Movie Titles Bulk Up With #FattenAMovie Trend on Twitter

Because Twitter and because Saturday.

Maybe it had something to do with the still-unexplained appearance of a selfie of the actor Kevin Bacon looking like an unrecognizably plumper version of himself.

Whatever the origin, the hashtag #fattenamovie has been trending on Twitter all day, its conceit being that the titles of popular movies can be “fattened,” which is to say edited with alliterative words borrowed from a diet of which your doctor would not approve. The most popular one I saw repeated a few times was “Frying Nemo.” Get it?

Silly, but indulge in some weekend fun. Here’s some of the better ones.

Of course, we here at Re/code couldn’t help but get in on the fattening fun ourselves.
