A former sitcom actor is called upon for a secret operation because he is the highest-ranking Qi Gong practitioner who is also a US citizen. He is sent on a mission to investigate a group within a chinese organized crime syndicate that use qi redirection for combat -- with the national security implication that they may have ties to chinese spy agencies. However, being a c-list celebrity recognizable to many people (even thirty years after the show went off the air) comes with its own complications.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

A heist flick with a twist: two teams are competing with each other to pull off the same heist, and each member on one team has a "mirror" version on the other team played by another actor who has been typecast as the same very specific role. (For instance, if one team has Vin Diesel, the other has Dwayne Johnson; if one team has Denzel Washington, the other has Will Smith.) Their lines are almost identical. They never meet.

"Brave Chicken Warriors": Colonel Sanders and General Tso wage war against each other

EDIT:
Another idea(s):

Something similar to "The Final Destination", except instead of having narrowly avoided a plane crash, the protagonist is instead the world's oldest woman, and that's why Death is after them.

*Horror comedy about a communist vampire who can enter any building he wants to because he doesn't believe in property.

*Extremely minor rewrite of Animal Farm to make it about the transition from communism to putin instead of from the czars to communism (and really it almost works as that now)

*Parody of "Schoolhouse Rock" featuring songs about inaccurate and controversial facts such as "Bush did 9/11" "lizardmen run the country" and "you can't get pregnant on your period"

*Comedy skit: Inspector Gadget is racist/corrupt

*Comedy skit: Kool-Aid Man leads a cult

A My Dinner With Andre style story (i.e., two people talking for three hours) that takes place entirely in a foxhole during WWI, between a private who considers himself a poet and is guilty about having written pro-war material before enlisting and a corporal who has anti-intellectual sentiments and is concerned about the continued loyalty of his girlfriend back home. The two begin at odds, having to make nice because they are trapped together, but they eventually grow to respect each other. At the end of the film, just as they are about to become friends, a bunker-buster hits them and kills them -- making all of their character development meaningless.

A story whose villain is a mashup of Donald Trump and The Joker, and whose origin involves being hideously deformed after falling into a vat at a "Cheetos" factory.

EDIT:
Another idea:

A story where two clans of feuding hillbillies are a metaphor for israel and palestine

EDIT:
another idea:

Comedy skit- some people are discussing the ontology of the alphabet and in particular where the letter "a" gets it's "a-ness" (which of course sounds like "anus")

An alien invasion succeeds because, even though the UFOs are completely visible, nobody is willing to talk about them because everyone believes themselves to be going crazy.

Two ideas:
*a story whose villain is a weeaboo obsessed specifically with WW2 era Japan

Weeaboos cant be obsessed with WWII era japan because Japan only developed cutesie culture in the wake of being completely emasculated (I use that term not in any derogatory way, really) by US occupation in the wake of nuclear annihilation.

Weeaboos aren't necessarily focused on moe. (I disagree that moe developed post-disarmament as well; it clearly has precedent in pre-Meiji literature.) A westerner who appropriates the lifestyle of a mil-otaku is just as much a weeaboo as one who appropriates the lifestyle of a fujoushi, and mil-otaku (particularly those with an obsession with second world war era weaponry) are a pretty big force in the domain of even other japanese pop-media, hence why half the female characters in any given show are named after battle ships and why some of the best selling harem trash shows are about anthropomorphic fighter planes. (This even gets addressed directly with GATE, an awful yet extremely popular show about the JSSDF invading a medieval fantasy world with a squadron composed entirely of hikikomori NEETs -- and a show that is funded in part by the lobbying group currently attempting to petition the diet to amend the constitution to drop article five and bring Japanese military power back to imperial levels.)

The train-going-through-a-tunnel-as-a-metaphor-for-sex trope expanded into an entire documentary about railroads that is really a documentary about sex told through allegory

EDIT
Another idea:

they say children are a gift from god so how about a comedy skit about god giving people various badly thought out and/or passive-aggressive gifts

EDIT:
Another idea:
A superhero cartoon about a guy who works at a stadium concession stand wih two anthropomorphic toon animals until a bizarre stadium food accident grants them stadium food related powers turning them into the stadium food related super heroes Hot Dog, Taco Cat, and the hoagie themed Sub Human

A girl wears dark glasses because she believes that her pupils transform their shapes into words representing her true feelings. We never discover whether or not this belief is true.

A young man encounters logistical problems related to the fact that, everywhere he goes, large numbers of crows congregate. In his childhood he didn't realize the scope of the problem because, attached to a military family, he rarely stayed in the same town for more than a year. However, after getting his own apartment and a job, he found that many structures in his home town cannot handle the weight of thousands of crows perching on them. The stench of crow corpses (caused by so many crows perching upon other crows that they are crushed) is also a problem. The crows, despite their interest, maintain a respectful distance from him, but coworkers and friends are not safe from building collapses caused by abnormal crow congregations, and nearby ecosystems are disrupted as all local crows migrate to a small area, ceasing to eat (or do much of anything, other than watch).

A forensic pathologist with a fraudulent degree owes her success to her telepathic connection with maggots -- a skill she is reluctant to use because it fills her with a short-term craving for decaying meat that grows more intense each time she connects with them. When she is assigned to performing the lab work for the investigation of a brutal and very active serial killer, an internal conflict comes to the fore as her desire for career advancement vies against her fear of eating the evidence, and she must begin to confide in a coworker to help keep her urges in check.
