Just seen elsewhere and enjoyed.

Rules:
1) Choose a film/movie title.
2) Add --ing to the end.
3) write a synopsis or tagline for your new creation.

Example:
Schindler's Listing: The harrowing tale of a wealthy industrialist born under Nazi rule with one leg slightly shorter than the other.

Heating: With the best in the business working together, it's going to mean more than just a new boiler.

The Right Stuffing: Have they got what it takes to make Christmas dinner before the Russians?
