This week brings us the romcom “What’s Your Number?” in which Anna Faris learns that there is a certain amount of partners a woman can have before nobody wants her anymore. While numbers shouldn’t be used to measure a woman’s worth, they do provide some great titles.
One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest
This 1975 film took all five major Oscars that year (picture; lead actor and actress; director; and screenplay). More amazingly, it actually deserved them. See the glory of Jack Nicholson before he became a parody of himself.
2 Fast 2 Furious
Should this count as 4? Anyway, cars drive really fast, and Paul Walker is pretty, and then everyone associated with this 2003 film goes home to sleep on a giant pile of money.
The Third Man
Are you scared of Ferris wheels? You will be after seeing this 1949 noir masterpiece. Here’s a tip: Don’t ride them with shady characters.
Four Weddings and a Funeral
This 1994 romcom brought us the bumbling, floppy-haired charmer who is Hugh Grant. Also a lot of hats, and the puzzling fact that people were still paying Andie MacDowell to act.
The Fifth Element
A cabdriver meets God (kind of) and She has a penchant for skimpy clothes. There are big guns and Gary Oldman and a blue, opera-singing alien! This 1997 film is so much fun.
