12 movies drastically improved by putting Les Battersby in the lead role

We were too busy asking if we could, we never stopped to think if we should

Going to be honest here folks, just thought this particular task inspired by Les Battersby's eternally dozy facial expression would be very funny. And it turns out I was right.

Les Battersby, as a concept, is hysterical. The big man gave us a decade of endless content on Coronation Street and for that, we owe him a great deal.

Who knows what ever became of Les Battersby. It doesn't matter. Somewhere, deep in the depths of the United Kingdom, Les Battersby is currently sipping on a lukewarm can of discounted beer, clad in double denim, shouting obscenities both at the telly and at Cilla.

To pay sufficient homage to the man that frankly put Coronation Street and Weatherfield on the map, it makes perfect sense to put Les Battersby as the lead role in some of the greatest movies ever made.

His Status Quo and denim obsessed self deserves to ascend to greatness. Name one movie that wouldn't be improved with Les Battersby in the lead role? Yeah Shrek is fair enough,. But other than that, it's a done deal.

To prove this hypothesis, I've (poorly) Photoshopped Les Battersby into the lead role of some of the greatest movies ever made. Why? Why not? It's Friday. Live your life.
