Titanic comedy spoof – screen shots

October 24, 2011

Scene 1

Screen shot from Titanic in which Rose as an old lady tells a group of her time on The Titanic.

How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Rose mumbles, coughs and confuses her words
  • Rose has issues with breaking wind, which she does throughout.
  • The naked drawing of Rose also shows her to be rather undesirable.

Scene 2

Screenshot from Titanic of passengers boarding the ship

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Jack’s character is rather comical, he has a geeky image and a comical run.
  • Jack enters the ship by a rope getting caught around his foot, which drags him along with the ship as it moves away.

Scene 3

Screen shot from Titanic in which Rose in in her cabin with her fiancee admiring the extravagant artwork

How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Use satire to mock the characters’ values of high art by portraying ‘fine art’ as a stickman figurine.

Scene 4

Screenshot from Titanic in which Rose is having dinner with her family

How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Rather than being upset by her family Rose is left upset by her weight.
  • While the rest of the family have small plates, Rose has a huge plate full of food.

Scene 5

Screenshot from Titanic in which Jack attempts to pull Rose overboard.

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Rose comically trips over Jack which leads her to fall overboard.
  • Jacks attempt to rescue her involves Jack changing into a full scuba-diving outfit.

Scene 6

Screenshot from Titanic in which Jack takes Rose to a party and teaches her how to dance

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • The music being played is very modern and upbeat.
  • Jack teaches Rose to dance to a very modern and popular dance type which is in no way romantic or elegant.

Scene 7

Screenshot from Titanic in which Jack draws Rose as she lies naked

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Jack uses a very modern device to take a picture of Rose rather than draw.
  • Jack also mimicks Rose by changing the picture of her by drawing a moustache on her and then laughs to himself.

 Scene 8

Screenshot from Titanic in which Jack and Rose have sex in the back of a car

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • The car in which Jack and Rose have sex is very small and squeeks and shakes throughout the duration of the intercourse.
  • Through the windows of the car arms and legs can be seen pressed against the glass as the car is too small for the couple.

 Scene 9

Screenshot from Titanic just as the ship is about to hit an iceburg

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • The men watching from the tower remark about how they could not see if an iceburg was coming because of Rose’s size.
  • They miss the iceburg becuase they are distracted by Rose.

Scene 10

Screenshot from Titanic in which people are evacuating the ship on lifeboats

 

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Rose’s size means the lifeboat in fact breaks when she is in it leaving her in the water.
  • The band who in the film play very sad music, play a very upbeat ironic song ‘Sugar we’re going down.’

Scene 11

Screenshot from Titanic in which Jack and Rose are both in the water clinging to a floating piece of wood

 

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Rose does not take the situation seriously and begins to sing an upbeat song while in the water with Jack.
  • Rose also begins dancing which causes her to let go of Jack.

Scene 12

Screenshot from Titanic in which Rose blows a whistle to get the attention of a lifeboat

 

 How we subverted the genre to comedy in this scene:

  • Rose is left with a party blower, foghorn and symbols to get the attention of a lifeboat.

Scene 13/14

There are no screenshots available from the original film as these scenes we created for a comic effect.
