Hollywood’s Worst of the Worst Movie Pitches...EVER!!! Later Made into an Actual Movie

By Robert W. Armijo


Mr. Big Shot Movie Studio Executive: 

“Tell me what you got in 30 seconds or less.”

Pitchman: 

“It’s a story about a young Hassidic Jewish girl struggling to understand the wondrous almost mystical world of horticulture, 
while considering converting to vegetarianism out of 
pure frustration...But really it’s a universal story that has been tested and proven to have broad demographic popular appeal.”

Mr. Big Shot Movie Studio Executive: 

“Ooo'kaay. So who’s the antagonist?”

Pitchman: 

“Ignorance and prejudice.”

Mr. Big Shot Movie Studio Executive: 

“Ignorance and prejudice? You got me hooked. 
Continue.” 

Pitchman: 

“However, no matter how hard she studies she just can’t seem to understand horticulture. So one day she decides to penetrate the mysterious green world of photosynthesis by going undercover, disguised as organic matter, or a seed.”

Mr. Big Shot Movie Studio Executive: 

“Wait a minute. A seed?”

Pitchman: 

“A seed.”

Mr. Big Shot Movie Studio Executive: 

“Well, I guess with today’s computer generated imagery (CGI) technology anything is possible. Tell me what is the title of your movie?”

Pitchman: 

“Lentil.”

Later, after several rewrites, the movie was made and released. 
However, it was also re-titled as Yentl (circa 1983)
