Sometimes it’s okay to just go with an idea that pops into your head. Because sometimes that idea can be astonishing. (And sometimes it can go the other way.) A guy wrote in today said he didn’t care for the title of Curtis Hanson’s film Lucky You, and right away an alternative came to me: Lucky Jew. Not because it sounds like an impertinent Mel Brooks title, but because I would simply want to see a movie about a Jewish gambler. I just would. It speaks to me. It sounds like rude fun. I would also be a bit more intrigued if the film was called Luck You. This implies that being visited by luck can be a bad thing, because it throws you off your game. I don’t mind Lucky You as a title — it’s okay — but I like these alternatives better.
