    it's so sad that all the parody films they do nowadays don't even come close in terms of hilarity.

    Another great comedy film: "The Onion Movie", or " News Movie".

    Brilliant humor. Love the "Criminal goes for a job" and the "Black man's association's critique" on that film. Intelligent humor! And that Britney lookalike...

    I'd agree that Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was under-rated. I love that movie.

    The Rules of Attraction - yeah, the filmmaking was showy to the point of being a distraction, but it's a fun flick to watch for technique.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer (unlike the TV show which took itself FAR too seriously) was played for laughs.

    and

    Just One of the Guys (the female version of Tootsie)

    Yeah, Zulu is great stuff. Those were real Zulu guys in the film, too. Probably descendants of the men who fought the actual battle. Also one of the first really 'modern' sounding scores, by John Barry.

    I've seen it often enough that I know Men of Harlech by heart. Great regimental song even if the words are not quite faithful to the original.
