@ ThomasQuinn: It's a great film! But my nickname mainly represents the first letter of my name...

"Wetten Dass" has caps etc etc

That's really nit picking

I don't agree with you. In Germany or Austria no one writes "4 Gegen Willi"! (Everybody can easily check it on Google.)

"But in titles or headlines we have caps like in English." This is not correct IMO. "Der Große Preis" is possibly an exception (as you said: "große" is an adjective and not a preposition), but see for instance: http://www.zdf.de/ZDFde/inhalt/14/0,1872,1021614,00.html / http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_gro%C3%9Fe_Preis

"Wetten Dass" is wrong, the correct spelling of this title is "Wetten, dass..?" (http://www.zdf.de/ZDFde/inhalt/27/0,1872,1001627,00.html)

"That's really nit picking": Of course I know. ;-)
