Movies about board games, apparently! "People really seem to respond to those," Kaling recalls the executives tell her. Based on that eye-opener, she offers a list of 14 titles that may be "soon coming to a theater near you in the future." They aren't, of course, but that doesn't make them any less on-point.
'Apples to Apples 4D' (The audience is pummelled with apples at the end of the movie.)
'Sharks vs. Volcanoes'
'King Tut vs. King Kong'
'Streptococcus vs. Candidiasis' (Strep Throat vs. Yeast Infection)
'Street Stupid' ('Street Smart' sequel)
'The Untitled Liam Neeson Vendetta Project'
'Human Quilt' (horror movie)
'The Cute Bear from Those Toilet-Paper Ads Movie'
Not bad -- especially the 'Untitled Liam Neeson Vendetta Project.' Read the full excerpt of Kaling's book over at the New Yorker. It arrives in stores on Nov. 1.
