8 Movie Re-writes That Could Help Make Bocce Famous
Ernest Goes To Campo - We reach peak bocce buffoonery by adding an o to Ernest Goes to Camp. Imagine all the balls jokes!
Gran Torino - “Get Off My Lawn” gets a refreshing makeover when we come to find out Clint Eastwood was simply pointing a rifle at teenagers over a dispute on the bocce court.
The Green Mile - The story of the longest bocce court on earth, also inspired by a true story
Fight Club - Where the focus is less getting out ever-growing toxic masculinity and more on forming the community to give back, forming longer standing friendships, and everyone acknowledging that abs aren't really that important
The Irishman - Before Scorsese discovered de-aging CGI, rumor has it the whole movie was meant to take place over the prison game of bocce.
Field of Dreams - Instead of dead ball players coming out of the corn fields, we have mostly live people who got lost trying to find this underground bocce game. Also it's about 20 minutes shorter because the courts are quicker to set up.
The Matrix - This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You roll the blue ball —the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You roll the red ball—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.
White Men Can’t Jump - Ok, here me out: Gloria is obsessed with bocce ball instead of Jeopardy. You lose the ‘Babe Ruth’ joke but imagine all of the errant volos adding to the hilarity!
