Comic Relief: Add a word to a title.

The title for the screenplay I'm working on eludes me.  I have a "working" title for the sake of saving my screenwriting file, but it doesn't grab me.  And the title should grab!

A word can make or break a title.  Which brings me to today's comic relief… Add a Word Ruin a Movie (

Some examples from the site:
  • Game of Porcelain Thrones 
  • The KFC Bucket List
  • A Bed Bug's Life
  • The Shawshank Tax Exemption
The list goes on.

After reading a few posts, I decided to ruin some titles myself.  They might already be listed on the site (I didn't have time to read them all), but here's what I came up with...
  • Gone With the Flatulent Wind
  • The Sisterhood of the Traveling Smarty Pants
  • The Philadelphia Sandwich Experiment.
  • How To Potty Train Your Dragon
  • The Book Worm Thief
  • The Lone Power Ranger
  • Crochet Hook
  • American Beauty Mark
  • Captain Phillips Screwdriver
  • Schindler's To-Do List
So…apparently I can ruin ten titles, but can't up with a one intriguing title of my own. 

By adding one word, which movie titles can you ruin?
