The Alternate Movie Title Game - Greatest Hits (Vol. 1)

This month, we're doing something a little different for the Alternate Movie Title Game. The "titles" below have been compiled from some of our previous games--so this is sort of a greatest hits edition! The rules are the same: We will provide an "alternate title" for a famous movie and ask you to name the film. Please answer no more than three questions per day so others can play. You may have an answer other than the intended one--just be able to defend it!

1. The Lying--But Likable--Magazine Columnist's Holiday in New England.

2. Hole of Vipers.

3. Incident at the Black Mesa Bar-B-Q.

4. Alien Nuptials.

5. Octopus in the House.

6. Battlin' Buckboard.

7.  A Snake Called Adolphe.

8. The Secret Agent That Got Nice and Toasty.

9. The Ugly Bug Ball.

10. Red Beard and the Boy Spy.

11, Queen of Neewollah.

12. Avalanche in Echo Pass!

13. I'm Beverly Boyer and I'm a Pig.

14. General Sternwood's Daughter.

15. Robur the Conqueror.


  1. 2 Ace in the Hole
    4 I Married a Monster from Outer Space
    15 Master of the World

    1. Ace in the Hole certainly works for Hole of Vipers, but there's another answer for that one. Great job on the other two!

  2. 7 We're no Angels.
    8 The spy who came in from the cold.
    14 The big sleep.

  3. Okay, I'll take an easy one:

    1. Christmas in Connecticut

  4. 9. Summer Magic
    11. Picnic
    12. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

  5. The first day isn't over and the only remaining questions are 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, and 13.

  6. 3. The Petrified Forest
    10. Kim
    13. The Thrill of It All

  7. Great job on all three, Karen! Kim is a pretty good Errol Flynn film that doesn't get played a lot.

  8. I will take a WAG (wild ass guess) on 6
    6 The War Wagon

  9. 5. Unless you're after "It Came From Beneath The Sea," I'll guess "The Kindred."

    1. Neither one of those. This movie features a small octopus in a small role.

    2. Well, that's a tough one then, Rick. So many films to choose from, I'll look forward to the answer.

  10. Still need to the title for #5!

  11. Could it be "The Man Who Came to Dinner"? Beelzabub

    1. Yes, very well done on a difficult alternate title! That concludes this month's game. Thanks to everyone who played.
