Dicks Has a Title!

Exciting news from the world of my hero, Kevin Smith!

His new movie finally has a title!

Well, it originally had a title. The title was A Couple of Dicks. "Dick," of course, being an old slang term for detective, highly appropriate because it's a cop buddy movie, starring Bruce Willis and Tracey Morgan as a couple of detectives on the trail of a stolen, highly valuable baseball card.

But, as we all know, "dick" is also a slang term for penis, and because of that, most TV networks in the USA were reluctant to run ads for it.

Anyway, on his Twitter feed today, Smith announced that he and the marketing guys have finally decided on a family-friendly title that ensures ads can run at all hours of the day.

Smith isn't saying what the new title is, just that the new title will be announced with the first trailer, which'll be in front of Sherlock Holmes!

I can hardly wait! The movie formerly known as A Couple of Dicks is due out in February, so they don't have a lot of time to advertise this sucker.
