300. The way some people tried to say it was historically accurate...man, I laughed so hard.

How about...Anchorman?

I read somewhere that their periods attract bears. The bears can smell the menstruation!

It said so in a documentary on Life of Brian. Swedish cinemas had the line "This film is so funnny they banned it in Norway". Though I did watch it on new years eve so some exact details may be sketchy.

Eerily this makes so much sense. The name Swansea is derived from the viking invader 'Svain's' sea. This makes Swansea sound a far more interesting place than it actually is...even the sex shop has closed down!

"Oh Brother" also very funny and "Raising Arizona"
