M. Night Shyamalan's claim to fame.
A rapid switch of these may prove catastrophic.
You can do this at home, at the gym, and now even on a bus.
The Notebook, Clueless, and Twilight are some examples of this.
I consist of each of these things and at my core one more

What am I?

Hint:

If I were to remove two lines from the first four lines the answer would be the same but different


Riddle changes since first posting:

  • Added the word rapid to the second line
  • Changed "all" to "each of" in the last line

Slightly not-serious guess:

You are:

Bop It! More specifically, the Bop It Extreme version

M. Night Shyamalan's claim to fame.

M. Night Shyamalan's is famous for movies which have big twists

A rapid switch of these may prove catastrophic.

This refers to the poles switching. Poles --> Pull

You can do this at home, at the gym, and now even on a bus.

You can do a spin class at the gym, at home and now even on a bus!

The Notebook, Clueless, and Twilight are some examples of this.

These are examples of movies that would be described as chick flicks

I consist of all these things and at my core one more

Twist, Spin, Flick, Switch are all possibilities on a Bop It Extreme device as well as the big Bop It button in the middle/core

Regarding the hint

If you remove the lines about the flick and the spin, you end up with the original Bop It, which just had twist, pull and bop

  • $\begingroup$ Yup! You got it. Though the answer is slightly more specific, your explanation is spot on for each clue minus the one you missed $\endgroup$ – Gordon Allocman Apr 15 '16 at 14:33
  • $\begingroup$ Oh wow, that was the first thing that popped into my head just from the 2 movie clues, didn't think it'd actually be correct. Is the 'more specific' answer a certain variety? Hence the hint of removing 2 lines and still being slightly same answer? $\endgroup$ – SlashmanX Apr 15 '16 at 14:37
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah it is a certain variety which is what the hint is hinting at $\endgroup$ – Gordon Allocman Apr 15 '16 at 14:38
  • $\begingroup$ Updated my answer $\endgroup$ – SlashmanX Apr 15 '16 at 14:45
  • $\begingroup$ Ah ok, I thought it was a 'pull' handle, but there were a few sources saying the green was a toggle switch which fit easier. $\endgroup$ – SlashmanX Apr 15 '16 at 14:49

You might be:

Motion

M. Night Shyamalan's claim to fame.

Motion Pictures

A rapid switch of these may prove catastrophic.

Rapid change in movement/ motion may cause accidents/ muscle cramps

You can do this at home, at the gym, and now even on a bus.

Well! You can move at you home, the gym and even on the bus.

The Notebook, Clueless, and Twilight are some examples of this.

All three are motion pictures.

I consist of all these things and at my core one more

I am not sure about this one.

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, this is not the correct answer. You are somewhat on the right track for lines 1 and 4 though. I'm going to make a slight change to line 5 which shouldn't effect your answer but should make the riddle a bit clearer, and also add a hint $\endgroup$ – Gordon Allocman Apr 15 '16 at 12:41
