Oh. My. God. A View-Master movie? Really?

Viewmaster You thought that Baywatch plan was bad? Get ready for this: The Hollywood Reporter says that there are plans to make a movie based on the View-Master. That's right, the old Fisher-Price toy with those wheels of slides that you clicked on and saw by staring at a light. We officially are nauseous.

THR says DreamWorks is working on a deal to get movie rights from Mattel (the owner of Fisher-Price) and is asking screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to work "some Transformers-style magic" on the concept. Meaning, loud and bad?

The Juice* has had enough of this crap. We're now running a new contest for movie concepts that we can send to Hollywood. Send your best and brightest ideas via Twitter to @tbtjuice and let us know what would make a better flick than this. We'll even start: How about a movie in which people all turn off their TVs and quit going to the movies, learn to not fear their neighbors anymore and rebuild the fabric of society? Eh, no one will go see that.
