Turner & Hooch, 1989
A slobbery love story between man and man’s best friend. After a murder, anal-retentive cop Scott Turner (Tom Hanks) takes in the victim’s ugly, poorly house-trained dog Hooch in the hopes the mangy mutt will lead him to the killer. After destroying Turner’s immaculate house, Hooch makes like Lassie and leads Turner to a money-laundering operation, then (spoiler alert!) gives his canine life to save Turner’s. Sure, it’s no Saving Private Ryan, but Tom Hanks delivers a memorable performance despite competing for face-time with an incorrigible scene-stealer.

Take home: Someone you're willing to start fresh with, or at least some severely windblown hair.

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, 2004
Cheech & Chong for the Facebook generation. This slacker road trip flick features two middling buddies in frantic pursuit of the ultimate munchies—60 White Castle sliders. Shockingly, the film enjoyed modest approval from critics and went on to become a DVD cult classic. Crammed with ethnic jokes, stoner misadventures, and even a cameo by Neil Patrick Harris playing himself, one reviewer called it “freakin’ hilarious.” We concur.
