I've just been randomly wikiing stuff and came across the page for Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. There were some funny translations when screening the movie in countries outside America, such as:

----
Singapore briefly forced a title change to The Spy Who Shioked Me (shioked means "treated nicely"). In Finland the film was called Agentti joka tuuppasi minua (The spy who bumped me), in China The Spy Who Liked Me a Lot. The Italian version was titled La spia che ci provava, which can be roughly translated as The spy who tried to seduce, but in a slightly more provocative way.

Not all countries translated the title into something less raunchy. The Norwegian title of the movie is Spionen som spermet meg, which is a slightly dirtier way of saying "The Spy Who Ejaculated on Me". In Quebec, the title is "Austin Powers: Agent 00sexe" (Austin Powers: Agent 00sex).

----

I love The Spy Who Ejaculated on Me. :D

Haha yeah, it woulda been better than "The Spy Who Tried to Seduce".

Can you speak Italian?
