The Director Who Films Your Life Test
Spielberg? Hitchcock? Ed Wood? Kevin Smith? WHO should be given the task to direct the film of your life story? Based on action/romance, comedy/drama, complex story, and financial budget requirements, this test will select the most appropriate of 24 selected film directors to commit to celluloid the story of your life.

Here: http://www.okcupid.com/tests/take?testid=11683900315001458180

Sofia Coppola http://is3.okcupid.com/users/110/596/11159777880591814326/mt1123096726.jpg
Your film will be 67% romantic, 33% comedy, 27% complex plot, and a $ 29 million budget.
Relatively inexperienced (The Virgin Suicides, Lost In Translation) as a director, but already highly respected and connected -- her dad, Francis, directed all The Godfather movies, Apocolypse Now. Also, at last word she's dating Quentin Tarantino, so I'm sure he'll have some input into the substance of your film. Sofia's good at making the romantic drama that is your life. Who didn't have at least a lump in the throat at the end of Lost In Translation? She's already won one Academy Award for her writing, now she'll be the first woman to receive one for directing -- YOUR FILM!

Roger Corman



Your film will be 50% romantic, 33% comedy, 40% complex plot, and a $ 33 million budget.
An action-complex tale about a complex character that is you. Corman was responsible for Jack Nicholson's film debut in 1963's The Terror. The actor who plays you will emote complexity like Jack ... maybe Christian Slater or Gwyneth Paltrow. Also, Roger filmed the original Little Shop of Horrors film -- which in the 1980s was the basis for a hit Broadway musical and another film. All his films were shot for mere thousands of dollars. Roger knows talent, and knows how to keep costs down with complex stories such as your life story. His versions of Edgar Allen Poe stories are considered classics (The Raven, The Pit and the Pendulum), and also directed Deathsport and Bloody Mama in the 1970s. Oh, yeah, man, this guy will make your film a cult classic!

Mine is an bigger production! :D

Woody Allen
Your film will be 71% romantic, 38% comedy, 27% complex plot, and a $ 29 million budget.
Be prepared to have your life story shot entirely in New York City -- though lately Woody's been loving shooting in London. Also, your music soundtrack is all jazz from before 1949 ( :eek: ).
Filmography: Annie Hall, Manhattan, Stardust Memories, Everyone Says I Love You, etc. Woody has released one film per year consistently for the past 35 years. For the past 15 years he's been trying to make films like his older, funnier ones, just like characters in his Stardust Memories film suggest throughout. Regardless of his personal life, his films are American classics.

may i just say.. i HATE jazz :bum:

Ingmar Bergman

Your film will be 70% romantic, 21% comedy, 44% complex plot, and a $ 39 million budget.
Your life will be portrayed on film as an intense psychological drama, likely with some actresses screaming at the camera (Persona), or maybe a pleasant chess game between the Grim Reaper and a Crusader (The Seventh Seal). This Swedish director's films are intensely scrutinzed and studied in colleges all over the world to this day. This means that most Americans still don't understand his films! Still alive, he released in the U.S. in 2005 his first film in 23 years (Saraband), and he can still take on one more project to make your film biography. If curious, start with his films Wild Strawberries and Smiles of a Summer Night.

Quentin Tarantino
Your film will be 49% romantic, 31% comedy, 39% complex plot, and a $ 48 million budget.
Wow! What a life you have led thus far! Action-packed, anti-social with probably dark humor. Quentin hasn't really made many films, but each successive one is a bigger and grander project ... and more violent. Karate CHOP! Your life story will probably star Michael Madsen, Uma Thurman, or some TV or movie star from the 1980s for which your film will be the comeback -- let's say Emilio Estevez. Maybe. Now that the QT is dating Sofia Coppola, maybe he'll get some tips about putting some lump-in-the-throat romantic moments in his films. Quentin's short directing resume includes Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and Kill Bill Vols. 1 & 2.

Steven Soderbergh


Your film will be 58% romantic, 36% comedy, 42% complex plot, and a $ 36 million budget.
Filmography: Sex Lies and Videotape, Traffic, Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, Erin Brockovich, and various other homemade independent films. He may just want to follow you around for a few months and construct a film out of that. At least you'll be surrounded by the best-looking people who will be cast as your friends. Then when he wins the Academy Award for your film, he won't have to make anymore "Ocean's" films.

I am surrounded by beautiful people! :lol:

David Lynch

Your film will be 48% romantic, 42% comedy, 51% complex plot, and a $ 38 million budget.

We apologize now. Future generations will view your life story by David Lynch and not know
what the hell just happened. A lot of events occur around you, but you seem to be involved
in all the wrong ways. Even you probably think your life is WEIRD. Why does that bald lady
insist on sitting on that basketball she carries inside that milk crate? Robert Blake will play your grandfather, and Kyle MacLachlan will play your dad.

**OMG, I luf Mullholland Drive!!**

You scored higher than 56% on complexity

You scored higher than 96% on budget

LMAO @...

Edward D. Wood, Jr.

Your film will be 47% romantic, 34% comedy, 30% complex plot, and a $ 35 million budget.
Ed Wood will get your film done waaaaay under budget, and will likely make it into a classic film of all time -- for all the wrong reasons. Let's face it, your life isn't terribly exciting to begin with, and it needs some camping up. His resume includes classics such as Plan Nine From Outer Space and Glen or Glenda? He's not afraid to tackle controversial topics, and may insist on portraying a transvestite in your film -- even if you've never seen a transvestite before. He was immortalized in the Academy Award winning Tim Burton film, Ed Wood -- go see it.

James L. Brooks

Your film will be 58% romantic, 40% comedy, 38% complex plot, and a $ 40 million budget.
Filmography: Terms of Endearment, Spanglish, As Good As It Gets, Broadcast News, etc. He also is responsible for bringing The Simpsons to TV (from when he produced The Tracy Ullman Show). It's likely that the audience will cry if Jimmy makes your film. In fact, the Simpsons writing team gave the name "Jimmies" to those sweet, tender, loving moments that end some Simpsons episodes. Also, that's he who says, "How about some sponge cake? With a brandy glaze! Muwahaha!"
