Debatable Whether Great

Film Year Rating Comments Gross (Domestic)
The Room 2003 R A tragedy showing the corrosive effects of liberal values like alcoholism and adultery, while reflecting the conservative traits of charity, innovation (in banking) and support for small business. Unknown
Bugs Bunny's Space Jam 1996 PG Michael Jordan uses the help of beloved children's characters from the 1950s (a simpler time in America's history) to beat back foreign invaders who wish to take away our freedoms. $ 90,443,603
One Good Cop 1991 R Titular New York City police detective (Michael Keaton) and his wife (Rene Russo) inherit a family-three small girls-when the detective's partner (Anthony Lapaglia) dies on duty. Has positive portrayals of law enforcers and clergy (one priest turns in money that was stolen from a drug dealer by the cop and left as a donation to his church and the girls talk about "going to Jesus"). Typical violent skirmishes mixed with tender sentimental ones, but also admissions of past adultery by the ill-fated partner, smoking, drinking, much profanity and, of course, illegal drugs. $ 11,276,846
