Ever wonder what’s behind the thought process for movie titles that are first names? It could be a million things, from a crazy ex to someone the writer loved dearly.
We decided to dig a little deeper and see if the Urban Dictionary definition of the names matched the movie content or offered a little insight into the characters.
Let’s start with Carrie.
In the movie, Carrie is a shy, repressed girl with a bitch for a mother. What does Urban Dictionary think about Carrie the name?
Hottest girl ever. Always hard to get. Sassy and classy at the same time. Stunning eyes that draws you in. Gorgeous and sexy. Usually looks for independence and always good at everything.
She was good at killing most of the kids in her school, so we give Urban Dictionary a win on this one!
What about, Noah?
He built a massive ark to shelter all of the animals of the earth and then he floated around with them for a while after a huge flood killed everyone.
Urban Dictionary says: One who is extremely hot with awesome hair and amazingly great with music.
Score another point for them!
Let’s move on from the bible to Greek mythology with Hercules.
He’s Zeus’ son, he kicks ass and in the movie he’s played by the ultra hot Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
What does Urban Dictionary say?
A man who can pleasure his woman multiple times a night; A man with a great stamina; A real alpha man.
Ok, we see where they’re going with this one. Another point for Urban Dictionary!
What about a duo like Frankie and Johnny?
Frankie, played by Michelle Pfeiffer, is a no-nonsense kind of girl. Johnny, played by the legendary Al Pacino, is an ex-con that’s head over heels for her.
Are they a good match according to Urban Dictionary? Let’s find out.
FRANKIE: Usually a VERY attractive male or even female. Can be a unisex name. They are normally very sarcastic and trouble makers. They love to make friends, be wild and have a good time. You know a Frankie? Yes? Than you better consider them a good friend, cause they are!
JOHNNY: Have you ever met a Johnny? Well, if you haven’t, then you’re missing out. He’s the most amazing person in the world. Just seeing him gives you butterflies. He can make you feel amazing just by holding you in his arms. When you’re worried about other girls, he’ll give you the sweetest reasons why you don’t have to worry. He doesn’t realize how special he is, which is a shame, but at least you have you have an entire lifetime to show him. Don’t ever take him for granted because you will regret it. He has the most gorgeous brown eyes, and is extremely sexy. He could have any girl in the world, so you should feel really lucky if he chooses to be with you <3
Ok, just one more. This time the storybook tale of Hansel & Gretel, which we all know and love. The movie, starring the hot Jeremy Renner and equally hot Famke Janssen, is a new twist on the old tale.
So what does Urban Dictionary think about these two?
HANSEL: Hansel = a hot guy, a handsome guy.
GRETEL: Strong, hot lil girly!
All we have to say is, Urban Dictionary FTW.
