Bad plot synopses

So a friend of mine was told he should see the movie “Harold & Maude” (which, for those of you who have not seen it, is an awesome movie) and he said that IMDB said it was a movie about a teenage boy who wants to marry an 80-year-old woman. I assured him that the plot synopsis really falls short of selling what is an excellent movie, and it was like saying

“Lord of the Rings is a story about these midgets that go for a walk because they want to return some jewelry they stole.”

Anyway, in case you haven’t figured it out, I’m starting this thread to challenge people to come up with plot lame synopses of awesome movies/books/whatever.
