Movies I’d skip based on the title alone

I saw “Morning Glory” this weekend and while it was a bit lacking in substance, it was a fun movie, and Rachel McAdams can really do no wrong in my book. Plus, Harrison Ford was actually acting again!

I was thinking about movie titles, and how important they are for moviegoers to show interest.  While there are a few exceptions, most movies need some type of catchy title with some type of symbolism or imagery behind them to attract attention.  For example, I might not have seen (and thoroughly enjoyed) “The Social Network” if it had been called “The Life and Trials of Mark Zuckerberg.”

This makes me think, in turn, of movie titles that could exist that would make me skip them on principle alone:

  • The Diary of a Gay New Zealand Sheepherder
  • Snooze
  • Robin Williams is Serious and Preachy
  • Schindler’s List
  • White Guy and Black Guy do Crazy Shit
  • Explosive Diarrhea in the 15th Century
  • Sarah Palin: America’s Pitbull
  • French Words for Boredom
  • Written and Directed by Tyler Perry
  • Talking Gerbils!
  • The Hobbit
  • Behind the Scenes at Dairy Queen
  • My Vaginal Warts
  • Trout 3D

  1. I’ve actually seen Schindler’s List. It took me years and years to see it.

    I’d watch Snooze. If they gave you nice beds to sleep on during it. Heck, they’d make a killing on that shit. Just show it at the Temperpedic mattress store.
