As a tribute to the late, great Tony Curtis, let's Haiku this wonderful comedy

The Great Race

But remember to keep it clean - at least until the pie fight!

Abbreviated rules

The first line of a haiku poem has five syllables.
The second line has seven syllables.
The third, and final, line has five syllables.

The Movie Haiku Contest (MHC) is open to every member of the FWFR site. Give it a try if you never have--it's SO EASY!

To enter, all you have to do is think of a Haiku for the current movie, then post into the current thread. (Hint: read it out loud, ticking off the syllables with your fingers as you do so.)

Haikus may be risque, but not over the top, please, nor other exotic positions that would de-Classify this Classiest of contests.

Only one entry per person. However, you may edit your existing entry until 9pm Tuesday FWFR time.


If you have entered the MHC, then you have to vote. It's required. If you enter but do not vote, you get a whopping 3 point penalty, and bye-bye championship.

You do not have to enter an MHC to vote. Vote away. It'll be just like a lurker vote! And We Heart Lurkers.


For each round, you get to vote for your three favourite haikus. The voting is as follows:

3 pts fwfr a
2 pts fwfr b
1 pt fwfr c

You may vote only once.
You may not vote for yourself.

You vote by sending me your votes in a PM (Private Message) here. Vote deadline is Wed 29 Sept 9:00 AM fwfr time. Thanks for entering!

It's streaming on Netflix. I was half asleep for half of it.

I had not seen this film for so long that I rented it so I could do a haiku. Still haven't watched it yet (so busy!), now I missed out.

It's a long race, as you can tell. :-) I'll have something up soon.

Okay, so... this wasn't a great choice. (And silly me I forgot to enter myself.)

Take it away Sludge, and give us a better film to haiku.
