* Disney/{{Moana}}: A triple case: This animated 2016 Disney movie was re-titled to ''Vaiana'' in European and most Asian countries [[note]]Even going so far as to rename the titular protagonist to that, and to have the voice actors re-record all dialogue and songs in the movie where her name is mentioned, with the alternate name[[/note]]; people generally think this is because of the existence of an Italian porn star (in the '90s - now deceased for over two decades) and supposed Disney concerns about family friendliness over that. However, the real reason for the title change was a cosmetics company called the same owns trademark to "Moana" across Europe [[note]]Since "Moana" means ocean in Polynesian languages, and in the movie the ocean plays a big role, and the cosmetics company claims to use ingredients from the sea, for both of them it's a MeaningfulName too[[/note]].

** This confusion is purportedly why BillMurray signed on to play Film/{{Garfield}}, confusing Cohen for Coen. Doesn't explain the sequel, though.

* Used as part of a joke in ''Film/OfficeSpace'', where one of Peter Gibbons' co-workers is named MichaelBolton.

He's the one who [[TakeThat/{{Film}} sucks!]]"
