Oft-used sketch comedy plot to be used for movie

I guess maybe this plot could hold up to something longer than a 3-minute sketch...

Ha. I like that idea. But yeah, don't know if it can carry an entire film though.

Of course it can. Are you even kidding? Here, let me write it for you.

1st Act: Intro of disgruntled henchman and sidekick, as hero and villain head towards final battle, ending in action sequence where hero and villain kill each other.

2nd Act: Henchman & Sidekick slowly learn to use the weapons left to them by their masters, probably come into conflict in bigger action sequence.

3rd Act: Henchman & Sidekick return to fight each other in EXACT SAME PLACE as climactic battle of hero and villain. They realize that they don't have to fall into the same pattern their masters fell into, and decide to collaborate to stop global disaster.

Alternate third act twist: Hero and Villain faked their deaths, and sidekick and henchman team up to stop them.

BAM. DONE. WRITTEN. EASY. I'M AMAZING.

Okay, sure, but where's the romance?

Henchman and Sidekick fall in love, that's why they work together...duh!

What else would you expect from a Hanna Barbara voice-over artists and the "Hippie" from Smokey And The Bandit Part III?

Isn't just the working title for a documentary on the Edwards-Cheney debate?

It can work if the right henchman and side kick are used...my suggestion...Robin vs DoubleTrouble from Carmen Sandiego
