Your Assistance is Requested

Scott did it, and I will now copy him.

I'm writing a script (yeah, a new one, yeah, I'm spread too thin with the scripts I'm writing, too many ideas/half-written stories, what the hell do you want from me??????).

Anyhoo, I need a title. I've got a couple idears for one, but nothing concrete.

The plot is basically this - Real Estate Comedy. Now, I'll list a few I've been kicking around, and I may have an added title on the end like:
"The Life and Death Of A Real Estate Agent" or "The Heinous Yet Justified Murder Of A Real Estate Agent." Ok, too long, but you get the point. So far I've got.........

1. Open House
2. As Is
3. Donkeypunch

Like any of those? Any thoughts? If you give me a good one I'll make you a batch of brownies. A little Naomi Watts to inspire...........

"Die or Rent"?

Just my two cents.

Death For Sale (By Owner)


Broker-Back Mountain

Not bad at all, keep 'em coming. Usually I'm pretty good with titles, but for some reason I'm stumped this time around.

Curb Appeal
Final Offer
Lawn Signs and Headstones
3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 1 Body

Justin James said...

The 7% Solution
Murder by Owner

Or if you think the part is right for Depp...

Real Estate Agents of California: Curse of the Maroon Jacket.

DDog said...

Real Estaters (the name of a 1916 flick, according to imdb)

Or, if you're writing a Naomi Watts/Laura Herring lesbian extravaganza:

For Sale, Bi Owners.

Or, what about:

Regarding Watts
Market Watts

At any rate, I say go with OSL's "Owned."

Arrested Development...unfortunately taken ;-)

but what about:
Grave Estate
Fo(u)r Sale(s) and a Funeral

Glen Buried Glen Crossed (Lost, Tossed, etc.). Bad Mamet joke. Hey, I'm tired. It's the end of my eldest's birthday week - you know the deal: a dozen 6-year-old girls dressed up in princess costumes, hyped up on sugar.

Don't get the connection between Naomi Watts and real estate comedy but whatever provides inspiration, right? I have to say, I am oddly compelled to post some beefcake on my blog so that we can ensure equal exploitation of Hollywood's finest human specimens.

Ahh, I like Scott's:

Death For Sale (By Owner)

The (By Owner) part is crackin' me up.

Patrick J. Rodio said...

Not bad, not bad.

My faves are Owned, Final Offer isn't bad, Death for sale (By owner) is funny, too.

I like Justin's "Three bedrooms, Two baths, One body."

Seems more your style.

Justin James said...

Motivated Seller
Down Payment

Midwest Mike said...

Adding to what Robert Hogan suggested:

Closing Costs

Patrick J. Rodio said...

Closing Costs & Down Payment are good, too. Motivated Seller, not bad either. Yeah, the 3 Bed, 2 Bath 1 body is a funny one.

screamwriter said...

I like "Owned" and "3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 1 Body". The best I could come up with was...

"Shack Daddies"
