TWQ: Economy Films

For the TWQ (The Weekend Question), we look at what films would be titled if they had a lesser budget.

Can you list what some film titles would be if they had been made on a very tight budget? Name as many as you like.

My answers are:

One Dalmation
Harry Potter & The Philosopher's Pebble
Star War II: Attack Of The Clone.
The Fairly Ordinary Two (from The Magnificent Seven)
Happy Foot

Now it's over to you...


craziequeen said...

Wow, Jean-Luc...that's a tricky one......

'One Thing I Dislike About You'

'One Whole Yard'

'One and a Half Weeks'

'Crouching Kitten, Hidden Gecko'


Michele sent me to say hi, as I'm at home sick this weekend.


Bilbo said...

This is a clever twist on the classic comedy routine by Victor Borge called "Inflationary Language," in which words that contain a number are increased by one (e.g., "wonderful" becomes "twoderful"). That said, my choices are:


None Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Nine Hundred Ninety-Nine Thousand, Nine Hundred Ninety-Nine Years B.C.

The Puppy of the Baskervilles


Agnes of Idol

Great idea...I can't wait to see the other replies!


November Rain said...

I agree a tricky one

the Star wars 2 would that be a movie staring AOC?

reign of spark
squire kong

Barbara said...

Really Gone With the Wind

Highschool Song

gautami tripathy said...

One man and no baby..:D

I can't think of any more.

Michele sent me to think, I suppose!

Ernie said...

Well, "Transformers" would be "GoBots" and you'd also have "Sky Captain and The World of Yesterday".

Very brief encounter

Elizabeth said...

I just about fell off the couch laughing at "Bridget Jones' Post-It"!!

All I can think of is something to do with The Bourne Identity (Supremacy, Ultimatum)-The Bourne Text Message? Jon the Gladiator beat me to "One Day in the Valley". And forgive me if this is too politically incorrect, but couldn't the three hour long "Ghandi" have pretty much been shortened to "BANG!" ? I know, awful.

Instead of Star Trek - Galaxy Quest! oh, wait, that was an actual film :)
Two civil ceremonies and a memorial service
The kitten, the Wiccan, and the closet
The Elevenses club
Honey, I made the kids eat their greens
Being Matt Damon
Snakes on a Plain
