Movie Titles That Are Totally Different In French

Here in Canada, almost all product packaging contains two languages – English and French. You might assume that the two descriptions are the same, but often they’re not. If you’ve got even your high school French lessons still in your brain, you’ll notice. Oddly enough, though, the titles are (almost) always still appropriate for the film.
