Director and writer Kevin Smith’s already had some problems with his film titles. 2008’s Zach and Miri Make a Porno was just called Zach and Miri in many television ads, and it looks like his new flick, A Couple of Dicks, is having similar troubles.
According to /Film, at his Comic-Con panel Smith discussed the ways Warner Bros. is dealing with the problem. When asked, TBS and Fox said they would run the ads all day, but ABC, NBC, and CBS said that they wouldn’t run the ads until after 9:00pm.
“We’re all still paying for Janet Jackson’s tit,” Smith joked. “That boob haunts me.”
Warner Brothers already tried changing the film’s name to the far less funny or interesting A Couple of Cops. Whatever the title, I’m really excited for this movie, as it is the first flick Smith has directed but not written. I hope that ABC, NBC, and CBS lighten up a bit. A Couple of Dicks (or whatever it ends up being called) hits theaters on February 26, 2010.
