Here are some of my favorite movies that I feel like flew under the radar
What’s up Tiger Lily (1966)
One of the most unique movies I think, and Woody Allen’s directorial debut, this movie took a Japanese spy thriller and dubbed it entirely in English except with different words and sentences to make it into a comedy. and its really funny!
More American Graffiti (1979)
Not as well known as the first one, and definitely not *as* good, but it’s not a bad film either, it explores the lives of the main characters from the first movie (except for Richard Dreyfuss’ character since he wasn’t in this one) and I definitely recommend it for fans of the first film.
Airplane II (1982)
Another movie that isn’t quite as popular as the first one, but trust me it’s 90% as funny as the first one. If you loved Airplane! you will love Airplane II.
Grandma’s Boy (2005)
Gosh I love this movie. Yes it has alot of toilet humor, but I found it hilarious. It’s one of those good stoner movies. If you liked Harold and Kumar and those kinds of films, this one is a good pick up!
Shanghai Kiss (2007)
Ok I’m biased here too. This is one of the very few movies that shows a relationship between an Asian dude and a white girl – but other than that, it’s also a pre-Crazy Rich Asians film about seeking out Chinese identity for an Chinese American. Really relatable for me.
Scott Pilgrim vs The World (2010)
One of my favorite movies of all time. The humor, the action, the comic book like sequences and editing… this movie is perfection. Chris Evans and Brie Larson are in this film (before they became bigger stars). I also might be biased because I’m Canadian.
