Guess that Movie Week 77: Lost in Translation

This week everything has been a victim of poor translation. Each of the following is an english movie title that has been translated into a foreign languauge and then translated back into english. It's amazing the gibberish that comes out in the end. To win you just need to tell me what the original english title was.

Here are the rules:
If you know or think you know an answer leave your guess in the comments section. As people guess I will grey it out and give them credit (using google to find the answers will disqualify you(...I know all and see all...), the person who has the most correct guesses each week will get a fun movie genius award to decorate their blog. Any person who wins 5 weeks (consecutive or non-consecutive) will earn a Movie Master award and must then refrain from guessing for 5 weeks.

Now the guessing:

1. If You Leave Me, I Delete You (Yum-Yum)

2. The Big Liar (Undead Film Critic)

3. Mr Cat Poop (SamuraiFrog)

4. Captain Supermarket

5. Night Of The Knight (Splotchy)

6. Six Naked Pigs (Yum-Yum)

7. The Urban Neurotic

8. Just Send Him To University Unqualified

9. Die Slowly, Now More Than Ever (Splotchy)

10. This Hit Man Is Not as Cold as He Thought (Undead Film Critic)

11. Night In The Cramped Forest
