Weird English Movie Names
its place as the home of the entertainment industry, including several of its historic studios.
1. Step into liquid
It was only released last week, but its made its mark instantly in the annals of bad movie title history. If you didnt see the poster, youd think this movie was about walking into a bathroom with piss on the floor.
2. Stop or my mom will shoot
Im sure that, on paper, a film pairing the monster talents of Sylvester Stallone and Estelle Getty seemed like a great idea, but with a title like this, what little chance it had to get more than 5 people to buy a ticket was shot all to hell. Im still waiting for the sequel, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bea Arthur. More clever, was the porn version, STOP! Or My Mom Will Suck Your Cock!
3. Bend it like beckham
The title of this film comes from the special way that UK Soccer star David Beckham could curve the ball when he kicked it. The films tagline is equally awful, Who wants to cook Aloo Gobi when you can bend a ball like Beckham? I cant wait for the baseball themed sequel, Bend Me Like Piazza.
4. K pax
I dont know if this is a movie, some kind of menstrual aid, or a Smooth Jazz radio station!
5. Half past dead
I laughed out loud when I first saw the commercial for this. Half Past Dead sounds like one of the phony McBain action movies theyd show on an episode of The Simpsons.
6. Breakin 2 electric boogaloo
Perhaps the worst titled sequel of all time, Electric Boogaloo has become the catch phrase of choice for anyone making fun of a Part 2. The original title, Breakin 2: The Quickening was scrapped, but later picked up as a part of the Highlander film series.
7. K 19 the widowmaker
For some reason, I keep thinking of Mentos: The Freshmaker when I see this horribly titled film mentioned. Movies with crazy letter/number combinations like K2, U1571, THX-1138, and the bestiality classic k9-694U always make me scratch my head in disgust.
While the gang at the Something Awful forums was helping me brainstorm ideas, Mr. Rich Lowtax Kyanka himself reminded me of this crappily titled masterpiece. The pun is just idiotic, though the lead actor, Bokeem Woodbine has a name thats nearly as ridiculous. You see, hes black and hes a male! This same film company is ready to release the new Woody Allen film, OLDJEW.
Theres not too many films with as incomprehensible of a title as this one, which features the tale of a caveman that falls in love with a teenage hottie. The 1962 film was also released as EEGAH! The Name Written In Blood! More like written in shit...AM I RIGHT?
10. Rat pfink a boo boo
All I can say, is What the Phuck? Ray Dennis Steckler is about as nice and approachable of a guy in film youll ever have the pleasure of meeting, but his skills at titling his movies are only slightly worse than his skill at making them! The film was actually supposed to be Rat Pfink and Boo Boo but the printer screwed up and wrote Rat Pfink A Boo Boo instead. Steckler didnt have enough cash to reprint them, so he just left it as is. Of course, the confusion of the films title persists to this day, as the picture of the DVD above shows, as they try to add the AND back in, but spell Pfink differently.
