The American Theater

I've got a great idea for a movie.

It's about a group of rich kids who are largely ignored by their parents. Emboldened by this freedom, the kids wreak havoc all over the place. They party like crazy. Gamble. Fuck everything that moves.

Then, one day, their money runs out. So they run crying back to their parents, who know that their kids will ultimately be the ones taking care of them, so they shower them with more cash.

Back-story: to make sure their kids get as much money as possible, the parents all decide to free up cash by firing their housekeepers, accountants, nannies, drivers, chefs, gardeners, etc.

Fast forward two years. The kids have gone back to their partying, gambling, fuck-everything-that-moves ways. Life is good. The money is flowing faster than they can spend it.

But they're bored. So they decide to go back to their hometown and visit the housekeepers, nannies, accountants, chefs and gardeners that their parents had to fire a few years back. They scour the town to make sure they find each one. Then, they line them up and kick every single one of them in the crotch, repeatedly.

That's it. That's the movie. Whaddya think?

Ooh, I forgot to mention the title. It's called "The American Economy".
