I do remember name changes to American movies in Great Britain. A movie about a child-star-cum-talent-scout was called "Life with Mikey". The title refers to a cereal commercial in the States. The lack of cultural context in the UK forced a name change to "Give Me A Break" (which, conversely, wouldn't have worked in the US because that is the name of an old and completely unrelated TV show). There was another movie called "Adventures in Babysitting". I guess the title sounded odd, I don't know, but they changed it to "The Night of Our Lives" (blander but closer to the plot).
