Can't believe I had to go this far down the thread to find mention of What's Up, Doc?

and still no mention of Borat...



That elusive hide-and-seek cow is at it again
Kung-Pow! Is one I try to force onto close friends but that just usually gets very awkward, very quickly.


I'll watch Forgetting Sarah Marshall any time it's on. "Woohoo! Dracula musical!!!"


Clue never gets old.


Haunted Honeymoon (1986) is wooo-woo-WOO... excuse me. It's woo-WOO-woo-wonderful.
o.O

The Private Eyes is silly fun.

And one mustn't forget about Galaxy Quest. "YOO AAR AAAR LAAST HOPE'."
