Discussion: Should Kevin Smith get his Dicks back?

Kevin Smith is not one to shy away from controversy, as was evident from the unnecessary hoopla that raised by the ZACH AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO poster last year. Now it seems like a new controversy might be brewing. Earlier today we brought you news that Smith's next project would be A COUPLE OF DICKS, with a script not written by him (a first for Smith). Just a few hours after, Variety is reporting that the movie will be called A COUPLE OF COPS... boring. So what the hell just happened?!

DICKS has been in the title since the script started circulating, so why is it a big deal now? It's obviously not being used as a noun and surely movie-going audiences are smart enough to identify an adjective when they see one. Kevin Smith doesn't seem to be fighting this one, though. Perhaps it's because the script isn't his and the studio really does have final say in this situation, but don't they realize the revenue possibilities of a movie called A COUPLE OF DICKS?! The hip t-shirts, the bumper stickers, the his/her's bathroom towels? It's a movie that practically advertises itself! I hope I've made my case here. So what do you guys say? Should Smith get his DICKS back? I'm voting yes.

    I think he will get the dicks. Especially if he gets the “snakes on a plane” internet crowd brewing yelling for dicks.
