Poll: Funny English Titles Used by French to Rename US Movies

When a movie is released in France, 4 solutions are possible for its title. First, we keep the same title (for example, we say Inception). Second, we translate it (Retour vers le futur for Back to the future). Third, we change it for a completly different French title (Le mans 66 for Ford v Ferrari). And most surprising, the fourth, we change the title for another English title. Here's some of them.

Which one do you find the most surprising ?
