Weird film adaptations

It's strange enough to hear that "What to Expect When You're Expecting" is being adapted to film as a romantic comedy.

But I was really amazed to see a press release announcing that DreamWorks is in negotiations to buy the film rights to View-Master. Yes, that View-Master, the stereoscopic toy. It's supposed to be a "Goonies"-style film from the writers of the new "Transformers" movies. And the press release wasn't dated to April 1.

I can even imagine a film based on "Candyland" or "Battleship". But aren't movies supposed to have conflicts, plots, or at least characters?
