Ok, I'll do what Ess did, and will pick the movies I've seen and liked from your suggestions as well as add maybe a few of my own.

The Gods Must Be Crazy- I thought this film was both informative and very humorous.

Oh Brother, Where art Thou?- Although I haven't watched the movie in a few years, I remember laughing so hard at certain parts.

Sister Act- One of those great 90's movies.

Also,

The Last King of Scotland
The Sandlot
Syriana

Wow, glad to know you liked it as well. I myself enjoyed it a lot because I had done a little reading on the dictator of Uganda who I can't seem to quite remember his name.

I forgot to add another movie that I just can't believed I left out:


OFFICE SPACE
