I took it down due to all the complaints but then released that yes it does belong here. The movie takes all characters less seriously and makes them just look like one dimensional clowns. The movie makes part 3 look just as good as part 1-2. The only emotional scene in the movie is when Joe Pesci talks about how he accidentally ran of his pet frog as a child with his bike. Compare that to Riggs getting over being suicidal or losing a pretty hot Russian girlfriend in part 2. Or even Glover accidentally killing a teenager in part 3. So yeah this one was mostly just goofy and was the cast just enjoying each other's company. Probably should have just ended after part 3.
25. R.I.P.D. (2013)

Men in Black with dead people but with bad effects, no chemistry and a laughable role for Jeff Bridges. Bridges went from nominated 2 yrs in a row to sadly nothing but bad movies now. Tron Legacy was probably last good one.
