4. Indiana Jones And The Ill-Advised Chronological Leap
The plot: It’s 1967, the summer of love.
Indy is an old - but surprisingly hip - lecturer on campus, having hung up his adventuring boots once and for all.
Or has he?
When all his students start embarking on increasingly deranged trips, he suspects a sinister strain of black hash that’s been flooding the dorms recently, and decides on one last mission...
...to the weed fields of Afghanistan, where a bewildering plot cooked up by evil Bin Laden Sr involves lots of being chased through caves.
The twist: Features quite heavily, alas, along with the Mashed Potato and the Funky Chicken.
Critics struggle with the franchise having taken a sudden Austin Powers-like direction.
The climax: Fields upon fields of burning cannabis, with a victorious Indy looking on impassively while hundreds of Taliban types roll around in fits of stoner giggles, despite their seething rage.
Indy returns to college one cool cat.
