    If they made a movie based on your life, what genre would it be and what would the critics say about it? You can also give it a name if you want.

    Not sure about a movie, but I've been told that the television show that best describes my life is House.

    Take that as you will... :p

    Mine would look like Sharon Stone uncrossing her legs in Basic Instinct.

    That reminds me: I need to shave tomorrow.

    It would be one of those deep, inner-looking, introverted style of movies where you see the main character face a variety of struggles, and the plot revolves around the emotions and feelings of that character.

    I would go to watch it in the theatre and, like most movies I see, I'd be disappointed and want my money back.

    My life's story would probably be a lot like Easy Money, only without all the money :(

    I see what you did there :D No, I was actually talking about the movie with Rodney Dangerfield, where nothing seems to go his way (although it eventually does go his way, whether he likes it or not). Great movie.

    Weird Science.

    I think the OP is looking for something deeper but the thread simply can't go that way. It's too fun as is. ;)

    Mine would be riveting. Would fall somewhere between the excitement of a documentary about gastropod sex and a biopic on the star wars kid.

    An unpredictable mix of Annie Hall, Forrest Gump, Tom and Viv, and Ice Storm... What do you call that?

    ... and I would be played by David Duchovny... uncanny resemblance.

    Dark Comedy...

    Critics would probably go

    " what drugs was the script writer on to write this!?!"

    " too absurd to be believable"

    " left us feeling much better about our lives"
    :)

    Mine would be an indie:

    • Cost $250M USD to produce
    • Take $12.25 at the box office after five years
    • Banned at Sundance
    • Too depressing for the Germans
    • Too existential for the French
    • Too obscure for the Sewdes
    • Not enough Adam Sandler for the Americans

    Ah, amazingly similar to what my movie would be like. We could've met up and made the basis for a sequel Alien vs Predator style.

    My movie could possible also have been written as some kind of psycho thriller drama instead of a dark comedy. :p

    Boring, regular stuff like Wonder Years. What interesting things that I did according to what a movie thinks is script worthy is not so interesting in real life (let's say like working in a hospital, traveling to a strange area depicted in movies, going to first rock concert, first date, etc.) that it would probably be too boring to show.

    When I was a kid, I asked a detective what his job was like and he told me, "Not like TV" and "writing a lot of reports". When I asked a retired Air Force pilot he said his whole life was that of a "truck driver in the sky". Life is usually pretty safe and boring for most people thus the popularity of super hero movies or TV shows like "24".
