Happy Feet (2006)

The penguins learn to refine their engrained vocal skills not in the interest of spiritual uplift or any such, but, basically, to get laid.

Without a Trace

The agents are often too late to save the missing or realize that the missing is alive but better off wherever he or she has landed than back at home.

Whispers in the Dark (1992)

What emerges here is a painfully generic potboiler briefly masquerading as softcore porn.

Frasier

Frasier and his brother are effete snobs and proud of it.

Without a Trace

Insofar as it depicts agents who think and verify before acting, Without a Trace unexpectedly provides an antidote to the current media crime-fighting frenzy.
