Purists often refer to the American-made Godzilla movie as GINO — Godzilla In Name Only. It just wasn’t the real thing.

And what about that X-men spin-off, Wolverine? I say it’s Wolverine In Name Only, or WINO.

The new V TV series? VINO.

Have you seen Road House 2? Believe me, it’s RHINO.

I hear Disney is going to remake Bambi – I’m sure it’ll be BambINO.

Everyone pretty much agrees that the Fat Albert movie was Fat AlbINO.

And I’m not looking forward to the inevitable Dracula In Name Only — DraINO.

I prefer to stay out of the limelight. It makes me look green.
