    Snatch!

    Turkish: Fcuk me, hold tight. What's that?
    Tommy: It's me belt, Turkish.
    Turkish: No, Tommy. There's a gun in your trousers. What's a gun doing in your trousers?
    Tommy: It's for protection.
    Turkish: Protection from what? "Zee Germans"?

    If you like surf movies, "endless summer" and "endless summer II" are really good.

    A good movie -- if you have not watched it, 50 first dates. I was really surprised at how much I liked it.

    Speaking of surf movies, Thicker than Water and The September Sessions by Jack Johnson are both great recent movies, done in the spirit of The Endless Summer.

    Also have to add a few movies to the list:

    Pulp Fiction
    High Fidelity
    Shawshank Redemption
    The Blues Brothers
