The Movie: Shaun of the Dead (2004)
What Is It?: The film that set off the 21st century wave of obnoxious zombie movies has yet to be bettered. It may also be the best comedy of the new century thus far. Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright let their geek flags fly, and tell a tale of best pals Pegg and Nick Frost wading through a sea of undead hilarity. Genuine humanity and horror are almost as integral as the gags. It will tickle you, touch you, and shit you up.
Why Today?: Today is Best Friends Day.
