Default [Spain] The 51 State. "Negocios Sucios"

When I had lost the hope that it was having the premiere in Spain " The 51 State " they have released it today under this curious title.

Got it on DVD... only watched it once... More times to come...

Yes, I forget to translate... "Dirty Bussiness" in States no idea, but from "The 51 State" to "Dirty Bussiness"... I don't know who translate it... I'll traslate it as "El estado 51" or maybe "Formula 51" but not that.

I see the movie yesterday... It's not a great movie, but I spent a good time... and Meat was funny.

It was Formula 51 in the states I think. I really enjoyed it, but a lot of the dry humour was very British and I think probably loses a lot in translating.

I agree the football sorry soccer element was totally British and the language and sayings the same. The soccer theme (Robert Carlyle) was totally brilliant and alien to anyone outside these isles and I say this as someone who doesn't like soccer even though my grandad was an Arsenal goalkeeper.

and mine scored the first ever goal at Wembley

now I'm gonna get shot for ging off topic
But in a desperate attempt to rectify that, I can't see why they have to change the film names from country to country, Mc Donalds doesn't change it's name when it has restaurants across the world.

Don't go Rosie - unless it's to get the new politcal party started.... me thinks that is a very good idea. If something has a proper name it should not change just becasue it is being marketed in a different country -
Just like you are Rosie and I am Sin no matter where we go in the world.

Yes the film was shot in Liverpool, and that's where Meat filmed. I chuckle at what he'd have made of Ricky Tomlinson's accent and turn of phrase

I've just finally seen this film last week. Meat was mean as hell in this one, huh? I usually find something vaguely redeeming in his characters, but the Lizard was pure evil. I loved the "explosive" ending, how much more over the top could you get?

In response to this i think its because if it was released here under its US title Formula 51 it would have only attracted an older audience, who'd have thought it was a movie about a chemist. Whereas 51st State would appeal to a much wider audience.

Prime example of a film not changing its name was 'Swimfan' which bombed in the UK.
