Cautionary tale- "Wolf of Wall Street"  for some reason I'm on the call list of a pump and dump firm- I always ask the telemarketer if they are calling from Wolf Incorporated of Wall Street- sometimes they figure it out, sometimes not.  Oh well.

For all those Brits of a certain age what about the BBC series "The Good Life" from 1975?.  Felicity Kendal (thinking man's crumpet?) and Richard Briers

I watched "The Good Life" on PBS in the USA when I was a child (although it was renamed "Good Neighbors").  I used to think that show was hilarious.  Now it gives me all kinds of great ideas. :-)

"The Gods Must Be Crazy" is one of my favorites. A peaceful tribe is thrown into chaos when an airplane pilot throws a Coke bottle out of the plane, and suddenly everyone covets the Coke bottle and is arguing over it.

Quicksilver (just saw it last night). It's an absolutely ridiculous movie that makes no sense whatsoever, but it does have a certain Mustachian flare: all the protagonists ride bikes, and the baddie runs people over in his car.

There's also a really cool scene of a guy doing tricks on his bike.

Fight Club would be my number one pick (and it has nothing to do with Brad Pitt...really, nothing :-)!). Most of the other ones mentioned here too. Probably a couple of comedies: Office Space and Joe Vs. The Volcano (The film is about a man who, after being told he is dying of a rare disease, quits his soul sucking job and accepts a financial offer to travel to a tropical island and throw himself, passionately, into a volcano. Along the way he meets and falls in love with a woman who shows him how to truly live). Another Brad Pitt movie where he is a climber who ends up living in Tibet for decades (can't remember the name  - Seven Years in Tibet I think - but based on a true story).

+1 for Office Space!  I love that movie!
