Live Poll: These Aren't Nursery Rhymes

It can be hard to make up an original title, what with 8M+ movies that have been made so far. Sometimes screenwriters need to recycle. The following movies all have titles that come from a nursery rhyme, but don't follow the story of the rhymes.

Which film has the most ironic use of such a title?

incredibly well thought out poll...and a tough one to answer...

and i love the way you phrased the question...'most ironic'...('cradle will rock', 'some like it hot'...alot of great choices...)

however...in keeping with that aspect, i think i would have to narrow it down to 'and then there were none', the agatha christie mystery, which, ironically, has also been released under the title 'ten little indians'...

Jen,

For your consideration:

Jack Be Nimble (1993)
“Jack be nimble”
Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over
The candlestick.

We All Fall Down (2000)
"Ring Around the Rosy"

Ring around the rosy,
Pocket full of posy,
Ashes!   Ashes!
We all fall down!

I second ElM's suggestion and wonder why I did not think of it myself.

interesting addition...i must admit, i never heard that last line to 'london bridge'...

and honestly, i don't exactly remember what the last line was that we used to say as kids, but it had something to do with ashes...(something like '...all fall ashes...' or something like that...)...

rocky-o,

I believe you are confusing "London Bridges" with "Ring Around the Rosy".

"Ring Around the Rosy"

Jen,

For your consideration:
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (1983)

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

'Great poll, especially with the question asking about ironic usage because the irony is so great. 'Tough choice but maybe 'All the King's Men.' I really like this one.

This part of the intro is a bit confusing, I think: what with 8M+ movies that have been made so far. Do you mean what with all of the 8M+... ?

Somehow through all the suggestions I missed it. Just added it and asked for a re-push.
