New York Magazine Competition No. 28: Movies With Dessert


Welcome back to the New York Magazine Competition. On alternate Mondays, we lay out a challenge and offer a sample responses. Enter in the comments section, or on Twitter with the hashtag we've provided, and the editors will select a winner. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year's subscription to New York in print or a two-year subscription to the iPad edition (winner's choice). Full rules are here.

COMPETITION NO. 28: MOVIES WITH DESSERT. Please offer a title that might make filmgoers want a treat. For example:

    Guardians of the Gingerbread
    Hot Tub Vending Machine
    Requiem for Ice Cream
    The Dark Knight Reese’s   

Enter on Twitter with the hashtag #moviewithdessert, or in the comments thread below, by August 20.
