Flynet

Monster vs. Aliens: When a space capsule crash lands onto Susan Reynold’s car she’s doused by its alien liquid contents, Quantonium which turn her into a 48 foot 11 inch giant. Her wedding thwarted, she’s captured by the military and sent to a secret government facility, where she meets fellow monsters Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D., the gelatinous BOB, The Missing Link, and Insectosaurus. Susan, aka Ginormica, is drafted to lead this motley crew of reluctant heroes to save the earth from the evil alien Gallaxhar, who’s hell bent on retrieving his liquid Quantonium.

Four Christmases: A young married couple, each of them children of divorced parents, brace themselves in order to attend four different Christmas Day family celebrations.

Nailed: A small-town receptionist has a nail accidentally shot into her head by a clumsy workman, eliciting wild sexual urges. The uninsured woman goes on a crusade to Washington to fight for the rights of the bizarrely injured. She meets an immoral congressman who takes advantage of her sex drive and capitalizes on her crusade.
