Worse than Babelfish

Translators of film titles never cease to amaze me.

In my most recent discovery, the upcoming film 'The Holiday' turns into 'Love doesn't need a holiday' in its German translation.
It's a romantic comedy, of course.
Maybe Austrian and German people are considered too stupid by translators to be able to read teasers and synopses, so we need a clue in the title to realize what's a love story and what isn't.
