3. I Love You, Man (2009)

In “I Love You, Man,” Paul Rudd’s character is not your typical macho guy. He’s struggling to find male friends, especially when he needs a Best Man for his upcoming wedding.

4. My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

Here’s a delightful example of the exploration of cultural themes and the love between two seemingly incompatible worlds. Cultural misunderstandings can be funny, and in this movie, they’re not perfect, but as we follow Toula, who is marrying a non-Greek man, and her family struggles to accept him, it’s pure comedy gold. The movie was a sleeper hit, but through word of mouth, it managed to stay in theaters for months. As a result, it became a box-office hit and even got a couple of sequels.
