The 100 Worst Movie Titles Ever

There are some great movie titles in the annals of film history: “Casablanca,” “Citizen Kane,” “Inglourious Basterds” … “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.” But they can’t all be winners. For every “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” there’s a “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo.” And for every “Skyfall,” there’s a “Quantum of Solace.”

What in God’s name is a quantum of solace???

Ignoring the deliberately bad titles of B-movies — who are we to judge the glorious absurdity of “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-up Zombies” — we’ve compiled a list of 100 heinous-title offenders, in descending order of horribleness.
