The 10 Most Doofily Enjoyable Films Of The Past Decade
There has been a lot of talk recently about the idea of "good" movies vs. "rewatchable" films. This, I suppose, is meant to explain why The Lone Ranger is on Quentin Tarantino's list of Top Ten Movies Of 2013. And that's fine. Even through the fog of my film snobbery, I can understand the need for fun, low-stakes comedies. But The Lone Ranger?!?! Oh we can do better. The following is a list from the past decade of films I love to watch. Films that haven't provided any insight into humanity or unforgettable shot compositions, but, man, if they're airing on cable on a Saturday morning? I'm in. There are other comedies of the past decade that I loved more. Bridesmaids or The 40 Year Old Virgin spring to mind. But those movies are too important. They stir up too many feelings. These movies? They're just pure fun. And there's nothing wrong with that.
The School Of Rock (2003)
Hot Fuzz (2007)
The Hangover (2009)
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) The first one is still good. Blow me.

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004)
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
Tropic Thunder (2008)

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
