Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls
Despite the fact that Tyler Perry relies on contrivances and sentimentality, he manages to spin a good yarn in the process.

Elizabethtown
Cameron Crowe's romantic comedy doesn't make the attraction between the characters played by Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom believable and then goes off in dozens more unprofitable directions.
"...This hoary Hollywood trope has gotten the treatment from Frank Capra to Zach Braff, and while the ambitious Elizabethtown..."

The Hudsucker Proxy
This Coen brothers film is a goofy ode to genres and eras gone by. Although it's a little less “weird” than much of their work, it still retains a mannered and quirky air with performances that walk a line between realism and understated surreality.

You Can't Take It With You
Based on the antic stage play by George S. Kaufmann and Moss Hart, this Capra film earned Oscars for the film and the director. With her impeccable timing and idiosyncratic delivery, Jean Arthur plays a girl who must introduce her fiancé and his parents to her decidedly eccentric family.
"...Directed by: Frank Capra. Starring: James Stewart, Jean Arthur, Lionel Barrymore, Edward..."

True Hollywood Stories
The Catastrophe of Success is anything but a glowing memoir: The director of It's a Wonderful Life is portrayed as wildly egotistical, as well as anti-union, anti-commie, and generally anti-fun.

Mr. Deeds Goes to Town
There's more than a Depression-era dime's worth of hokum in this story of a country bumpkin who inherits millions, then has his worm bitten in the Big Bad Apple, but at least it's Capra-corn.

Steven Spielberg enters his Capra period with this optimistic melting-pot tale starring pal Tom Hanks, whose underused comic instincts come to the fore.

Fast, Cheap, & Out of Control
While the rest of the nation was rallying around the flag, screenwriter and director Sturges was spitting out a series of rapid-fire Hollywood comedies that showed untruth, injustice, inequality, corruption, chicanery, and illicit sex running rampant across this land from sea to shining sea.
"...the Dream Factory? Wasn't it the seed bed for Capra-corn, where scoutmasters win over Washington and country rubes defy..."
