Don't Be a Fool

I was reading in Parade magazine about how Orlando Bloom is doing a new movie on the Siege of Sarajevo. The title? "Fools Rush In."

Wait, don't most of us still associate this title with the romantic comedy with Matthew Perry and Salma Hayek? I know I do. Now they're going to use it for a film depicting the brutal deaths of 12,000 people? [The Matthew Perry film only made people *want* to kill themselves. -ed.]

What's next...a Robert Mugabe biopic called "Soul Man"?

A film about accidental bombings of civilian gatherings in Afghanistan named "Wedding Crashers"?

A film about the Trail of Tears forced relocation of the Native Americans titled "Road Trip"?

A movie about the buildup to the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin called "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"?
