When his bride loses her memory of him a week before the wedding, an unromantic guy's guy must restore it by recreating their courtship’s most romantic moments or face losing the love of his life.
What sort of amnesia?
* Anterograde amnesia
* Retrograde amnesia
* Post-traumatic amnesia
* Dissociative amnesia
* Lacunar amnesia
Controlling when someone is getting his/her memory back is stuff for movies, it’s not reality. You can’t predict how long it takes for someone to get his/her memory back, even if you help faith a bit..
But I would say to this guy’s guy: Good luck!!
this is a pretty good logline!
There’s irony (a guy’s guy who need to repeat his romantic moments),
an inciting event (the amnesia), a clear goal (to marry the girl).
There’s a plan too: recreate their romantic moments- will it work? or not? that’s interesting.
I recommend to find a better title whit some irony in it.
I don’t have problems with the realism or unrealism of the amnesia- it’s a comedy right?
Have you seen the horrible movie where Harrison Ford loose his memory and his wife become a stranger to him? Try to avoid the same errors 🙂
You can improve your logline with a little rewriting to have a better writing style, making it even shorter and funnier. I would avoid ‘unromantic’ for 2 reasons: 1st, it’s implicit in “guy’s guy”, 2nd, you say he had romantic moments so it’s a bit confusing. I suggest to change “face loosing” with just “loosing”.
Good point made by DPG he needs to start over again only the clock is ticking this time round.
After his bride loses her memory a week before their wedding, a guy’s guy must successfully propose again by recreating their courtship’s most romantic moments before the ceremony.
I would try to introduce an antagonist such as a crazy ex boyfriend the bride had who tries to take advantage of her memory lose.
Hope this helps.
