1987 starts with Steve Martin’s nose making for a great romantic comedy as Roadblasters mixes racing and shooting for arcade fun. 1997 offers the unique choice of the corny Batman and Robin and the creepy My Best Friend’s Wedding. 2007 offers up a comedy flop with Evan Almighty, but pays penance with Flight of the Conchords.
