The Namesake

Whatever else you get out of this movie -- a give-take equation that depends largely on your willingness to follow Nair’s lead -- it’s worth watching for Tabu’s superlative turn alone, which would earn her an Oscar if there were any justice in the First World.

Son of the Mask (2005)

The baby is endowed with awesome powers to shape-shift and abuse every living creature that comes within reach of his chubby little hands.

Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (2004)

Harold and Kumar isn't pushing a political polemic, yet it still manages to be an odd achievement.
