How about a movie pitch which somehow has to involve food as a central point? Examples? A horror movie where a giant zucchini attacks Manhattan, a romantic comedy set inside a Starbucks, a time travel story where somebody goes back in time and stops the first ox from being domesticated, etc.
Great idea, and this time you're pitching a December Holiday Movie that revolves around food. Sappy, sour, sweet, succulent...
How's about Night of the (Living) Radishes?, which falls on December 23rd, in Oaxaca, Mexico.
This year, the annual radish sculpting contest (I am not making this part up---it happens, folks)has turned ugly. A British anthropologist (Alan Rickman) has discovered that the local WalMart has introduced a line of Radish Sculptures which might bring to an end the centuries-old tradition of artisanal radish scupture.
He falls in love with the fiery and beautiful Mayoress (Selma Hayak) and they join together (in more ways than one! Radishes are aphrodisiac to these lovers) to convince the citizenry to Fight Back. (Think Norma Rae, Erin B. and The English Patient.)
Then they find out that the radishes have their own revenge planned. These are ravenous ravening red root vegetables.
