5 Internet Memes Probably Coming To A Theater Near You

By Jodi Clager | Seriously Random Lists | May 30, 2013 | Comments ()


Did you hear? You guys did it. You finally did it. Tard the Grumpy Cat is getting her own movie and it will be directed by Todd Garner (Jack and Jill, Here Comes the Boom, Zookeeper). Tard's feature film debut will reportedly center around the cat and her family. Tard will also speak like Garfield. So, good job, internet. Lest you think this will be the last meme-turned-feature-film, I've made a list of probable contenders. Jerks.

1. The Most Interesting Man in the World


Sure, he's already a spokesman for the delicious Dos Equis, but we can go deeper. Let's explore TMIMITW's origins. How did he become such a bad ass? Did he really make Chuck Norris cry? What does he do for a living? The current TMIMITW could be telling his life story to an enraptured group of people while drinking Dos Equis and being stalked by assassins. BOOM! MOVIE'D!

2. Success Kid


Disney is grabbing this one and making it into a talking baby movie. Success Kid inadvertently becomes entangled with the mob when he grabs a teddy bear that looks like his, but was really filled with money. The pair of bumbling mobsters pursue Success Kid, but are foiled at every turn as everything turns out better than expected for him.

3. Overly Attached Girlfriend


Overly Attached Girlfriend seems normal at first. She's attentive and sweet and really fun to be around. Then she begins commenting on events she wasn't present for, like how you had trouble banging out that deuce this morning or how your locker combination wouldn't work. Things start going all Swimfan on your ass. The movie ends with her in a psychiatric ward, obsessing over an orderly.

4. Ermahgerd Girl


This would feature Ermahgerd Girl as the outcast at her school. She doesn't realize no one actually likes her and continues on with reading her Goosebumps series. Eventually, her Goosebumps knowledge helps her school win a trivia contest and people start using her catch phrase "Ermahgerd" as the entire school embraces her.

5. Good Guy Greg


This is obviously a stoner comedy. Good Guy Greg and his buddies settle in for a night of smoking blunts when they are interrupted by a girl that needs some assistance. Good Guy Greg is the only one of his buddies to volunteer to help the girl and they embark on an adventure filled with Greg doing nice stuff for people and getting the girl.

If any of these get made, you only have yourself to blame. And possibly, to a lesser extent, me.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Anyone else remember those old 80s shows where the most interesting man in the world was just a walk-on actor.

  • e jerry powell

    I would pay good money to see Chuck Norris in a dress. I might even leave the house and go into a movie theater.

    Now that I think about it, has anybody heard how Tim Curry's recovery is going?

  • AnusTart

    Safety Not Guaranteed is based on a meme and that was a fucking great movie.

  • Rooks

    As a giraffe supporter... these are more familiar to me than my own siblings by now. Also, needs more Confession Bear, Moon Moon and Sudden Clarity Clarence.

  • Jerce

    Oh, I adore Sudden Clarity Clarence, nearly as much as Morally Outraged Pit Bull.

  • googergieger

    Didn't they do a t.v. show based on the talking cavemen in the Geico commercials? And didn't they try to do a movie with the baby from the commercials about some financial website? People is dumb.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I always think of Patton Oswalt when I see Success Kid.

  • donnasaurus

    I was trying desperately to think of whom he reminded me! Exactly!

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I'd watch the Most Interesting Man in the World if... I'm not sure, exactly, but it feels very doable. Write him kind of like the Doctor, only he clearly smells of whiskey at all times kind of thing, and is willing to have sex at any moment.

    Oh. So write him like Jack Harkness. But in a sort of Indiana Jones meets non-sucky-Hangover plots kinda way.

  • Bedewcrock

    I have a crush on the actor they use for the young Most Interesting Man in the World.....i'd watch that movie.

  • I was going to say something about there being potential for a good horror movie out of Overly Attached Girlfriend, but that's already an entire subgenre of horror/thriller, so no. Not even in jest.

  • dizzylucy

    Tim Curry in the Blueberry. Yes.

  • lowercase_ryan

    To show you how insanely accurate the Good Guy Greg meme is, I legitimately want that movie to get made. I want good things for Greg.

  • And y'all thought 'World War Z' was bad. See, it can always be worse.

  • MichaelAndTheArgonauts

    Ok, I laughed out loud at my desk at the Swedish Chef and Ermahgerd girl meme. I seriously had to scroll down to stop laughing. People were looking at me...

  • llp

    For some reason, the Ermagherd Girl has not ceased to be funny for me. When I get to go grocery shopping by myself (score!) sometimes I catch myself mumbling the names of the things you can buy in an Ermagherd pronunciation. "Ermagherd, ersh crerm issh on shale."

    I blame the kids for scrambling my brains.

  • Jerce


    Thank you for slightly easing my concerns for my own sanity.

    Also, apparently Grumpy Cat is never not going to be funny to me.

  • llp

    AH LERVE GRUMPRAY CAHRT TEHR. I can make an awesome Grumpy Cat face and I use it at work, on the regular. I am very popular with the clients.

    I am not sure if this information continues to assuage your concerns about your mental health.
