Movie Mash-Up Contest!

Ok, I was jealous of everyone else's contests, and I wanted to make a mini-contest of my own. Actually, the Rally Monkey inspired me.

Today, the Rally Monkey was bored and sitting on the couch creating movie mash-up titles. What's a movie mash-up, you ask? It's when two or more movie titles combine to make another (ridiculous) movie title. The Rally Monkey got the idea back in 1996, when he saw a movie marquis that didn't have enough space left between titles. It said, Twelve Monkeys Waiting to Exhale. Which kind of leaves you with a funny picture in your head.

So, we're going to have a mini movie mash-up contest! By midnight of Monday, October 5, EST, leave in the comments of this post your awesome movie mash-up. The Rally Monkey will judge. The prize is the Rally Monkey and I will hand-bake and -mail you a batch of brownies (probably from a box, though, to be honest). Or if you don't want brownies of questionable provenance, you could also choose to receive a book randomly selected from my burgeoning library.

Here are some of the Rally Monkey's examples to inspire you (he literally spent all night coming up with these):

Dirty Dances with Wolves

Charlie's Angels in the Outfield


Million Dollar Baby Momma

Night of the Living Dead Poets' Society

No Country for Old Men in Tights

While You Were Sleeping with the Enemy of the State (three in one!)

and my personal favorite,

Dude, Where's My Gran Torino?

Since my contest only lasts two days, this will be perfect for warming you up for the better contests I mentioned yesterday!

Now watch out Hollywood!

Peter Pan and the War Wagon


It was actually a double feature at the 112th Street Drive Inn back in 1968 or so. I was about 6 at the time, so when reading it, the titles to the movies just kind of ran together. My brother and I were oblivious to the fact that it was actually two movies and started complaining that we never got to see any kid shows. Boy did we feel dumb once Peter Pan started.
