Sometimes words don't work well in other languages, that's just a fact of life and the pitfalls of local dialects. So what are the funniest foreign movie titles? Take a look here and you'll see how sometimes words do get lost in translation.
Foreign translations of film titles often end up... a little mixed up. Some make no sense at all, while some cut right to the heart of the film, by passing any artistic thought or meaning. In any case, these are the funniest, oddest, most absurd foreign translations of film titles that have been dreamt up (and released) so far.
Many of these movies can be found on Netflix or Amazon Prime (in English, of course). If you're a movie buff, also check out the Best Foreign Legion Movies, the Best Oscar-Winning Foreign Movies, and the Must-See German Movies From the 21st Century.
