I remember seeing Police Academy One and Two in the theater; I thought Two was funnier than One. Three and Four I think I saw on cable, I don't really remember liking either of them all that much. I cannot speak to Five, Six, or Seven. Does Seven really exist?

I loved the songs Dustin Hoffman sang in Ishtar, the couple's anniversary song 'I left you a little love in my will' still makes me laugh. Other than that, I don't recall a lot about the film. Beatty's Reds (1981) probably should have made my list though.

Tank Girl (1995) was pretty damn good, but I saw it back to back with Barb Wire (1996) and I guess it may have gotten a little diluted by proximity. Also, it seemed a little too self-conscious about itself.

'Adhd'? I'm sorry Sarah; I have no idea what you mean.

Pink Flamingoes & Female Trouble were great and enjoyable, but it would be easier to love a whore than loving those films. They would only make fun of you for loving them and then when you slept, they'd put cigarettes out on your back.

Mo' Better probably would not bear repeating, I loved it when I saw it though. Spike Lee is amazing.

I think I know how erik voted in today's imdb poll. Flirting with Disaster was a bad movie.. but certainly no reason to exclude it from this list.
