A correct answer means that you have the honor of choosing a new synopsis.

If there's a particular name, that really gives away the correct answer, then you can sub it with asterisks, or maybe use "Character X", or some such thing.
If there's a name that you want to leave in, as a clue, then feel free to do that.

An example of what I means follows.

Close enough... you got both names mixed up in the title. It's actually from Any Which Way You Can (the sequel to Every Which Way But Loose)

Wow, that's an obscure one. I watched it so long ago I had to google for the title.

Anyway, it's Bugsy Malone (1976). It's a gangster movie with an all-child cast. Killings are executed with pies/cream to the face, if I recall correctly.
