* ''Film/{{Duplicity}}'': On its movie poster - "She's ex-Cia. He's ex-MI5, together they are stealing a fortune." She is Julia Roberts, he is Clive Owen.
* ''Film/SteelJustice'': TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture a cop loses his son to a car bomb and the boy is reincarnated as a toy robot dragon. That can shapeshift into a [[ShapeshifterBaggage giant robot dragon]] and help his dad bring his killers to justice. Apparently the purpose was as an [[MerchandiseDriven extended advert]] for the toy dragon in question. Perhaps the best bit is that this truly outlandish premise is paired with one of the blandest, most generic titles imaginable.
* The ''Film/RushHour'' trilogy. According to Creator/RogerEbert, "Wunza legendary detective from Hong Kong, and wunza Los Angeles cop. And wunza Chinese guy, and wunza black guy. And wunza martial arts expert and wunza wisecracking showboat. Neither wunza original casting idea, but together, they make an entertaining team."
