Alternate Movie Titles

Postby Grudunza » Wed 06 Jun, 2007 11:38 am

Just saw "The Lake House" with the Mrs. last night. I thought it was pretty good, as those kind of things go. But I was thinking afterwards that the movie could have been called "The Magic Mailbox", and how terrible of a title that would have been, kind of like when Principal Skinner suggested the title of "Billy and the Clonasaurus" for his Jurassic Park screenplay.

So what are some other alternate movie titles that would have likely ruined the chances of a movie ever getting produced in the first place?

(Then again, two of my favorite movies are The Shawshank Redemption and The Hudsucker Proxy, and those are some pretty awful titles, so who knows...)

The Matrix: "Futuristic Jesus"

More later.

Good ones. Yeah, tongue-in-cheek, for sure.

My husband calls all the Jane Austen movies, "Emma, of Mansfield Park, is Persuaded to question her Pride and Sensibilities during a visit to Northanger Abbey."

I find this only sometimes funny. :)
