Misprint game

After listener John in Barcelona saw top sea-set thriller Dead Clam being advertised on a blackboard outside at a cinema in Fiji - he suggested a new game for Wittertainment listeners, making small typos in the title of a film to see what amusing alternatives would result. To kick things off, he suggested the raincoat brigade would be sorely disappointed by going to see Fluffer, only to see the Robin Williams comedy Flubber; while it would be difficult to generate internet buzz around either Snakes On A Plank or Snacks On A Plane. The suggestions flowed in:

  • Pilates Of The Caribbean
  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Pope
  • The Jazz Angler
  • Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Scone
  • Last Mango In Paris
  • Dial N For Nurder (a particular favourite of Simon Mayo's, this one)
  • Raging Hull
  • Transformbys
  • Top Gnu
  • Shakespeare In Hove
  • Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mint
  • She Wears A Yellow Gibbon
  • How The Vest Was Won
  • Sleeping With The Enema
  • The Fridge On The River Kwai
  • Where Beagles Dare
  • Angels With Dirty Faeces
  • It's A Wonderful Lift
  • Four Weddings And A Funnel
  • Lady Chatterley's Rover
  • Last Horse In The Loft
  • Notes On A Sandal
  • The House Whisperer
  • The Texas Chain Store Manager (sent many months later, included in an entry to the Movie mashups)

By the time someone suggested Die Hard With A Penguin, Simon felt some people were recycling old Graeme Garden classics from I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue.

Some 18 months later, the Misprint game would have a sequel of sorts in the Drop A Letter Game.
