As a poet I always had a weakness for coercion. Limericks are probably my favorite because they are fast and concise, and the ruby patterns almost inevitably make them hilarious.
One of my favorite Limericks is an unforgettable Renee Zellweger 2001 classic named Bridget Jones Diary,
The limerick goes like this:
Once upon a time there was a woman from Ealing
Who had a special feeling?
She lay on her back,
And opened her crack
And pissing on the whole ceiling.
This is my favorite limerick in a movie, but what about a favorite movie? A a limerick? These redditors They have taken poetry to the next level by describing their favorite films exclusively with Limerick.
How many of these films can you guess when you read the poem? No scams!
He was not a creature of pomp,
He was forced to take a break
He saved a beautiful girl,
With the help of his donkey,
Because they would not come from his swamp.

The answer is Shrek. Fun, right?
I served on a ship when back,
It went down with twelve hundred men.
The sharks ate the crew,
Farewell and goodbye,
I will never wear a life jacket again.

Did you guess? throat? If you had, you would be right!
Our hero is really a sinner,
Although he makes the young Clarice the winner.
From his cell he solves crimes
His escape is sublime,
Now he has an old friend for dinner.

The movie is silence of the Lambs, Impeccable movie, by the way.
Once upon a time there was a silly old bear
Who played with a piglet and rabbits
His friend, that is a human
It is now played by Ewan
And they make the happiest couple

The movie in this Limerick is Christopher Robin.
The man has lost his things in a fire
Met a friend whom he began to admire
After fat bags they stole
It got out of control
Then he found out why he was so tired.

Do not talk about it Fight Club,
A man with a very big heart
Gives a red rose at the beginning of his love.
But then things go south,
And there is a weapon in his mouth,
He tore him apart for his Lisa!

You were right, if you guessed it My cousin Vinny.
Once upon a time there was a boy with a monkey
Who conjured up such a spirit
He was dressed like a prince
So that he could convince
He was not a fibber to the princess.

The movie in this Limerick is Aladdin,
Hello, my name is Dory,
I want to tell you a story
But sometimes I forget
All the people I met.
Hello, my name is Dory.

An old man with a house in the sky
Tied balloons for it to fly
A scout came too
And a dog who loves you
But the opening always makes me cry

Once upon a time, it was a popular boy
Who lived in Chicago, Illinois.
He played hooky for a day
to the dismay of his director
But gave his friend much pleasure.

Of course it is Ferris Bueller's rest day,
A boy who limped once
Was bullied and ran like a wimp
After a bit of tension
And many events
He started Bubba Gump Shrimp.
(submitted by Whigget)
The answer was Forrest Gump, moron!
The man, caught the same day,
is planning everything to go his own way.
But he finds out slowly,
That's not what love is about.
Nevertheless, he will probably stay in Punxsutawney.

Ah, literally timeless Groundhog Day.
Once upon a time there was a wonderful ship
Who made a very fast journey

With her upstairs
While Jack unfortunately took a cold bath.

The world you know is not real
Computers control what you feel
Wake up, as with us
The spoon is not like that
The bad guys are just bits, bytes and steel.

Yup, the movie in question is The matrix,
It's a story that's a bit unbelievable:
A princess is now irretrievable.
When a man is completely black
Start from the back
The kidnapper says, "Unthinkable!"

Nothing like The princess bride to bring me back to my youth.
Shoemaking scared Miguel
He longed to make music instead
He longed for glory
But learned his true story
One night in the land of the dead.

The answer is nothing but this heartwarming Pixar movie, Coco.
His wife was a bit whiny
But his love gave him so much finer thoughts
Because they needed more money
He said, "Honeybunny,
I got it! Let's rob a diner! "

And now there is hell to pay.

Once upon a time there was a man with a dream
"Put a dream in a dream!" He would scream
There is a top in the end
And we all do so
That we definitely knows what it means.
