Haha, yeah. I wonder if they ever made an "adult" version of that film and if so, did they have to alter the title at all?

Some new ones to add to the list:

DEAD MAN DOWN. Seriously, who came up with this? I think you'd be hard pressed to find a dead man who wasn't down. Unless his movie is about a zombie who is severely depressed, this is one of the stupidest f***ing titles I've ever heard.

TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D. And this one is just lazy as hell. I've been sick of the 3D trend for years now but I can accept that Hollywood is going to milk it for as long as they can. But seriously, you couldn't come up with a better title than this? A sequel is already in the works... what will they call that? Texas Chainsaw 4D, Now with Smellovision?

The Dark Knight Rises would've been better to just call it Batman Ends. That way it has a symmetry to the series.

The new Jason Statham movie called simply "Parker", that's it? If I hadn't seen the trailer I wouldn't know what it's about.

It's about a guy who parks cars!

Seriously though, it's a Jason Statham movie. Even if you hadn't seen the preview, all you have to hear is his name and you'll know it's a movie where he kills a bunch of bad guys because they doublecrossed him somehow.

They should just call all his movies Statham 1, 2, 3, etc.

Some stupid $#%^ for names, makes one wonder why they keep doing that, aside from laziness and being unimaginative

Not long enough! I don't know what it is and every detail of its creation! MORE!

I don't acknowledge Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire as part of the title. It's called Precious, the rest is citation, as far as I'm concerned.

Now now, you never know. If they had just called it Precious, people might have thought it was some sort of prequel to The Lord of the Rings. And if they had kept the name Push, then people might have thought it has something to do with superhumans with telekinetic powers.

Oh, I think Olympus Has Fallen is a silly name. I mean, if it was a movie about the Greek gods going to war, that could be really cool. But wasting a title like that on an Air Force One-meets-Die Hard-style action movie is lame, IMO.

I always thought the film Brazil would have been seen by much more people had it a more informative title like "Dark Future London" or something (not as lame as that obviously, but something as cool as Blade Runner). I thought there must be a lot of sci fi or art film fans who never watched the movie as they just saw the title and thought of a nature documentary. It seems like it was chosen to keep viewers away who weren't already "in the know" about it being a good sci fi film and who it was made by, etc.

First one that comes to mind is Thor. Is it a documentary about Norse gods? Is it a more scandinavian themed Clash of the Titans? Shouldve been Thor: Journey into Mystery or at least The Mighty Thor.

The Dark Knight Rises also leaves something to be desired.

There are plenty of worse titles, but these ones are titles for good movies. I expected better. :P

People used to give me crap about it, but I also hate The Dark Knight Rises as a title. To me, it seems like WB was like "holy crap! Everyone loved The Dark Knight and it made so much money! You have to include The Dark Knight in the title of the next one to make sure people know it's a sequel! People will be too dumb to figure it out otherwise!"

I agree and honestly think this is what happened.

Yeah, I have to kind of agree with you there. On it's own, I think it's an okay title, but the reasoning behind it is just stupid. Did they REALLY think people wouldn't realize it was Batman movie from the trailers?

I hate titles like -

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Odd Life of Timothy Green
Meet Joe Black
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (Come on, seriously?)

EDIT: I picked those off the top of my head, but just then realised Brad Pitt is in most of them... I don't know why.
