I honestly cant fathom all the love for Bad Lieutenant from people with really good taste in movies. I guess I need to see it again because it just seemed like a horrible mess.

Cera makes Paper Heart great, one of last year's best actors. Cross makes Year One good, not just decent. Though there are larger problems to be had with such a list, for FLY.
