I was watching “Youth in Revolt” which my friend absolutely hates and I absolutely loved it, it is hard to describe especially with my sense of humour but the best way I think I can describe it as “subtlely” funny. Then I started to think about other movies I love that are not liked as well as they should be.
“The Longest Yard” - not the old one, the new one. It is awesome, Adam Sandler in anything, even the decievingly named “Funny People”. What could you not like about this movie, Cheeseburger Eddie, The Hammer, superstar vs. half a star. Awesome.
“Charlie Bartlett” - what a great movie, some student becomes a psychologist and if I remember correctly, uses his drug plan to provide for the students of his school. Sort of sounds like it could be similar to “The Trotsky”.
“I, Robot” - Will Smith is up there with Adam Sandler minus the decisively named movies. Anything he touches is awesome, but this is even better, the line “You know, somehow, “I told you so” just doesn’t quite say it” is awesome.
“The Love Guru” - people say this is Mike Myers worst movie when in fact this movie is right in line with the rest of his movies. Unfortunately for Myers, everybody has grown up there making his movies lame to them, not so. Stephen Colbert steals this movie in the short time he is in it as well as Justin Timberlake. Jacques “Le Coq” Grande.
“Crank” - take this movie for what is, an adrenaline rush of absurd, unbelievable, intense, fast packed movie and you are going to love it. Watching it for the story line, not so much. Its’ ridiculousness is only topped by its’ sequel which takes the realism factor and stretches it even thinner.
