There should be a D instead of a B for 'creepy bunny costume' - a very accurate clue btw :)

I'm pretty sure that alliteration is primarily defined as when the words start with the same *sound* as each other - not necessarily the same letter. Thus I would question "Tropic Thunder". For lack of an actual illustrative example of the opposite case, the fictional movie I just made up in my own mind, "Phil, the Filandering Feline" *would* be alliterative, despite the words not starting with the same letter.

Agreed. I got it, but Tropic Thunder is not alliterative.

Sean Connery and "F," or Tom Cruise and "W" would both be good substitutes.

Wow, nearly 11 years on, and this still hasn't been corrected. Tropic Thunder is not an alliterative title.

If you Google "alliteration", most sources say words can start with the same sound OR the same letter.

A frequently-quoted example is from Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner":

“The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,

The furrow followed free;

We were the first that ever burst

Into that silent sea.”

Note that "breeze blew" and "foam flew" start with the same letter, though not exactly the same initial sound. Still counts as alliteration.

What? "Breeze" and "blew" both start with the b-sound. The fact that the SECOND sound differs is irrelevant. And "foam" and "flew" both start with the same identical f-sound.

Jim Carrey's could also be Mr. Popper's Penguins

Or Man on the Moon. (And yes, I do realize the quiz asks for a "D" movie. Just suggestions for Alliterative Movie Titles #2!)

All I could think of for "creepy bunny costume" was "A Christmas Story".

Vice Versa came to mind first for the body switching film.. Alas it doesn't start with an F..(before someone makes the obvious comment back).

I’m hereby nominating Robert Downey Junior as the King of the alliterative movie title:

Tuff Turf (1985), Air America (1990), Home for the Holidays (1995), Charlie: The Life and Art of Charles Chaplin (2003), Good Night and Good Luck (2005), Due Date (2010) Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and a brilliant double whammy: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005). A lot of multiples of 5 there. Maybe next year he’ll do a remake of the classic Dr Seuss story, “Horton hears a Who?”
