Can You Pick the Word That's Missing From All Three Movie Titles?
by Stella Alexander

"____ Day Afternoon." "Alpha _____." "Man Bites _____." If your mind automatically filled in the blanks with "dog," this is the quiz for you!

In the world of film, there are only so many titles you can give to movies. While it is easy for writers and producers who are working off of a novel, when it comes to creating original pieces, the list of words isn't as endless as you'd think. For films like "Titanic" and "The Terminator," it's expected that you won't find many films with similar words. For films like "A Few Good Men," however, you can be sure there's an abundance of movies with "few," "good," and "men" in their title!

With hundreds of films released every year, how well can you match the ones with similar titles? If a word is missing from all three, can you pick the right one? With "Perfect _________," "When a __________ Calls," and "__________ in Our House," would you recognize the Halle Berry, Camilla Bell, and Fran Drescher thrillers about strangers? Could you pair up the rom-coms of "The Wedding Date," "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," and "The Wedding Planner"

Let's test your film knowledge and find out if you have what it takes to pick the missing word from these popular film titles. Lights, camera, action!
