50 funniest movie title translations

The task of translating a film title for overseas audiences would seem like a fairly simple one, handled by one of those fancy types who speaks more than one language.

However, a worrying amount of proof suggests otherwise. These 50 examples imply that it's probably a job thrown to a confused intern, who relies on Google Translate for help. Either that or we're being laughed at by most of the world.

If you know of any other crackers then let us know at the bottom.
