The Quirky, Corny, Groan-Inducing Double Feature Game

Post by srowley75 »

I played this in another film group and, given the number of true movie nerds (like myself) among us, I thought it might be fun to try here.

You simply create a humorous-sounding double feature by pairing two movies that, simply by virtue of their titles, seem well-paired or else seem ironically paired. Some examples:

Under the Volcano (1984)
and
The Hot Rock (1972)

What Do You Say to a Naked Lady? (1970)
and
Cover Up (1991)

Can't Stop the Music (1981)
and
Shoot the Piano Player (1962)

I Know Where I'm Going! (1945)
and
Which Way is Up? (1977)

Where Were You When the Lights Went Out? (1968)
and
The Dark Corner (1946)

The Horn Blows at Midnight (1945)
and
Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

How to Stuff a Wild Bikini (1965)
and
Super Size Me (2004)

When Worlds Collide (1951)
and
Boom! (1968)

To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
and
Bye Bye Birdie (1963)

Anyone else wanna give it a try? Anyone? :roll:

Thanks for your contributions, ChiO and Mel!

Don't think you have to limit it yourself only to double features - marathons are also welcome!
