Boyz II Men

We've Come to the End of the Road

... For Your Movie Title

1/27/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0124-boys-to-men-movieBoyz II Men are on bended knee asking a filmmaker to change the title of his new movie "Boys 2 Men" ... and if he refuses, the group says they're going to court.

Reps for Boyz fired off a letter to the movie makers this week saying they never gave permission to use the name ... so they're ready to pull out the heavy artillery against the filmmaker, as well as any theater or website that runs the flick.

The writer/director for "Boys 2 Men" tells TMZ ... they will not change the title of the movie unless they're boxed in a legal corner ... and so far they don't think they are.

A, B, C ... BBD.

Whats wrong with their name. I have fond memories of the band. Do they want Men to Senior Citizens?

It's written out different. If I saw the movie poster I wouldn't think it was about the group. They only own the rights to their group name the way it's spelt correct?

Were they originally Boyz ll Men in the first place? It's a bit different to Boys 2 men.

Love this band. They can still sing and they never sold out or made music that degraded women. Even with one less band member (Mike's illness took him out the group ten years ago), they can still harmonize. Give them their name back, they've earned it!

You can't copyright a title. Especially if it's different.

What do they think they're going to sue for? Nobody owns words or digits. The movie is spelled differently so there is no infringement. Get over selves, Boyz.

"Boys 2 Men" sounds like a pederastic escort service.

Change the name to "Boys to Men" and they will be fine. The singers can't have a trademark on the common phrase that they themselves got their name from. However using the number two instead of "to" in the film does enter a gray area.
