LOL at the tagline in Eegah: "The crazed love of a prehistoric giant for a ravishing teen-age girl"

The "Quantum of Solace" one is also misleading because it has nothing to do with the Quantum of Solace short story in Fleming's "For Your Eyes Only". Though saying that, it wouldn't really make much sense if they brought that story into it.

From wiki:

The governor explains his point to Bond: when the "Quantum of Solace" drops to zero, humanity and consideration of one human for another is gone

Obtuse, but not misleading.

Very obtuse. Fair point though. I'm surprised Tyrannosaur didn't make this list, though it is only misleading if the title is took literally. :P

I spent YEARS think Trainspotting was "A gentle documentary profiling those guys in anoraks who stand around station platforms and note down engine numbers, possibly stopping now and again for a nice cup of tea." and avoiding it as such.

Until finally someone made me watch it and I found out it was cool as fuck!

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. What we were expecting - a Star Wars movie. What we got - a Star Politics movie...and not a very good one.

The Trainspotting reference is quite obscure. Dived straight in nonetheless, and yes, it was and still is cool as fuck.
