Actually I second Napoleon Dynamite. The first time I saw it, I tol dmy wife "I didn't hate it but I am not sure what I thought of it". The second time I saw it, I liked it better. I do think the lead guy Jon Heder is a one trick pony.

Blades of Glory did pretty good at the box office, so calling Jon Heder a one trick pony may not be entirely fair.

Personally, I haven't liked any of his movies but he evidently has a base of fans that does. My nephew and elder niece think he's crazy funny. Maybe it is a generational thing.

I thought Napoleon Dynamite was one of the funniest, sweetest movies I've seen in a while. Liked it from the beginning.

A movie that grew on me, was Last Tango In Paris. It sort of seemed like a disjointed mess the first time through, but the second time, what Brando was doing hit me between the eyes.

The Phantom of The Opera with Robert Englund. At first I thought it was nothing more than "Freddy Krueger Goes To The Opera". But after watching it a couple of times, I realized that it is just a darker telling of the story. It is now, in my opinion, a great horror movie. Also, Monty Python and The Holy Grail. The 1st time I saw it I did not find it funny. Now it is one of my favorite comedies. Smile

I left the theater during Joe Vs. the Volcano. Fast forward fifteen years: I've watched Joe at least 200 times.

Monty Python and the Holy grail. "MY NAME IS ... Ted, Ted the Enchanter" , I think it has to grow on everybody. A more serious movie is MirrorMask. It has some wicked (yes I just said that) Special Effects.

I enjoyed the "Meaning of Life" (Monte Python), but was greatly disturbed by the long armed guy/crossdresser-with-water faucets/elephant/find-the-fish thing. Although after watching it many times I have come to find it slightly less disturbing.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

The vomit scene from "Meaning of Life" gets better with every viewing, for me.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".
