A documentary that isn’t exactly beautiful or well-written or blessed with memorable characters can still be considered good, or worth watching, if it teaches you something.
42 is a reminder of how we’ve progressed as a sport and a nation. When it ended I felt moved and inspired, but a part of me was also a little sad.
Forget about the forecast. No, seriously. Pretend you didn’t just hear Mike Augustyniak toss out the possibility that parts of Minnesota could see up to a foot of snow later this week.

The two funniest scenes in all of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone are also, probably not coincidentally, the ones that most obviously wouldn’t really work if the movie had any particular viewpoint.
