Sometimes a trending hashtag on Twitter gives users an easy way to keep up on the latest information on a particular topic, while at other times the hashtag is just plain humorous and gives people a chance to contribute their own wit.

The #OppositeAMovie hashtag was definitely the latter.

In some parts of the world, #OppositeAMovie took on a life of its own as folks took the opportunity to change the names of popular films, often with a humorous result.

From classics to new films, it seems no title or genre was spared. Some of the opposite titles were obvious.

While other tweets used creative graphics up the ante.

Of all the tweets to use the hashtag, some of the most simple were also the most endearing.

It’s not exactly clear what prompted the #OppositeMovie hashtag, but given the tens and thousands of tweets, it clearly brought a lot of laughter.
