    "It's one of the most brilliant movies out there! Unlike American comedy, this one is really witty and breaks the 4th wall before Deadpool did it in the movies. Anyway, I love to connect Monty Python and Fate Grand Order. I imagine Artoria Pendragon a.k.a. Saber speaking quoting Graham Chapman's lines as King Arthur."

    "Quoting Childish Gambino: THIS IS AMERICA. I think Idiocracy will predict the future of America: bombarded by commercialism with less concern about the education system. I really expected this type of comedy from Mike Judge, the dude behind Beavis and Butthead, King of the Hill and The Goode Family."

    "Comedy doesn't have to involve slapsticks or low-brow humor. It can be thought provoking and smart commentary. I'm sad the films like Thank You For Smoking doesn't garner a lot of fans."

    "I do recall it's a commentary about the British left-wing politics during the 70s and not an attack of Christianity. In fact, they portrayed Jesus with dignity. This is why I love John Cleese, Terry Jones and the Monty Python crew!"

    "It's a parody of your typical American family and the "American Dream", it's also about liberation form the constricting world and set of morals by society. American Beauty is not necessarily funny but it's beautiful on its own ways."

    "Before Leslie Nielsen's career went down the drain (thanks Waynas Bros and the Scary Movie franchise), this is one of his best acting career. If you want comedies like this, I recommend Naked Gun and the Police Academy movie series."

    "This what happens when you try to assemble a pastiche of horror cliches and market it to Hollywood. Only the first and forth Scary Movie is good, the others are real stinkers!"

    "When I've seen this at highschool, I laughed really hard. Now I realized it's a shallow spoof of Hong-Kong movies by white people. Nonetheless it's a guilty pleasure of mine. You'll be threatened by a villain named Betty, don't you?! "
