The 5 Funniest Movies You've Never Heard Of

Every absurdity has a champion to defend it. Oliver Goldsmith

That champion would be me.  I love cheesy, crazy movies that may push the boundaries of absurdity and taste.  These movies may seem a little "off" to some.  But hey, I have been accused being a little "off" myself from time to time.  So if you like these kind of movies, you should watch these trailers. You just may stumble upon your new favorite movie.
