In this thread I’m asking you to name one of your favorite films or TV shows. It does not have to be one that you enjoyed for any special reason. You just plain liked it and want to share it with others. It brings a smile to your face whenever you think of it.
I’m thinking funny movies would be a natural choice. However, it does not have to be a comedy. It can be just any movie or TV show you like for any reason.
You don’t have to limit yourself to just one. You can name as many as you like. If convenient, please post a link to the movie in IMDB or Wikipedia and maybe its IMDB rating . Sometimes some of our favoirite movies can have more than one entry in IMDB or Wiki and some people place a good deal of faith in the IMDB rating.
I know that I do. Even though many times the amount of enjoyment I derive from a film has very little correlation with the rating it got, I still seem to want to know what that rating was.
I want to start the ball rolling with a funny silly movie, “Due Date” (2010) (6.6) (IMHO very underrated and it deserves at least 7.5)
I have heard many people rail against this film. They really don’t like it.
I have seen it many times and it never fails to crack me up. Zack Galifakinakis just does it for me in this film. I don’t know why. I usually do not like his work - especially when he works with some of the other actors he has grown up with (like Jonah what’s his name). Sometimes I think his talent is just plain stupid and awful. But this movie just works wonders for me. I especially enjoyed the scene with the two children. IMO, it was just very funny stuff.
I really do not like this guy in many other of his films. But this one just gets to me.
I also just do not like Danny McBride. I strongly disliked him in Eastbound Going Down. But in this film, even though his scenes were not too funny, his overal contribution just worked for me.
And Julliette Lewis? She always turns my crank. Many times she turns it all the way. IMHO, she is a wunnerful, wunnerful comedy actress and I just love her work. Yes!
If you have never seen this film, I hope you will take my word for it and give it a shot. If you do, I hope it will turn your day around and turn your frown upside down.
Funny, funny, funny! I hope you will like it.
