Fall movies' misleading titles
Baffled by this fall’s bounty of vaguely generic movie titles, we boldly suggest some plot tweaks of our own.
What it is: Tense Samuel L. Jackson drama about interracial marriage.
What it should be: Charming Emma Thompson period romance about crumpets and teatime.
THE FAMILY THAT PREYS
What it is: Tyler Perry movie starring Alfre Woodard and Kathy Bates as friendly matriarchs.
What it should be: Wes Craven movie starring Robert Englund and Lance Henriksen as bloodsucking vampire brothers.
BODY OF LIES
What it is: CIA thriller with Leonardo DiCaprio as terrorist-tracking operative Roger Ferris.
What it should be: Cinemax-ready thriller with Jenna Jameson as heavily tattooed serial killer Cassie Fandango.
ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO
What it is: Zack (Seth Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) make a pornographic movie.
What it should be: Actually, thinking about it, in this case the title is pretty darned accurate.
