'Grease' or 'Vaseline'?: 20 movie titles that got lost in translation

By
The art of international film distribution is a subtle, mysterious one. We don't envy the men and women tasked with translating Hollywood movie titles - many of which rely on metaphor, irony or turns of phrase that have no meaning abroad - into a form that foreign punters will understand.

Some are overly informative (He's A Ghost!). Some are depressingly literal (I'm Drunk and You're A Prostitute). Some are straight-up bizarre (Please, Do Not Touch The Old Women).

So sit back and marvel at Digital Spy's list of 20 movie titles that got lost in translation.
