1. Dick (1999)

Betsy (Kirsten Dunst) and Arlene (Michelle Williams) are two 15-year-old girls in 1976. When Betsy visits Arlene at the Watergate Motel, the two accidentally stumble into the middle of the infamous Watergate robbery. In order to keep them quiet, Nixon (Dan Hedaya) appoints them as honorary dog walkers. As they travel in and out of the White House, their seemingly innocent actions start a chain of events that may eventually lead to Nixon's resignation as president of the United States.

 

2. ​Flirting with Disaster (1996)

Adopted as a child, new father Mel Colpin (Ben Stiller) decides he cannot name his son until he knows his birth parents, and determines to make a cross-country quest to find them. Accompanied by his wife, Nancy (Patricia Arquette), and an inept yet gorgeous adoption agent, Tina (Tea Leoni), he departs on an epic road trip that quickly devolves into a farce of mistaken identities, wrong turns, and overzealous and love-struck ATF agents (Josh Brolin, Richard Jenkins).

 

3. I Went Down (1997)

Just released from jail, Git Hynes (Peter McDonald) pays a visit to his best friend, Anto (David Wilmot), and lives to regret it. Git catches Anto being pummeled by gangsters who are collecting on a debt and, in defending his friend, Git unwittingly scars the nephew of a noted Dublin kingpin. As punishment, Anto agrees to work for the syndicate, traveling with dull-headed hood Bunny Kelly (Brendan Gleeson) on an assignment that proves to be anything but simple.

 

4. Idiocracy (2006)

In 2005, average in every way private Joe Bowers (Luke Wilson) is selected to take part in a secret military experiment to put him in hibernation for a year along with a woman named Rita (Maya Rudolph). The slumbering duo is forgotten when the base they are stored on is closed down and are left in stasis until 2505. When they finally wake up, they discover the average intelligence of humans has decreased so much that Joe is now the smartest man in the world.

 

5. ​The In-Laws (1979)

Mild-mannered dentist Sheldon Kornpett (Alan Arkin) is uncomfortable with his daughter's marriage after meeting her future father-in-law, Vincent Ricardo (Peter Falk). Over dinner, Vince tells Sheldon about several of his intercontinental exploits, and Sheldon is concerned that Vince is not altogether what he seems. His suspicions are confirmed when Vince reveals that he's actually a CIA agent investigating an international counterfeiting plot, and that he will need Sheldon's help.

 

6. ​Withnail & I (1987)

Two out-of-work actors, the anxious, luckless Marwood (Paul McGann) and his acerbic, alcoholic friend, Withnail (Richard E. Grant), spend their days drifting between their squalid flat, the unemployment office and the pub. When they take a holiday "by mistake" at the country house of Withnail's flamboyantly gay uncle, Monty (Richard Griffiths), they encounter the unpleasant side of the English countryside: tedium, terrifying locals and torrential rain.

 

7. The Tall Guy (1989)

Sick of playing second banana to an obnoxious British comedian, a lonely, dissatisfied (and tall) American actor strikes out on his own. This farcical comedy follows the tall guy as he finds romance and a new career, playing the title role in a musical version of The Elephant Man.
