Siskel and Ebert's quote on Rob's example is very...cleverly placed.

I think every movie should be renamed like that. Even if he isn't in the film. Especially if he isn't in the film.

Schindler's List and Bruce Willis

Clerks and Bruce Willis

84 Charing Cross Road and Bruce Willis

Bob and Ted and Carol and Alice and Bruce Willis

I love how they took the classic artwork and tried to make a complete face for Pacino. Whose lips are those? (Or is he the mouthless sister from Twilight Zone: The Movie, merely borrowing some puckers from Photoshop?)

Bernie Mac looks so moved by this film, he is about to break into tears.

Crying or Very sad
