Rewrite : If a movie is given a strange or even ridiculous title,would that make you more or less inclined to see it?

Asked by ucme (45991points) March 6th, 2010

What’s in a name right? Well when it comes to movies there are some pretty weird examples over the years.I won’t indulge myself, better to leave it to you & you’re recollections.The wackier the better.

Well, when I found out Head was a Monkees movie, I had to see it. And that Jack Nicholson was involved? Hell, yeah, I had to see it!
