The Bad News Bears (1976) & many more classics, in their entirety on YouTube.
Will a day come soon where the internet screens movies free of charge, with no looming guilt or backlash for its viewers? YouTube is making headway in this venture. BuzzFeed recently shared that there are nearly 100 watch-worthy movies available for your viewing pleasure. Below are a baker’s dozen, particularly amusing titles
Army of Darkness (1992)
A riot of a 1300 A.D. zombie action adventure.
Flight of the Navigator (1986)
One of the best things Pee-Wee Herman has ever done, and perhaps the most-watched VHS of my youth (other than Back to the Future and/or The Sandlot and/or Teen Wolf and/or The Goonies).
Hocus Pocus (1993)
Watch a very attractive Sarah Jessica Parker run amok with witch sisters Kathy Najimy & The Divine Miss M herself, Bette Midler.
Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)
A Guy Ritchie crime thriller for the ages that’s equally as hysterical as it is violently intense.
Road Trip (2000)
Comedic blockbuster fat-cat Todd Phillips’ first narrative feature was way more successful (and funny?) than School for Scoundrels.
Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993)
If you think the entire Robin Hood saga is spoof-worthy, add a splash of laughing especially at Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with more than a twist of Mel Brooks.
It doesn’t have to be an incredible film for one to realize it’s worth seeing just to witness Roseanne and Meryl Streep duke it out over Ed Begley Jr.
Short Circuit (1986)
Fisher Stevens. Ally Sheedy. Steve Guttenberg. Robots.
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)
A recent, instantly classic Will Ferrell stock car racing comedy that, at the very tip of its hilarious actor iceberg, co-stars Sasha Baron Cohen and John C. Reilly.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)
Who wouldn’t want to watch Cory Feldman as Donatello, Elias Koteas as Casey Jones, and Sam Rockwell shelling out cigarette cartons to the Foot Clan?
The Bad News Bears (1976)
Even Billy Bob Thornton would agree that this Walter Matthau/Tatum O’Neal original is flawless.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
At this time of year, the list wouldn’t be complete without a holiday title. It’s not blasphemy, it’s just Tim Burton putting his unique, morbid spin on America’s most sensationalized holiday with more than a little help from Henry Selick.
Wayne’s World (1992)
This and Tommy Boy are quite possibly the two VHS tapes of every 80′s baby’s home video collection, where the movie doesn’t even need to be playing in order for fans to accurately recite the entire script.
I’m betting there are more where these came from. Check out the BuzzFeed post for 74 titles to help get you started. The Outsiders isn’t especially funny, but it is the best movie ever that made the list. There are quite a few classics just ripe for the watching.
