If only the real world were like the movies.
I can't speak to the TV shows--I've seen almost none of them--but I second the movies Michael Greenspan lists. Some of the fine movies listed are Airplane!, The Big Chill, Broadcast News, Clueless, Galaxy Quest, Love and Death(!), Manhattan, Good Will Hunting, Rounders(!!), Searching for Bobby Fischer(!!!), Sling Blade, Three Days of the Condor--"How do you know they'll print it?"--Annie Hall, Kramer v. Kramer, Sleeper, and Serpico.
And special double-bonus credit for The Boys from Brazil. Through the years my wife and I have occasionally imitated the unintentionally comic Sir Larry, doing his best to be a proud

And note the difference between our current president's confusion regarding the movie and the similar situation, say, of Ronald Reagan's thinking "Born in the U.S.A." was patriotic. (Though little remarked upon in the latter case is the enormous difference between the lyrics and the music. Springsteen wedded very downbeat, depressing lyrics to some of the most enhilarating music in rock. It's an awful cheat, but entertaining.)
