An acronym is an abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word. Which of these acronym titles and their meanings, is the best name for a movie?

good stuff...loved the movie 'looker' but as an acronym it always felt kinda forced just to fit the title of the film...

so...to follow your question, i would have to say 'c.h.u.d'...

May I suggest a small correction?

Not all of these are acronyms:
A.C.O.D. is pronounced A - C - O - D, not acod.
D.O.A. is pronounced  D - O - A, not doa.
Same with LIE, LOL, REM, SOB, VIPs and UFO.

Gattaca is not strictly an acronym as you are using it, otherwise it would be short for Guanine, Adenine, Thymine, Thymine, Adenine, Cytosine and Adenine.

You forgot the "S" in C.H.I.P.S. which stands for "Squad".

I looked on the internet. On wiki it says 'CHiPs'. The word "Squad" isn't mentioned.

It's a bit unfortunate that you used the TV series MASH instead of the movie. You could probably replace it in a repush if you wish.

Yes, it was a mistake. I asked for a re-push and it's already done.

wait no...CB4...PCU....or friggin JFK on these lists!? I'm not so sure I can consider these lists very credible....sorry, but they even left out A.I. which was o.k. at best, but definitely better than a lot of these and having only two letters the first of which being A. should've been near the top of the unranked/alphabetized list, with the #1 spot reserved for π (Pi)...just sayin
