How can one teeny tiny letter ruin a film? That sounds illogical. Made up. Impossible! Movies are supposed to be tougher than that. But we’re about to find out how even the slightest change to a movie title can completely knock us off balance and reduce us to giggles! And all it takes… is one tiny letter.

Imgurians have been having loads of fun replacing one letter in a movie title to completely ruin it after user Kraken003 started up a viral thread. The thread got even more popular after Imgurian Serenalese, a streamer, reposted it because she absolutely loved the content. And now, it’s all here for you to enjoy, dear Pandas!

As you scroll down, remember to upvote the new titles that made you laugh (we won’t lie, we had way too much fun working on this!) and share some of your own film titles where you alter one letter. Meanwhile, I’m trying to think how I’d ruin ‘Harry Potter' better than claiming that I came up with 'Hairy Potter' first (in my head).

Serenalese was very open about the fact that this was a repost and credited the original post for their work. Her repost was so successful, in fact, that it got on the front page of Imgur, making Serenalese react with, “HOLY POOP FRONT PAGE!! Uhh follow me on twitch where I draw anime waifus and build legos.” Genuine surprise, wouldn’t you say? And the plus side is that more and more people get to see the content in the original thread, too, so everybody wins.

Serenalese is a Twitch streamer who “focuses on trying to be positive, chat interaction, and having fun! I stream gaming, LEGO building, and coming soon some digital art-ing!” She also wears elf-ears on some of her streams which shows how much of a fantasy fan she really is.

Wordplay, puns, corny humor, and dad jokes are all fantastic, in my personal opinion, even if I know that it might make some people cringe (and cringe hard). However, liking wordplay doesn’t just say something about your sense of humor; it’s also a possible indication of your intelligence.

For example, John Pollack, the author of ‘The Pun Also Rises,’ told The Atlantic that “for most of Western history, puns were a sign of high intellect.” He added that “They were a tool, and they remain a tool, to pack more meaning into fewer words.” I don’t know about you, dear Readers, but this is making my ego swell quite a bit.

Make more sense than the original title.

Research suggests that puns require you to use both sides of your brain. The left side, the linguistic hemisphere, takes care of the language of the pun. Meanwhile, the right hemisphere takes care of the punchline. Add the two together and you have something that’ll make your friends giggle and groan.

If you’ve ever feared that AI and robots could take over the world and replace human beings, well, there’s actually something to be afraid of. Computers might be developing their ability to make dad jokes a bit too fast.

Forbes writes how back in 2011, a group of scientists from the University of Washington created a program that could add the groan-inducing phrase we’ve heard (and probably said) hundreds of times before, “that’s what she said,” to the right sentences. The program’s accuracy was a whopping 72 percent. Scary? You betcha. Soon enough, you might not even be sure that it's a human being saying "that's what she said" whenever you speak (though we sincerely hope that's a worst-case scenario and AI won't end up being so cringey/awesome).

Pollack also suggested in his book that the reason why some people absolutely detest puns is that they have over-bearing, controlling personalities. “If you have an approach to the world that is rules-based, driven by hierarchy, and threatened by irreverence, then you’re not going to like puns,” he explains. Which is a theory that we can all test out! Let’s just check which of our friends doesn’t like the wordplay in this list.

This is far from the first time that people have come up with the idea to change one letter in movie titles. The trend has been going on for years and years. It’s been a constant topic on Reddit, it’s even been on Esquire, and of course, it’s been featured on Bored Panda in all of its glory.
