Wow guys, we have managed to compile a list of really awesome movies. Thanks, that should keep me occupied for a long time. Btw, have any of you guys seen this movie ? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1674086/ . Its called little johny the movie, animated but really funny, not for kids though the language and the jokes are quite 18+.

There's Something About Mary
The Princess Bride
