Poll: Wackiest Spanish Translation of a Movie Title

Usually when an English-language movie is released in a Spanish-speaking country, the original title is kept (¨Dirty Dancing¨), translated literally (¨The Ten Commandments¨), or translated to something very similar (¨Searching for the Lost Ark¨). Sometimes, though, the Spanish titles are WAY off, to the point of making you laugh out loud. The titles vary from country to country, but which one strikes your fancy the most?
