If you've never heard of this movie, go YouTube it. Extremely hilarious. You won't regret it. Trust me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBFEgMqhOs4

Should make one about Singapore too. Some of my top favourites in Singaporean English:

delegated service (dedicated service)
stuffs (stuff)

and for those NSmen out there who've prob heard it before:
tunnel (tonner)

Anyone else got anymore "Top Favourite Singaporean English Mistakes" please feel free to post them here. In fact some of the members here can learn a thing or two. :)
