So a friend and I are throwing together a quick, informal dinner party with a few friends, and we're probably going to have a movie because, why not? Since it's a lighthearted, informal affair, something in the lighthearted, informal comedy range would probably be best, right? I would imagine that my normal choice—a nine-hour documentary about some horrific war or genocide—would probably not make for the best light entertainment.
