Rosamund Pike and David Fincher on-set of Gone Girl (2014)
ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.
(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)
As a guy who worked at a movie theater for 5 years - I can attest to the fact that this happens. All. The. Time. Someone once bought a ticket for “B Movie” by saying “One for Bzzzt Film”.
People also frequently show up. It knowing which movie they want to see. Which…still baffles me to this day…
The best way to keep things interesting is trying to guess what movie the elderly folks are trying to describe. I had a couple come in and describe thew movie they wanted to see as “The one about the Jews.” They meant “This is Where I Leave You” which most certainly doesn’t feature a Jewish family. Usually I’m good at guessing what people mean, but they stumped me for a bit with that one.
