Washington meets Hollywood: See the most hilarious #CampaignMovieTitles

When it comes to crafting narratives for the candidates, high-priced strategists have nothing on the wiseasses of Twitter

In the reality TV age, political candidates must have a relatable narrative for their campaigns to hook an easily distracted public. Usually, those narratives — the ones we’re supposed to believe, anyway — come from hours of painstaking collaboration between strategists, ad execs, image consultants and (maybe) the candidates themselves. Other times, Twitter comes up with a hashtag like #CampaignMovieTitles and does the work cheap. Though maybe just as well.

The day after the New York primary renewed the momentum of Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump, Tweeters took jabs at every presidential candidate by substituting real movie titles with their own comical, unorthodox versions featuring the pols. Even Pringles couldn’t resist the fun. Here are 15 of the best cinematic jabs.
