at auction).
Watch her fight, then come to care for her spoiled, bratty stepchildren who blame her to all their problems.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you will want to get to know Charlotte Merriwether Maypole
I have tears in my eyes from laughing so much. Genius one and all!
The only Jennifer Aniston film I've seen is "The Object of my Affection", so I have to ask. Is she still playing twentysomething women in her awful romcoms? A lot of the script ideas in this thread have her playing women in their late twenties? She isn't that delusional about herself, is she?
I think she should just go ahead and star in the Babs role in a remake of "What's Up, Doc?" She's already done the tribute photo shoot, so she might as well go all the way and give us her take on one of Babs' most popular roles.
Tales Of The City
In the first cinematic adaptation of Armistead Maupin's classic novels from the 70s, Jennifer Aniston takes on one of the 20th century's literary heroines. As fresh faced Mary-Ann Singleton, Aniston's wide eyed innocence is on display in abundance as she takes in the new world around her.
Featuring Zak Efron as Michael Tolliver, Channing Tatum as Brian, Lindsey Lohan as Mona Ramsey, two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey as Norman Williams and Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave as the mystical Anna Madrigan.
r166 Jenn is like CZJ. Perpetually 29, fresh faced, dewy...
'Pretty In Pixels' (2012)
Jennifer Aniston plays Cheryl, the lonely wife of a fey Republican candidate (Ryan Seacrest in his first big screen role). Battling feminine odour issues and seeking affirmation, she haunts a gay message board. When hubby stumbles upon one of her desperate online postings and its replies "Try shoving up a Glade PlugIn!" he campaigns to shut down the company -- that is, until compromising photos of him wearing little more than a leash at a 'Bear Meet' are leaked to the media. Wishing to save her husband further embarrassment, Cheryl/Aniston confronts the webmaster, with unexpected results.
R169 you take the prize.
Jennifer Aniston plays Annie Alinsky, a woman who, following the end of her childless marriage to an unfaithful actor, has devoted the past ten years as an egg donor and surrogate to Hollywood's gay elite. When Annie agrees to carry the child of closeted TV star Chad Plomer (Henry Cavill) and his high-powered publicist boyfriend Bryan Wahls (Christoph Waltz), she sees it as just another payday. But she's surprised to find a kindred spirit in Chad, himself a victim of an evil ex-boyfriend, and the two become BFFs. However, when Chad takes the baby-bumped Annie along to Rodeo Drive to help him choose wedding bands for his commitment ceremony, they're ambushed by the paps, and a flustered Chad tells them that Annie is his fiancee and carrying his child.
Now, in order to save Chad's career, Bryan must pull out all the stops to make Chad and Annie seem like a real couple, including offering Annie $1 million to play Chad's wife for the next three years. (Did we mention Annie could use that money to save her parents' dairy farm?) Annie is all to eager to help out her new friends, but things take an unexpected turn when Chad's old friend from the University of Pittsburgh, Sal Domenicci (Joe Manganiello, because I can't think of anyone else) shows up, and Annie realizes that he's the one. As her fake wedding to Chad approaches, and the baby's due date in sight, Annie must decide whether or not she can declare her love for Sal before he goes back to Pittsburgh to marry his own fiancee, or if she should go ahead and help Chad and Bryan, even if it means losing her last shot at true love. It all comes to a head at the elaborately staged, press-mobbed wedding ceremony!
And you better believe that Annie's water will break while she's wearing her wedding dress.
With David Burtka as the Zachary Quinto character.
"Young As Springtime In New York" (2013)
Fiona Sounder (Jennifer Aniston) and Felicity Huffer-Felch (Catherine Zeta-Jones) are two fresh-faced recent college grads who have come to the Big Apple to find careers, love and happiness. Felicity lands an assistant job at a blue-chip law firm, and Fiona becomes (in five minutes of screen-time) a rising tv news journalist. The two BFF's spend their spare time in a series of shopping montages at designer boutiques and hilariously singing off-key to Motown classics in the 2000 sq. ft. Soho loft (with 360-degree Manhattan views) they share as roommates.
These two young gals seem to have everything except....love! That's when Fiona's mother (Julia Roberts) and Felicity's mother (Meg Ryan) come to town and try to find eligible men for their two young single daughters. Hilarity ensues!
This is one of the funniest threads in a while!

"Friends: On The Rocks" (2020)- The cast of the hit sitcom is re-united for their 4th full-length feature film. All still unmarried at 50, the gang takes a single's cruise to Antarctica. Tragedy strikes as the ship hits an iceberg, and they have to escape on a lifeboat to the glacial mainland, surviving the only way they know how- with their wits!Tom Selleck: Captain Southpole. Ron Perlman: Bigfoot. Directed by Rocco Ritchie.
"All Hallows Eve" (2012)- Aniston portrays Evelyn Waddles, a frumpy Assistant Librarian somewhere in Massachusetts. Socially awkward, unambitious and dateless ("since we had card catalogues") she spends her evenings sewing and watching repeats of "Friends". Then... a mysterious Wiccan patron (Courtney Love) gives her a homemade "love potion"- and all hell breaks loose! Popper: Carson Kressley. Artie: Aidan Quinn. Mrs. Selwyn: Karen Black. Anton: Marilyn Manson.
"Sean Fisher" (2013)
Tagline: "Take it like a man..."
Welcome to Shenandoah Trailer Park, Community of 400 of the most pleasant, passionate, outspoken group this side of Howell, Michigan.
Meet Crystal Brewer, portrayed by Jennifer Aniston, and her gay best friend, Seth Deakins.
Crystal and Seth both have big dreams. Seth creams of New York City and fashion, and Crystal dreams of becoming a telephone switchboard operator for Vogue Magazine, like Lily Tomlin on Laugh In.
But, the only problem is, they don't have enough money to venture out east. Until one day Crystal is inspired by an MTV True Life documentary about how "lucrative" gay porn is.
However, that's easier said that done - especially for Seth. Upon being interviewed by the gay porn producer of "Sean Fisher", Seth and Crystal were told that Seth is gay, and that “Sean Fisher” only hires straight guys. After much convincing by Crystal, the "gay porn Angel" agrees to hire Seth, but only under one condition: he coaches Seth how to act "straight" while having gay sex. Under intense scrutiny, Seth is schooled on how to sit like a straight guy, how to walk like a straight guy, how to talk like a straight guy, how to interact with other guys like a straight guy, how to tongue guys like a straight guy, and to fuck like a straight guy having gay sex.
Does Seth succeed? Or, does he learn a valuable lesson about loving who he is no matter what. You'll have to wait and see!
Seth Fisher is a dark comedy about self-hate, homophobia, accepting yourself, following your dreams, and never giving up hope.
Jennifer Aniston as Crystal Brewer
A Miramax Film

What will Cindy do when Mike is kidnapped by the Three Brides of Dracula and is about to be sacrificed on the Dark Altar? Henry Winkler in a cameo as Count Dracula. 120 mins.
If anything comes of it, I'd like an executive producer credit, R174.
The great work of posters like R65 are being ruined by posters like R177 and R178. PLEASE, if you don't get the point of this thread, post somewhere else! GEEZ!
Am I the only one who didn't think "Wingwoman" was the best thing ever?
And I'm not just saying that out of jealousy for the lack of a greenlight for "of "Brief Liason" "Mission Aborted" and "A Bitter Pill to Swallow" (or "Bonfire of the Manatees" but that was just cribbing a Simpsons episode and seeing if anyone would notice... they didn't)...
The horrifying thing is that in today's Hollywood, several of these posts could actually be made into movies by Hollywood studios exactly as the posters wrote them. "Wingwoman" would have studios salivating at turning it into a movie. Seriously, that is depressing, but these posts are hilarious.
Give me some notes, R181.
And for the record, I'd totally greenlight "Mission Aborted".
I like "Brief Liaison", but you'd need to re-think casting a little bit. Bradley Cooper would make a better arrogant rival attorney/love interest (or Jason Bateman if you want a more "everyman" type), the klepto starlet needs to be played by Lea Michele (in her motion picture debut!)
The female air marshal needs to be played by Academy Award Winner Octavia Spencer ("I swear I only punched her out because I thought she was a dude!")
I like the Jennifer Aniston as Hitler movie.
Greenlight it, please.
I love to eat the shit of gay for pay porn stars.
R186: I think we know each other. This is freaky!
WAIT FOR IT...!
Thirtysomething book promoter Vicky St. Victor (Jennifer Aniston) has a thriving career, great friends (half the cast of BRIDESMAIDS), and no time for a boyfriend.
Her newest client is dashing, ne'er do well author Clive Devlin (Jack Davenport of SMASH) arrives in town to promote his bestselling novel CAD -it's hate (or is it?) at first sight.
After a fling at a boozy book party, Vicky realizes that she's late...uh oh! Time for gay best friend to rush to her side with an EPT test (George Clooney, in an sure to be award winning role - because don't worry ladies, HE'S NOT REALLY GAY)
But Vicky's so busy she can't be alone for two minutes to pee on the instant pregnancy stick and WAIT FOR IT - see the results.
"This Can't Be Happening" (2013)
Sharon Shakleford seems to have it all--a gorgeous, rich fiance, Charlie (James Marsden),and a rising career as a life-coach.
One fateful night, Sharon and Charlie attend a fundraiser, after which they begin a make-out session in the back of Charlie's limo. Between kisses and caresses, they decide to go back to Sharon's apartment. Sharon and Charlie begin to have sex in the living room and eventually, he presses her naked body (or the body double's naked body) against the living room window. The drapes are open, and everyone in the building across the street are treated to the sight of Sharon's naked, undulating body.
Moments later Jack Merriweather (Jonah Hill), is painting a He-Man action figure, when he looks out of his bedroom window to see Sharon, buck naked, getting pounded from behind. He quickly stands up to get a better look, knocking over the molten plastic he was using to restore the action figure, burning his lap and pubic area.
Due in part to his humiliation, and in part to the goading of his over-bearing mother with whom he has an unnaturally close relationship (Sharon Stone), Jack decides to sue Charlie and Sharon for five million dollars.
Though he is sure that the law suit will be found frivolous and go absolutely no where, it forces Charlie to admit a shameful secret--he's broke. All that is left is a few hundred thousand and his apartment--the rest was stolen by a Bernie Madoff type, who was once his boss. But, Charlie has a plan: Sharon can seduce the hapless and lonely Jack and convince him to drop the lawsuit.
Through much arguing and prodding, Sharon finally agrees, but soon finds that Jack is a kind, giving soul who not only restores people's old childhood toys for them, but restores old toys and gives them to various children's charities throughout the city. When he invites her to a children's cancer ward to hand out toys to sick little ones, all the while telling them detailed stories about the toys' origins, Sharon doubts that she can go through with the plan. When he gives her the Barbie doll she wanted for Christmas when she was seven, along with the Dreamhouse, Ken doll and all of the accessories, perfectly restored, she becomes afraid that she's falling in love with him.
Will Sharon continue with the charade, or will she confess to Jack, and risk losing him forever? Would she ever be able to prove herself worthy of him to his jealous, controlling mother, anyway?
Hey r174, how'd it go?
Not as I hoped R192. Everything was going great, the suits were practically whipping out their checkbooks, and then when we got to discussing casting choices, the only thing they wanted to hear was "Emma Stone." I said, "Aniston or nothing," and the meeting pretty much fell apart right there.
I guess I shouldn't have pitched it the weekend after "Wanderlust" opened.
Ha! That's hilarious if you are the real r174. I'd have just went with it. It would've been cool if a movie originated from this thread. New tagline: "Data Lounge, we created Wing Women last year"
Someone should email this thread (or at least the good posts) to Gawker or Nikki Finke.
Hey, Musto, you still post here? Give this thread a shout-out!
"Brother From Another Mother"
Riley Harper (Jennifer Aniston) is the hopelessly single career-driven press secretary to Sen. Joe Edmonds (Dennis Quaid), an aspiring presidential candidate with a publicly happy marriage to his wife Emily (Catherine O'Hara), but a roving eye in private.
After a late-night strategy session with Joe leads to an early-morning walk-of-shame for Riley, the two of them agree that it was a mistake and that it will never happen again and get back to the business of the campaign. But six weeks later, when Riley discovers her pregnancy on the eve of the first debate, this new baby puts a major bump in the political ambitions of the Mr. and Mrs. Edmonds.
Joe considers aborting the campaign when Riley won't abort her last chance at motherhood, but Emily along with Joe's Machiavellian campaign manager, Ace (Scott Wolf), encourages them to press on saying they've gone too far. Riley promises them that she won't tell anyone who got her pregnant just so long as she can keep her job, but Ace doesn't think that's a good idea with tabloids and oppo researchers just dying for the opportunity to expose a scandal like this.
Just then they get a call about Joe and Emily's slacker son, Trevor (Ashton Kutcher), getting busted with pot at the airport on the way back from a vacation in Jamaica. Riley snaps back into campaign mode and says they can take care of her baby business later and she'll prepare a statement on it... Joe mutters how he was hoping that Trevor would have found a wife and had a kid and settled down by now so he could finally grow up and stop causing political problems for him... But just then Riley realizes they have the solution to the campaign's problems right in front of them... they can say that Trevor IS THE FATHER!!!
Screwball hilarity ensues as the serious Riley and screwup Trevor are forced to portray a happy couple while they're keeping it a secret from the world that she's carrying his brother from another mother!
What a waste of finger power this thread has been. As if this actress is worth a script.
r197 = Reese Witherspoon
"This Can't Be Happening" is terrific!
"Debi Got Fat" (2012)- Debi Stankey was a cheerleader, dated the quarterback (Dermot Mulroney) and crowned homecoming queen. But since grad, things have not gone as promised. Eschewing college to marry studly motorcycle mechanic Doug (Val Kilmer), four kids later she is separated, obese and on food stamps. And resisting her best friend's (Minnie Driver) efforts to encourage her to attend their 25th H.S. reunion. Her mom (Jane Fonda) a Type-A clotheshorse, is no help ("Couldn't you fast instead of fastfood?!"). Then a bi personal trainer neighbor (Benicio del Toro) takes her under his wing... Directed by Penny Marshall. Special effects by Rob Bottin.
Can somebody write a movie about Jennifer Aniston starring as a professional fister who fists men for a living yet yearns for real love? She then finds it with the help of her gay best friend.
r195 I'd rather they didn't!
THREE MEN AND A BABY DOLL
Ryan Gosling, Chris Pine, and Zac Efron are puzzled by their new roommate Celeste (Jennifer Aniston), who wears baby clothes, sleeps in a crib, and sucks her thumb.
Can somebody write a movie about Jennifer Aniston starring as a Real Doll of a lonely 50- something played by Billy Bob Thorton come to life?
William Knighton (Donald Sutherland) is one of the most revered names in sports. His family owns and operates The Association for Car Auto Racing (ACAR), which sanctions and governs auto racing sports events throughout the world. Upon learning he has stage IV throat cancer, William announces his only son, Gunner (Eric Dane), as the successor to his billion-dollar empire. However, things take a tragic turn when William and Gunner are unexpectedly killed in a plane crash.
In order to ensure ACAR remains in the Knighton family, his widow, Abby (Judith Chapman), convinces the board of directors to name their oldest daughter Kathleen (Jennifer Aniston) as the new CEO! The only catch is, Kathleen is an irresponsible party girl who has never cared about anything more than the money and access being a Knighton has provided her. Abby is confident that she can use her daughter to finalize a deal that William was against--the sale of ACAR to a European racing conglomerate--however, things don't exactly go as planned.
With the help of William's most-trusted advisor, Cal (Matthew McConaughey), Kathleen shows the business savvy her father always knew she had!
Zac Efron as Rand Evans, the hottest ACAR driver of the moment
Paul Bettany as Roger Phillips, Kathleen's longtime fiance/harshest critic

Jennifer Aniston in a Lifetime Original movie -
"Cunt! The Patricia Heaton Story"
r11 and r65.. are you still around?
I wondered if you would email me if I gave you an address? Just wanted to ask two really quick questions and don't want to hijack the thread any further! Let me know and I'll post my address.
What did you want to ask, R208?
If you're up for it, I'd rather do it by email. Not intrusive. I'll set up an address for you to email me if that's OK and post it. Thanks
Wingwoman = Hitch
Sure, no problem.
Thanks r212 It's email@example.com I'll explain when I hear from you!
R197, have you heard of the concept of satire?
Can somebody write an inspired documentary type movie about a porn star, portrayed by Jennifer Aniston preparing to get gang banged by one thousand guys? Kind of like Waiting for Guffman.
The cameras would follow her on her journey as she trains her vagina to take one thousand cock. She would also train to get DP'd. She would train through going to the gym, diet, prayer, etc. The woman who ices her vagina inbetween takes could be played by Goldie Hawn.
Is Hitch the movie Wingwoman rips off?
lol Wingwoman is Hitch II. I love the idea though of somebody stealing ideas and making them into Jennifer Aniston movie. That would be a great Jennifer Aniston movie in of itself.
Can somebody write a horror movie about about a struggling writer who becomes caretaker of the haunted Underlook Motel for the winter season. But, ultimately attacks his wife, played by Jennifer Aniston, and their son, Donny with an axe. Call it, The Blinding.
Maybe the Wingwoman writer can write it. He's a creative genius.
A Riva Runs Through Him(2012) Jennifer Anniston stars as Riva Bragg Noble, the young wife of Texas politican Hale Noble(Dennis Quaid). Riva's past as a Penthouse Pet of The Month shocks the high society of Houston, but her husband stands in support of her. His grown children, MaryLinda(Hayley Duff) and Tripp(D.J. Cortona) plot with their mother, Allisandra(Kim Cattrall) to get Riva out of their father's life. Allisandra brings Riva's first husband, Dutch Bragg(Brad Rowe) to Houston to reveal their marriage was never annulled. Hale suffers a heart attack at the news of this revealation and it's a race to the death to see who will win, in the three battle of wills for the Noble fortune. Riva in flashbacks is played by S'hane Grimes.
The actress rivals any twenty-something on the red carpet and on film - just look at her next to Brooklyn Decker in Just Go With It - but Jennifer admits the 'new crop' are starting to make her aware of her post-40 age.
'You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are twenty-something, or the new crop of actresses and think, "Aren’t we kind of the same age?" You lose perspective.
'Or being offered the part of a woman with a 17-year-old child. It’s like, "I’m not old enough to have a 17-year-old!" Then you realise, well, yeah, you are.
But she adds: 'I don’t feel my age. I feel young every day.'
"20... Something" (2014)- Jennifer Aniston won an Oscar* for her portrayal of Michelle Duggar (who died after a brave battle with ovarian cancer in 2013). The film chronicles her life from first date with future husband Jim Bob (Kirk Cameron) after a religious conversion, to the birth of her first child Joshua, through her last pregnancy (via in vitro fertilization)- the quintuplets Japheth, Jasper, JLo, Jermajesty and Jayonce'. Also starring Dyan Cannon and Orson Bean as Michelle's parents. Directed by Toby Keith.
I think the ideas in this thread are better, R220!
[quote]Jennifer Aniston is circling We’re The Millers, the New Line comedy about a pot dealer who pulls together a fake wife and two kids to pose as an RV road-tripping family so that he can smuggle 1000 pounds of pot cross country. Dodgeball‘s Rawson Thurber is directing. Aniston is in talks to play the fake wife, who’s actually a hooker. Her Horrible Bosses costar Jason Sudeikis is eying the role of the family patriarch (he’s the pot smuggler). The kids are juvenile delinquents.
Where is the guy Wingwoman dude who stole the Hitch concept? Sued yet?
Jen has no summer movie for 2012?
r193, describing his pitch was the highlight of the thread for me. "I said, 'Aniston or nothing,' and the meeting pretty much fell apart right there."
I was laughing out loud then, and it just made me smile.
Jennifer Anniston plays Marci Griffords, who is convinced by her mother (Glenn Close in a cameo role) to take a cross-country road trip from Boston to LA with her estranged sister Grace (Kristen Wiig). What mom didn't say is that when they arrive in LA, Grace is going into the nuthouse for treatment for her ever-increasing paranoia. Seems Grace thinks she is Sherlock Holmes, detective extraordinaire. And that makes Marci Dr. Watson for the duration of the trip.
You'll laugh, then cry, then laugh while crying as these two ladies cross the US, solving some cases and exploring the bonds of sisterhood.
With Jessica Lange as Grace's psychiatrist, Professor Moriarty, and Luke Evans as a hitchhiker (or is he something more???)
I'm having writers block at the moment so just throwing out some potential title names to restart this thread in honor of Nora Ephron's passing...

Illegal Love (2013)
Janet Brewster is the far right governor of a southwestern state. As a busy career gal, she has no time for love, and is in the process of rounding up all the brown people in her state to send them back to Mexico. Unfortunately for her, she falls for Jose (Gerard Butler in tan makeup) a proud Mexican law student who teaches her a thing or two about life and love. Co-starring Lupe Ontiveros as Jose's mother.
“Griefcase” (2012) - Lara Dearborne, successful Hamptons real estate agent (Jennifer Aniston), finds out that her womanizing, poor father (Nick Nolte) is marrying her rival at work, Cloris Alard (Lucy Punch.) She figures Cloris has an ulterior motive, so she hires Arthur “Ace” Devine, a snarky private investigator (Josh Brolin). Her attraction to him conflicts with her deteriorating relationship with Jason, an artistic, uninterested boyfriend (Gerard Butler, so she can laugh about their reuniting when he plays a different character.)

Someone was asking for this thread.
Here you go.
I wonder if any of these movies were picked up. Her next movie "We're the Millers" sounds like something that would be concocted here.
What's really cracking me up about this thread are the various inappropriate ages Jennifer is supposed to be in these movies.
This was one of the best DL threads in ages.
This also sounds like a plot from this thread:
[quote]A Charlie Kaufman-esque mind-bender, the premise finds mild-mannered Paul (Duplass) and his feisty sister Abby (Aniston) setting out to change the box storage world with Paul’s invention of the 5-sided box. Kingsley plays a maniacal box magnate who seeks to thwart Paul and Abby’s success. Meanwhile, the invention also risks ripping a giant hole in the fabric of the universe. When Paul realizes the damage he’s causing, he races against time to put the galaxy back in order and save the girl of his dreams.
Cathy Alexander (Jen) is a movie star specializing in old-hat grade B rom coms which make money but bore the shit out of her.

Her old friend Lizzie (Toni Collette) a Twin Cities casting director comes to the rescue. Much to the chagrin of her agent (Stanley Tucci) and current boy toy, Brock (Ryan Kwanten), a model and aspiring actor, Cathy jumps at the chance to star in a Guthrie production of The Duchess of Malfi directed by her ex-husband, Lothar Michaels (Gregg Kinear, sporting a bad Austrian accent). Will it end in tragedy or comedy? It's no one's guess.
R231 Good, but you left out the cameo role for Ina Garten.
I missed this thread too! Glad it's back!

Still, Brie and Izzy enjoy their work. Their only problem is the oafish clients who constantly hit on Brie, forcing her to "admit" that she and Izzy are lesbian partners. It seems that back in their sorority days, the two would make out for the entertainment of their boyfriends, and —JUST ONCE!— they went all the way, to see what it was like. ("Bucket list, done!" they laughingly recount to a bemused Milo at dinner one night, bumping fists at the memory.)
So now, if a man comes on too strong (like New York Knicks owner RAND McNULTY [Vince Vaughn in a cameo role]), Brie simply pulls a giggling Izzy onto her lap, giving the sap teasing eyes until he gets the hint…and sometimes an eyeful!

At first put off, Brie eventually draws closer to Melba, watching "The Ice Queen's" perfectionist facade melt as she deals with her terminally-ill mother, REGINA (Irma P. Hall), and Brie wonders if she could ever really have a relationship with a woman. Was it really "Just Once" for her and Izzy…or has she been a lesbian in denial all along?
And now that Izzy and Milo are starting to have problems, does that mean that jealousy is rearing its ugly head? Hunter, Melba, or Izzy? Can Brie make the right choice…JUST ONCE???
