Yesterday, we asked you to give an ‘elevator pitch’ for Bodyguard 2.

On offer were four tickets to see an exclusive screening of The Bodyguard (1992) on March 28 at selected ODEON cinemas.

We have whittled down the entries to five pitches.

Daisy Chainsaw‘s pitch:

Bodyguard 2: Electric Boogaloo. Frank Farmer’s son by a heretofore unmentioned ex wife, (Liam Hemsworth) follows in his father’s footsteps protecting former child star turned wild child Wiley Myrus (Miley Cyrus), famous for her role as Dakota North, a teenage singer who nobody recognised without her wig. She’s been getting threats from an anonymous source that eventually turns out to be Farmer’s other son (Chris Hemsworth).

Optimus Grime‘s pitch:

Having prevented so many assassination attempts on various clients Frank finds there’s a hit out on him and at his age HE needs a bodyguard, who of course in these modern times, is a woman. Hilarity ensues in Bodyguard 2 – The Bodyguard’s Bodyguard

Weldoninhio‘s pitch

Bodyguard 2: Bodyguard Harder. Frank is protecting a billionaire in the middle of a messy divorce, everything is almost finalised and the divorce will be done and dusted in 48 hours. His client is worried that his ex will try and bump him off before the divorce gets over the line so that she can keep his fortune. With just the weekend to go, Frank’s client is poisoned. With his last few breaths, he asks Frank to pretend he is still alive until the divorce is through. Frank, dutybound, agrees. Cue, hilarious Weekend At Bernie’s comedy as Frank tries to keep his client out of the way of doctors, his ex-wife and bullets and bombs.

Cloud‘s pitch:

‘It opens with Rachel Marron’s death, Frank Farmer tweets: ‘Rachel has passed away. RIP u will live on forever. Cant believe it. I wanna run to u. Really cant believe this. @’.  The rest of it will just write itself.

Cool Hand Lucan’s pitch:

Bodyguard 2: Riverguard. Michael Flatley plays both the role of bodyguard and entertainment star. The two Flatleys fall in love with each coz they’re both rides. The third act is largely CGI gay porn set to a trad Irish soundtrack.

Only YOU can decide.

Lines must close at 7pm MIDNIGHT!

All of the proceeds and donations from the screening will go to the services and support that Dublin Simon Community offer people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow and Meath.

‘Eden’ follows Adam throughout a day in his life living on the streets of Dublin, a man who has been left homeless in the wake of the Irish financial crisis.

Yesterday we gave YOU the opportunity to win one of three adult passes to any Odeon cinema nationwide, in celebration of cinema giant’s 4-for-3 Awards Season offer.

All you had to do was fill in the following sentence.

“…And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to_____________________________________[name of movie, actor/actress, etc]’

*tears open envelope*

Liam Deliverance: “The award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to My Fair Lady which robbed Dr. Strangelove (How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb) for the best picture Oscar in 1965. The former was directed by George Cukor and was the tale of “Eliza Doolittle”, played by Audrey Hepburn, an over long yarn (almost 3 hours) about a cockney flower seller who was taught to talk proper like in a rags to riches borefest. Dr Strangelove, directed by Stanley Kubrick, was a satirical look at nuclear conflict between the US and Russia during the cold war era. It is a film that is very funny despite the seriousness of the subject matter, it lives long in the memory and is a classic that should be watched by all.”

Clampers Outside: “The award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to Forrest Gumps 1994 ‘Best Picture’ win…. beating both Pulp Fiction AND The Shawshank Redemption…. a travesty, in fairness…. but life’s like that, like a box of chocolates.”

Ben: “The award for the least deserving Academy Award goes to…Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side (2009). I’ve nothing against the film. It’s the kind of movie you would happily sit through on TV on a rainy Sunday afternoon, but it – or its cast – are about as deserving of an Oscar as Coronation Street.”

Thanks all
