What's the worst movie TITLE ever?
« on: December 22, 2006, 12:15:12 PM »
This thread was inspired by an old TV movie-of-the-week I just came across, a drippy Lifetime-style movie with the title Before Women Had Wings. Sounds like a story about feminism, right? Actually, it has not one thing to do with feminism (unless you count a star turn by Oprah playing -- don't die of shock, now -- a savior figure); it's just the story of an abusive family. The kind of thing that still exists even now that women do have wings.

Except that women don't actually have wings.

So that's my nominee.  :D Other suggestions for worst movie title?

I think the King of all bad movie titles, one that continues to inspire producers to new levels of inanity (if that's even a word), is still "Dude, Where's My Car?"

A runner up would probably be "Love, Actually".

"Dude, Where's My Car?" was about a guy looking for his car. Granted, a buddy was along for the ride and the movie kinda sucked... but the title was about spot on as you could get for that particular film. You can damn the movie, but the title pretty much worked.

I thought of exactly that as well. But Ya-Ya is even worse. Though, the premise of traveling pants sounds worse to me. The only thing that would get me to watch that flick is the young sexy babes, but that might get me thrown in prison!   ;)

Um...hello?  When it comes to bad movie titles, there is absolutely NO CONTEST.  The Worst Title, um...title...has to go to Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Oh, how about Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever? For some reason your suggestion reminded me of that one. That's almost -- not quite, but almost -- worse than my original nominee.

Seriously?!?

Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo belongs in the "best" thread, not here. It succeeds on every possible level. 1) The movie features a heavy dose of breakdancing, so you got your "Breakin'. 2) It's a sequel, so you got your "2". 3) It starred Michael 'Boogaloo Shrimp' Chambers, so you got your "Boogaloo". 4)  Two hundred years down the road, somebody will win Final Jeopardy with "What is "Breakin 2:Electric Boogaloo?" in the catorgy of 'Breakdancing Movies involving Evil Land Developers'.

Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever - nice call, that will be hard to top.
