40 Hilarious Movie Title Mistranslations

Sometimes it just makes you think they’re not even trying or simply taking the p#*s!

If you were to visit your local cinema and saw that any of these films were playing. Which one would you go see?

We’ve visited mistranslations before with Sack the Translator – Hilarious Chinese Mistranslations and Ooooh! Totally Dirty Sounding Food Products. Also we’ve seen some truly awful movie posters with 30 Really Awful Movie Posters and 29 Really Awful Bootleg Move Posters, but today we take a look at some completely hilarious film title translations from around the world.

Sometimes it makes you think they’re not even trying or simply just taking the piss!

From the misleading ‘A Supertough Kangaroo’ to the film title ‘He’s a Ghost!’, which gives away the films iconic twist. The honest ‘Santa is a Pervert’ and then to the truly baffling ‘Floppy Coppers Don’t Bite’

To be honest I actually prefer some of the foreign re-titled versions, with my particular favourite being ‘Mom, I Missed the Plane!’
