Won't hurt you to smoke some pot first.

Heh. One of my friends gave me a DVD of that movie and told me the same thing. I never got around to watching it.

Anchorman and Zoolander are two of my favorite comedies of all time.

Dewey Cox is hilarious and severely under-appreciated.

Tropic Thunder is a tad overrated, but Robert Downey, Jr.'s performance alone makes it a good movie.

Dodgeball is dumb as hell, but still good for a laugh.

Anchorman is awesome

It might be the perfect lowbrow comedy.

The correct answer is The Royal Tennenbaums. :thumb:


I also picked Anchorman, Zoolander, Dodgeball, Tropic Thunder, and Meet the Parents.


I agree with whoever said Dewey Cox was vastly underrated. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I also like Talladega Nights more than a lot of the nominees (and I hate Nascar).

I pretty much have every line memorized, seen it about 30 times along with 500 days of summer

Really? I never thought it would appeal to me, so I've never seen it. Guess I'll add it to my Netflix queue now. :thumb:

I love Old School, Zoolander, Tropic Thunder, The Cable Guy, Meet the Parents and Wedding Crashers. A lot of good laughs on this list but those are the top IMO.

I fucked up. It's Meet the Parents, not Meet the Fockers. I didn't even see Meet the Fockers.

Bottle Rocket - sucked, not even somewhat amusing
The Cable Guy - you either love it or hate it, I loved it.
Bongwater - Ya, I hated this too. I don't get how these early Wilson brothers movies made them famous
Permanent Midnight - never heard of it
Meet the Parents - Loved it, De niro was a great choice
The Royal Tenenbaums - I thought it was just ok
Zoolander - EPIC, cult classic. Loved it
Orange County - I thought it was funny, nothing great though
Old School - EPIC comedy
Starsky & Hutch - pretty terrible
Envy - never heard of it
Saving Silverman - It was okaaaaay
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy - Loved it, Go fuck yourself San Diego
Meet the Fockers - A few laughs, but overall pretty bad
Breakfast of Champions - never heard of it
Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny - no interest in seeing this
Blades of Glory - terrible
Tropic Thunder - Loved this flick, cracked me up
Wedding Crashers - loved it and I'm sure it influenced many to try
School of Rock - I enjoyed it, it was solid
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story - I cracked up the whole time
Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story - a few funny parts, but overall pretty stupid
Nacho Libre - this was just a big pile of shit

Wheres the "Brat Pack" movie poll?

You forgot Step Brothers.

The more i watch that movie, the more i'm convinced its the best of its kind since Dumb & Dumber. Its one chortle & giggle after another...

Step Brothers is a grower. Kind of underwhelming the first time you see it, but it gets funnier every time you re-watch it.

04-10-2011, 11:46 AM
Also, shouldn't The Other Guys be on there? That was pretty good, too.

I've seen about half a dozen of these movies and none of them wowed me, so I just went with the Kurt Cobain death wish.

Step Brothers along with Talldega Nights I think falls into another category for this, and I forgot The Other Guys, I'll toss it in somewhere.

Uh, they all fit way fucking better than Bottle Rocket and The Royal Tenenbaums, which have nothing in common with the rest of the field except for the Wilson brothers.

Yeah, the wilson brothers are in the "Frat Pack".

The numbers fit better to put those movies in the Judd Apatow vote.

That makes no sense. Not every movie a Wilson brother is in counts as a "Frat Pack" movie. Those are Wes Anderson movies that happen to have Frat Pack members in them. Would you count Marley & Me as a Frat Pack movie?

"Frat Pack" movies generally have a particular tone and sensibility. Step Brothers, Talladega Nights and The Other Guys are McKay/Ferrell movies (not Apatow movies) and fit that tone. Bottle Rocket and Royal Tenenbaums do not.

Basically, THIS WHOLE POLL IS A LOAD OF BULLSHIT.

Dude, I don't think you've read the other threads. I'm doing a poll of movies people I know would smoke to. This is the nomination process. I need so many in each poll, so I'm sticking them here and there and trying to not overload one poll with too many 'obvious picks'. You guys get a chance to nominate some later. Chill out.

LMAO. I think Kurt is trying to pack more clearly bannable posts into a 24 hour period than anyone in CP history. This is two I've seen so I'm guessing he's up to 8 or so.

Are you thinking of the Matt Damon, Ryan Phillippe and DiCaprio clique as the frat pack? I've heard it for both groups.

I've never heard the term Frat Pack before now.

And I hate Wes Anderson movies.

Why is Meet the Fockers on the list but not Meet the Parents?

And where is There's Something About Mary?

Meet the parents is up there but no Somethings about Mary. It'll be along.

1. Look again.

2. That's Farrelly Brothers, not Frat Pack. Not every Ben Stiller movie is a Frat Pack movie.

Is that the Breakfast of Champions with Bruce Willis? That is the worst movie ever made. Filmed in the town that I live at a car dealership that I used to work at. A lot of the extras were people that I know. But seriously a terrible movie.
