Low Budget Movie Titles

If you live in the UK, then you know that the Conservative-Liberal Democrat Coalition (fondly know as the ConDem government), are on a mission to slash government spending like it's going out of fashion.

Earlier this week, they annouced the abolishment of the British Film Council, up by the last  Labour government to develop and promote the British film industry.

So, as there is now less money to fund British Movies, The Now Show asked listeners to come up with names for low budget movies. I thought they were quite good, and have decided to share.

Have a look at these, if you have any ideas for a few more, please add them in the comments section. Or just pick your favourite.

  3. Just caught up with 'The Now Show' (on Radio 4's website) and heard them. Also thinking up some 'Prequels to go along with 'Apocalypse Soon'. I've come up with 'Three Men and No Contraception', 101 Puppies and The Lion Prince. Struggling to think of more - must get some coffee...
