Kevin Smiths new Film A Couple of Dicks gets a title change

by Joey Paur

People sure do like to give Kevin Smith a hard time on his movies and movie titles. His 'Zack and Miri Make a Porno' was banned in a utah theater chain because of the title, and he was given such a hard time with his movie poster designs that it ended up being a couple of stick figures which was brilliant.

Yesterday it was announced that Kevin Smith would be directing his first studio film from a script he did not write. The movie WAS called 'A Couple of Dicks' and was written by Robb and Mark Cullen. The story is about "two veteran LAPD detectives attempt to track down a stolen, mint-condition, 1952 baseball card." It may not sound that interesting but the film stars Tracy Morgan and Bruce Willis. The script was also on the 2008 Blacklist which is a Hollywood insider list of best unproduced screenplays. So there is a chance it could actually be a pretty entertaining film.

Now here is the ridiculous part about the whole thing. It looks Warner Bros. has decided to change the tile of the film from 'A Couple of Dicks' to 'A Couple of Cops'? What the hell!? Is that not one of the most boring and unimaginative titles you have heard? The first title isn't really that great either but at least it has a little punch to it, a little flare. The way Hollywood runs things never ceases to amaze me. They sure do keep things interesting, but they like to pick on Kevin Smith.
