Among the numerous talented writers in Hollywood, it’s amazing that blatant grammatical errors exist in the most apparent part of some films…the title. Personally I use Grammarly’s plagiarism checker because some grammatical errors can be easily overlooked and it’s a fact that computers solve everything(*wink*). It’s amazing that something as simple as a copy and paste into a grammar check utility could have resolved the errors in these titles.
Law-Abiding Citizen (correct)
Is the law abiding the citizen or is the citizen law-abiding?
The 40-Year-Old Virgin (correct)
Is this a film about forty virgin toddlers?
???? – The entire title is a disaster!
My Big, Fat Greek Wedding (correct)
Is this about a large wedding or a fat Greek person?
While some film titles may have intentional errors in grammar, it’s always fun to find these miniscule mistakes in well-known films. There are many movie mistakes out there whether they are grammatical in nature or completely obvious. I found it interesting to highlight a few of these films that blatantly missed these errors, despite their level of enjoyment. What are some titles that you can think of that fall victim to these grammatical crimes?
