Instant bad movie

You know those annoying movie trailers with the voiceover that goes "In a time of turmoil... A poor shopkeeper faces his biggest fears... To have the woman he loves..." or some rubbish like that?

Somebody wrote a program to generate new ones with random plot elements. It's the Action Film Trailer Generator and it just gave me this gem:

On a wicked world of illusion, a bartender and a librarian attempt to participate in the greatest fighting tournament of history.

Via Making Light. There's more similar stuff in the same post. Oh, and in the comment thread someone pointed to the Trailer for Comedian which is just hilarious. (Hey, when your blog is brand new you have to steal from wherever you can!)
