Notes – WWDITS is the most fun I had at the theaters, and for me that will always trump supposedly “good” or “important” films because having fun is good and important! It’s easily the best comedy I’ve seen in a decade. The 2’s are all tied, I thoroughly enjoyed them all equally in their own ways and they all stand out and could be #2 to me. #7 for nostalgia/fun alone and not higher b/c original storytelling severely lacking there. #8 totally surprised me, #9 is par for their course, #10 was loads of fun.

Deal with it!
