James Franco and Jimmy Fallon play guess the movie… and they’re not very good at it

The Interview actor and host of The Tonight Show have five seconds to describe movies to each other. The results are hilarious...


James Franco likes to show off how many things he can do: act, take selfies, pen short stories, spoof a Kimye music video, create an art exhibit, direct a film adaptation of William Faulkner literature… the list goes on. But it turns out there’s something he’s not so good at: guessing movie titles.


The other night, Franco visited The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, where they played a game titled Five-Second Summaries. Each took turns giving plot summaries in under five seconds while the other guessed the movie title. And despite their occupations in the entertainment biz, they’re actually pretty bad.

If there’s anything we learned, it’s that Franco has never seen The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and Fallon thinks Forrest Gump and Cast Away are the same films.

Highlight of the game: Fallon briefly impersonating James Franco in Pineapple Express. See both videos below…
