Weird Movie Titles

by Vicki Nunn

I heard that Reece Witherspoon and Brad Pitt once signed up for a movie called “Important Artefacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry.” You can tell by its title that it was probably a dramatic and insightful exploration of human nature … or perhaps not.

And continuing on our theme of weird movie titles, following you will find a good assortment, though not an exhaustive list of real movie titles. While it may encourage you to rush out and buy them all, note please that a number of these are also included in the top 100 worst movies of all time. You have been warned:
