1. Stranger Than Fiction - In this 2006 Will Ferrell movie a and IRS worker awakens one morning to hear voices in his head. The voice in his head (the narrator) is telling the story of his life exactly as it is happening. I have watched this movie 3 times and will probably see it again.

2. Big Daddy - Staring Adam Sandler (Sonny Koufaz) who takes in a little boy to show his girlfriend he can handle responsibility. Things become a little more difficult than he plans. This 1999 movie is one of Sandler's best A movie worth watching more than once. Rated PG13. Presented by Crackle.com
3. Slacker - Many film critics suggest that this 1991 comedy that has no plot, is one of the best movies of all time. It's pretty good I won't go quite that far. You will follow the lives of many strange misfits in one day in Austin Texas. This unique movie is rated PG and has been uploaded to YouTube by FilmBuff.
4. The Freshman is a 1990 movie staring Matthew Broderick as Clark Kellogg. Clark is a first year student in film school finds himself broke due to circumstances beyond his control (he was robbed). Clark then gets involved with Sabatini who is played by Marlin Brando and just happens to bare a remarkable resemblance too, you guessed it, the Godfather. Clark eventually gets involved in a caper with Sabatini that involves an endangered species. This movie should make you laugh out loud. The Freshman is rated PG and was uploaded by crackle.

7. Soccer Mom - The mother of a girl on a very bad soccer team disguises herself as a famous Italian soccer player in order to get hired as their coach. How long will she be able to fool everybody?

10. Real Genius - In this 1985 movie staring Val Kilmer a group of genius students are assigned a school project which is to design a large laser. Their teacher plans on selling it to the military to be used as a weapon. The students find a very unique way to get back at him for stealing the laser. YouTube viewers have given this movie 50 likes with 4 dislikes, but outside critics and myself give it great reviews. The uploader was crackle.
11. The General - This is a 1926 silent film staring Buster Keaton. I'll make this short and sweet. I guess I'm very prejudice when it comes to silent films. To be blunt, I hate them. To be fair, this movie has had better reviews from the critics than has The Lion King, The Sting, Toy Story, Annie Hall, and many other blockbusters. I watched it for about 15 minutes and that's about all I could take. You should love it if the critics are right. Check this film out and let me know what I'm missing. A big thanks goes out to its YouTube up-loader, Drelbom.
12. Malcolm - This very unusual comedy from 1986 is probably the funniest Australian movie I have ever seen. Malcolm is a very timid genius who looses his job and turns to a life of crime to pay his bills. This movie has not had many views on YouTube as of yet but I'm sure it eventually will when word gets out. It was uploaded by Lionsgate movies.
