#MovieMinusLastLetter: Raiders Of The Lost Ar

Where are the pirates?

Ah Twitter's pun games! My favourite time wasting activity. Somebody starts it off with a hashtag, say, food film (Pan-Fried Labyrinth) or cat films (The Divine Secrets of the Meow-Meow Sisterhood) and then a whole avalanche of wit follows. The latest one, movie minus the last letter in their titles, particularly inspired me. You had to remove the last later from an existing film's title to give it a whole new meaning. And I dreamed up not only new titles but also possible storylines, or just comments. So here they are... These are ALL mine. Some are obscure, many are cringe-worthy... but I hope they will make you laugh! And feel free to add your own in the comments box.
