So we've got our main character, Jude (just like Hey Jude! I'm so clever). Jude moved to America from England illegally and fell in love with his best friend's younger sister, Lucy! (you know, from that other
Beatles song? The one about diamonds in the sky!) But Lucy has a boyfriend and Jude decided to move to New York City. Thankfully, Lucy's boyfriend was drafted into Viet Nam and was horribly killed. So she then decides to move with her older brother and Jude! A day after Lucy moves to New York, and probably only about three or four days since her old, dead, boyfriend was brutally murdered in a war, she falls for Jude and sleeps with him! At the same time covering Beatles songs we all know and love! Right? I mean, it's the Beatles! We ALL love the Beatles!
Things get a little complicated and I think we should go the route of Yellow Submarine where nothing really makes sense, all at the same time progressing Jude and Lucy's love story WHILE SINGING BEATLES SONGS! We'll get great musical artists like BONO and EDDIE IZZARD! Yes! Eddie Izzard will be in the movie! Not a musician, you say? Who cares? IT'S ACROSS THE FUCKING UNIVERSE!
And now we'll introduce a whole slew of characters like Prudence! And she's a lesbian from Nowhere! She gets trapped in the closet and she finally comes out to be a whole new person! Lucy's older brother gets drafted and goes to the Army Recruiting Center where we'll have Uncle Sam singing I Want You So Bad. He'll be shipped off to Viet Nam and show just how horrible and gruesome war is, with some tits here and there.
OK I've changed my mind on the whole Yellow Submarine thing and now I think it'd be best to make this movie all political and about war. And racial issues. Because that's really relevant, you know? All while singing BEATLES SONGS!
So Jude finally gets caught by the government and sent back to England. Where he decides that he doesn't care about anything but finding Lucy again. So he goes back to New York and he hears all the people he's been living with on a rooftop for one last performance and they're singing...Hey Jude! He's drawn onto the top of the building to find all of his friends! But...no Lucy. The oppressive police come to the top of the building to stop the ruckus. Jude is the only one left on the roof with nothing but a microphone. So he does the only thing he can do. SING SOME BEATLES SONGS until Lucy hears him and goes to the top of the roof where they kiss one last time and the movie ends!
What do you guys think? Genius, perhaps?
