And how about trying this game: add one word to a film title to make another silly title.

Example: Take “Batman Begins” add “School” and get “Batman Begins School”

Here are more examples:

Schindler’s Shopping List

Lord of the Onion Rings

Bruno Mars Attacks

American Cream Pie

Iron Man Boobs

How To Train your Dragon 2 Poo

The Fast and the Furious Darrhea

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Kidney Stone

You can have lots more fun with famous book titles too.
