Writing Wrong: Movie Titles with Bad Grammar, From TIME.com


 Staying on the subject of titles, here’s a list recently compiled by TIME.com of film titles with grammatical errors. While they may not have stopped the films from becoming successes, we’re sure it wouldn’t have hurt to at least make sure the titles were grammatically correct.
 From TIME.com:
 “For all the considerable resources that go into marketing Hollywood movies, it would seem that scant attention is paid to checking the grammar and punctuation of film titles. Case in point, the new STAR TREK, whose title omits a punctuation mark that not-so-subtly changes the meaning of the words. TIME copy chief Danial Adkison and copy editor Douglas Watson offer their professional judgment on some other suspect movie titles.”
