Press "1" Now

So the Seinfeld "Moviefone" episode was on yesterday...A great episode in its own right, with the near-death of Independent George and Jerry's relationship with the pool guy Ramon. But the reason this episode is truly great is because it contains a whopping seven fake movie titles, a Seinfeld staple.

Movie titles mentioned in this episode: Cupid's Rifle, Mountain High, Chunnel, Firestorm, Agent Zero, Brown-Eyed Girl and Chow Fun.

Movie titles featured in other episodes of the show: Blame it on the Rain, Checkmate, Cry, Cry Again, Death Blow, Extreme Measures, Means to an End, The Muted Heart, The Pain and the Yearning, Ponce de Leon, Prognosis Negative, Rochelle Rochelle (a young girl's strange erotic journey from Milan to Minsk), Sack Lunch and The Other Side of Darkness.

There really is nothing better than a good fake movie title from Seinfeld. So if you can come up with a few more, I'd be greatly appreciative...sound off in the comments section.

Unrelated (and updated) awesomeness:
1. If you missed this story about Kris and Anna Benson, you're a terrible human being. Check it out immediately.

2. Here's a cool, out-of-yet-inside-the-box concept. I would love to see this thing in action.

That is one ambitious wife that dude Benson has. I gotta find me one of those. They definitely get mad props for their SUV romp with those eager fans anxiously awaiting. Guess those eager beavers weren't the only ones pounding away!

I think Prognosis Negative has come up a few times if I recall correctly. It was referenced to in "The Junior Mint", although not as a movie title. There was definitely another time too, other than the "Farfel" episode in which George and Elaine had to spend time together, alone, without Jerry. Now my mind's goin blank...

"Prognosis Negative" might be my favorite one, but it's really tough to overlook "The Pain and the Yearning" for the top spot...

Mr. Cowboy - I'm thrilled that you dedicated more than 50% of a post to one of my favorite subjects - Seinfeld fake movie titles.

My favorite has to be Sack Lunch. Awesome.

Any time, Titsy...Seinfeld fake movie titles are as clever as they come. I wish I could go into fruther depth about my love for them, and I probably can, but I'm kinda lazy in terms of blog-posting right now. Where the f is Fielder?

Interesting background info re: Prognosis Negative....

Robert Weide is a documentary film maker and also works as an executive producer on Curb Your Enthusiasm. The following quote is from an interview avail for your review at this link:

http://www.duckprods.com/projects/cye/cye-sweetzerinterview.html

"In the early 80's, I was Director of Development for Rollins & Joffe, a production and management company best known for producing Woody Allen's movies. A script came across my desk called Prognosis Negative which was one of the funniest scripts I ever read. The writer came in for a few meetings. It was Larry David whom I was familiar with from the ABC late-night comedy series Fridays which also starred Michael Richards, a Rollins Joffe client. Well, they never produced the script, but through those meetings Larry and I became friendly. He was doing stand-up comedy at the time and on countless nights, I'd go to the clubs with him and watch him work. On many, many nights the audience would just stare at him like carp looking up from a pond. Sometimes they'd be outright hostile. I would be in the back of the room, hysterical, thinking, 'If the country ever caught up to this guy's sense of humor, there'll be chaos in the streets.' Well, eventually that came to pass with Seinfeld. So I saw Larry go from an unacknowledged, unsuccessful emotional wreck to a very successful, very wealthy emotional wreck."

Wouldn't it be grand to get a copy of the PN script???
