List Rules Films with puns in the title. Vote based on the best film name puns, not how good (or bad) you think the movie was.

A pun is defined as "a joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words that sound alike but have different meanings." Some people think they are the lowest form of humor, other people think they are just great. But one thing is for sure, Hollywood loves its movie puns. This list ranks all the best puns in movie titles, regardless of whether or not the films themselves were any good at all.   

Some people love to take movie titles and make puns out of them such as "Finding Emo" about a goth clownfish or "Snape's On A Plane" about Harry Potter's professor in flight. But when it comes to the punny movies on this list the job is already done for you! Hollywood has never shied away from using puns in their actual movie titles as a tactic to get audiences laughing, thinking, or just cringing, all of which help promote the movie, for better or worse.  

So which of these plays on words do you actually find creative? Which ones are so bad they're good? And which ones are just plain bad? Upvote the best film title puns below, or any great puns in movie names that are missing from the list.
