Alarmingly Appropriate Move Titles

In one of my moments of extreme boredom, I was browsing Netflix. I was looking at movies that I’d recently returned ands they have that whole thing where it’s like “If you liked this movie, you may like…” Now I will admit in a moment of weakness I had orered the remake of Prom Night on Netflix. I figured “eh, Brittany Snow’s cool, what have I got to lose?” The answer is clearly an hour and a half of my life and what self respect remained. Regardless, I was looking at what movies they thought I might like and I came across a little gem called Single White Female 2. Haven’t heard of it? Surprise, surprise. It’s one of those sequels to a successful movie like 10 or 15 years after the fact. Trying to capitalize on the success of Single White Female may have sounded like a genius idea to the folks at Third Street Pictures, but something seems to be lacking. Well, that’s what I used to think until I saw the full title of the film. Single White Female 2: The Psycho. Now I don’t know if you’ve ever seen the first Single White Female and I hate to ruin it, but the whole premise is that the bitch is psycho. We’re talkin’ about ape shit insane type psycho so one can’t help but wonder, who is the addition of a number and a little clarification preceded by a semi-colon gonna get a new audience to watch the movie. However, the fact can’t be ignored that movie studios know what they’re doing. There’s gotta be a market for dumb ass movies that are given dumb ass titles that spell out the film for you. So this is a post for all lovers of the Single White Female 2’s of the World… take up knitting or at least something mildly productive.
