As a general rule, I avoid any movie with the word "ass" in the title. Having just read that Kick-Ass 2 has been somewhat disappointing at the box-office are there any scores with this word in the title worth listening to?

This is a follow-up to the good scores in bad films thread and wondering if I can turn a negative into a positive.

-Ned

P.S. Other words containing the word "ass", like Gl-ass Menagerie", don't count!

First time a response has ever made me laugh out loud!

We wise-asses think alike.

This reminds me of a thread about porn remakes/parodies of classic films, and what they'd be called So I volunteer "Disco David" Amram's score for "Splendor in the . . ."

The OP said that doesn't count, otherwise there could be loads, like ClASS Action, ASSASSins...

Which pretty much narrows it down to Kick Ass and Kick Ass 2, as far as I can tell without googling. The former was a hugely enjoyable score for all it was an amalgam, and I expect the second to be pretty good too if it's in the same style.

Good answer, Bill, by the way.

No, because porn movies generally have crappy music in them.

How about "Donkey-Hotay"? John Lithgow is always great, and Richard Hartley wrote such a nice score for that one...

(I've seen worse puns here, trust me.)

there must be a dumbass and jackass film titles and thats about it.

glad you liked my gag tg, ive been working on it for weeks.
luckily this thread provided the perfect slot to increase the impact of the humour.

actually, come to think of it, it isnt very funny at all without the thread.

From the same year as "Two Mules...," Jacques Demy's DONKEY SKIN has a score by Michel Legrand.

I thought this thread was going to be about titles like "Lawrence of Assrabia" or "A Man for Ass Seasons". At worst, "The Assassination Bureau" (sort of like the double "ass" of movie titles)..

Shame there's no score in this. Might have been a good one.

The last 3 James Bond films.

Oh, sorry, those are movies with an ass in them rather than in the title.

If porn films count, "Weapons of Ass Destruction" has a good score.

Ooooohhhhhhh, yeah - and definitely in need of an "expanded" edition.

The porn version, FRANCIS OF ASS EASY had a terrible score.

But the film was really classy, as you would expect.
