Who Would Watch “Forest Grump”?

What Happens When You Add An “R” To The Title Of A Movie?

Occasionally Reddit will have some funny topics, among them this query:

“What movie changes its plot if you add a random “R” somewhere in its title?”

Looking through a couple of hundred comments, many wrote the same obvious re-wordings; Planet of the Rapes, The Bartman, Beauty and the Breast, Troy Story and so on.

The best ones I thought were-  R. Kelly’s Heroes, Paper Moron, and A Fish Called Rwanda.

I didn’t check all 8,000+ responses, so if anyone came up any of these first, then we think alike.

Because I enjoy classic movies, my list of films and their plot lines leans towards older films.

    “The Wild Brunch” was my fave. I can actually see the movie that would be made. Much like Monty Pythons “Salad Days”.
