Would these movies have been as popular if they went with their original titles?

"virus?! Hoorah for macs"

Eh, no. There are viruses for Macs, and since you`ve got little to no protection you`re screwed if a site has one. Better run a scan just to be safe.

I got a virus warning too...I would recommend shutting down this link. My computer closes all windows that start installing a virus, it closed that one as soon as I clicked on it.

Avast is detecting a trojan on that site. You all might want to run your virusscans.

lol @ liionhart.

They weren`t bad, pretty woman was the only one that was much better.

The history behind number 6 is interesting.

My geeky senses are tingling. They forgot Revenge of the Jedi, Return of the Jedi`s original name before George rethought it and completely forgot that Jedi don`t act out in revenge.

Back to the Future probley wouldn`t of made it as far as it has if they went with that title.

And the Boy`s don`t cry one, that was just wrong.

Number six doesn`t even count, it was just a false title to take the heat off the production.

Tex X would have been an awesome name for the movie! I think I like it better than blazing saddles... Either way, great movie

Kind of along the same lines, but I remember reading that the producers of Rocky originally wanted other actors, including Robert De Niro and Arnold Schwarzenegger, before they settled on Stallone.

At least two of these were in no real danger of having rediculous names, and none of these were my favorite movies.
