The Beginning

A friend of mine and I had a conversation years ago, where we came up with a word-slash-title game. You combine two disparate movie titles into one, as if it was a natural thing all along. Thus, "The Bad Lieutenant's Wife" was born.

So, using the aforemention as an example: "The Bad Lieutenant" and "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover" would become "The Bad Lieutenant's Wife."


"Three Men And A Little Lady" + "The Lady In The Lake" = "Three Men And The Lady In The Lake."

This was before Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, I think, but I'm not entirely sure. So using a movie with Kevin Bacon, "The River Wild" and couple that with "A River Runs Through It." You get the "The River Runs Wild Through It."

Any movie with "Friday" in the title is too easy. "The Friday The 13th After Next," right?

You can mix eras up, by taking something older and combining it with something a little more recent. Thus, "Bad Santa At Black Rock." You can use a maximum of four titles, because things tend to be confusing after that.

If you can, before posting your submission, please type in keywords of your titles, click "Search Blog" to make sure that your combination is not redundant.

Surely, you the reader can do better, "Jude Law, The Obscure"...well, that's not really a movie title compliation, but you get the idea.
