In this episode, GamerDude goes back to the movie theater to talk about 10 of his favorite under-rated comedies. Probably none of these movies will make anyone's Top Ten List of all time great movies, but they all have appeal to GamerDude on some level.  There are some absurd movies on this list, including The Golden Child and Big Trouble in Little China, and some genuine comedy gems, including Galaxy Quest, Keanu and Hot Fuzz. GamerDude gives a brief synopsis of all 10 of his favorite under-rated comedies.

In the second part of this episode, GamerDude pulls out the Trusty Trope Book to gripe about 10 more of his least favorite movie tropes.  You've seen that scene where someone is trying to tell the hero something and keeps getting interrupted? That's on the list, as are the scenes where women are wearing high heels in situations where no reasonable women would consider doing so, and how the TV in the local bar is ALWAYS tuned to the news channel and the critical news flash pops up on the screen just as our hero walks in.  GamerDude talks about these, and seven more over-used tropes and cliches.
