Friday List: Movie Title Mashups

By Michael Corones

Timeless. (Jonathan Mannion -- Govinda Gallery)

As improbable as it may sound, I want to be an amalgamation of William Powell and Jay-Z when I grow up. (Yes, I realize I'm 34 and time is running out.)

So I was sipping a PBR down at Solly's Tavern, sitting next to Mac the Movie Man (Mac watches movies on a portable DVD player; this night it was "The Magnificent Seven") and becoming increasingly stressed about how to describe my dream of channeling my heroes to Liz's gentle readers. (Seriously, Powell and Jay-Z could have a smooth-off. Dapper duds, rapier wit and magnums of Dom Perignon at two paces. Like that scene from "Zoolander" except better.) Suddenly, Mac exclaimed, "What if they crossed 'The Magnificent Seven' with 'Ocean's 11'?" And there it was: Crisis averted! Topic discovered! Friday List found: Movie Title Mashups.

He went through all of that just to get to a Friday list?!?

Yes. Yes I did. So without further ado, your top ten movie title mashups:

  1. "The Magnificent Seven" + "Ocean's 11" = "The Magnificent 7-11"

    Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K. A band of beneficent cowboys endeavor to save a convenience store from a gaggle of glib yuppies.

  2. "The Natural" + "Natural Born Killers" = "The Natural Born Killers"

    A Nebraska farm boy fashions a baseball bat from a lightning-felled tree and marauds around New Mexico killing innocents to a catchy Nine-Inch-Nails-meets-Randy-Newman soundtrack.

  3. "All the President's Men" + "Men in Black" = "All the President's Men in Black"

    Unsuspected Martians infiltrate The Washington Post and concoct an elaborate ruse to have Gerald Ford installed as president.

  4. "Les Filles de La Rochelle" (French, 1962) + "La Rochelle" (French, 1912) = "Les Filles de La Rochelle Rochelle"

    Four French maidens' strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk.

  5. "Trading Places" + "Places in the Heart" = "Trading Places in the Heart"

    A blue blood and a bum concoct an elaborate ruse to get rich as a depression-era widow.

  6. "The Remains of the Day" + "Days of Thunder" = "The Remains of the Days of Thunder"

    A disillusioned NASCAR driver moves from Bristol, Tenn. to Bristol, England to pursue his passion for servitude.

  7. "Chariots of Fire" + "Fire Down Below" = "Chariots of Fire Down Below"

    A disillusioned EPA agent moves from Manchester, Ky. to Manchester, England to pursue his passion for steeplechase.

  8. "Hard to Kill" + "To Kill a Mockingbird" = "Hard to Kill a Mockingbird"

    A washed-up action star awakes from a coma to discover her father is a depression-era lawyer.

  9. "The Super" + "Super Troopers" = "The Supertroopers"

    A New York City slumlord is sentenced to six months as a drug-addled, syrup-swilling Vermont state trooper. Hijinks ensue.

  10. "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" + "Under the Tuscan Sun" = "20,000 Leagues Under the Tuscan Sun"

    A disillusioned submarine captain moves to Italy to pursue his passion for prosciutto.

Now it's your turn: Share your favorite movie title mashups in the comments section.

When not guest Celebritologizing, Michael Corones is an Opinions producer for In his mind he is writing a book about William Powell and Jay-Z titled "The Thin Man, Living the Phat Life." Sadly, yet predictably, he hasn't gotten any further than a title.

We play this game at work, but we have some rules to make it not so easy.

1. The last word of the first title and the first word of the second title must be the same. "The Last Temptation of Jesus Christ Superstar" does NOT work, for example, nor does "A Few Goodfellas." "A Few Good Men in Black," though, is a winner.

2. You can drop articles ("A, An, The") when they appear as the first word, but nothing else.

3. Just mentioning two titles in once sentence "Babe at Babette's Feast?") does not even come close.

Carry on.

If you are William Powell- I'm proposing. I have had a crush on him since I first saw the Thin Man series about 15 years ago.
