Can You Guess the Generic Movie Title Based on the Plot?

By Julia Emmanuele, Hollywood Staff

Picking a title for a movie is hard. That one small phrase needs to be broad enough to encapsulate everything that the movie deals with but narrow enough to let the audience know what it's about, while also being catchy enough to stick in people's heads, but not so specific that it dissuades people from coming to see it. And on top of all of that, it needs to look good on a movie poster. So when it came time for the producer of Tom Cruise's latest film to name their blockbuster, they must have cracked under the pressure, and settled on the completely generic Edge of Tomorrow.

As a title, Edge of Tomorrow doesn't reveal anything about the movie. It doesn't clarify whether it's an action film or a coming-of-age story, it doesn't hint at the alien apocalypse at the center of the story, it isn't catchy enough to stay with you long after you watch the trailer, and it doesn't even look that great on billboards. Without Cruise, it would be almost impossible to identify Edge of Tomorrow... it could be any film, about any topic. Don't believe us? We've rounded up the plots of nine films with the most boring, uninspired titles in Hollywood. Can you pick match the film to its incredibly generic name?
