Big wave of Poseidon puns rolls over the web:

Poseidon Founders on Its 1st Weekend (LA Times)
Mission: Impossible Sinks Poseidon (filmfodder.com)
Poseidon disaster film remake capsizes at US box office (Radio New Zealand)
Poseidon sinks at US box office (Guardian Unlimited)
Poseidon goes belly-up (flickfilosopher.com)

and my favorite, with three movie titles:
Poseidon Sets Sail, Meets Perfect Storm Mission: Impossible 3 (PostChronicle.com)

but the classic is:
Despite cast, loose script sinks ship (Portland [OR] Tribune)

The only punned good review I could find:
Poseidon avoids that sinking feeling (The Christian Science Monitor)

Now, I love puns. I find the play on words witty and creative. HOWEVER, the overuse of puns in today's media is just so trite and it's getting old.

I wish these writers would get it write.
Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during the root canal? He wanted to transcend dental medication.
