The Castle
1997

No matter that it sits beside a noisy airport runway, dangerous power lines, and a toxic landfill, a man's house is still his castle. So when Darryl Kerrigan and his blissfully ignorant family receive notice that they are being forced to sell their home to make room for airport expansion, they simply refuse, eventually taking the case to Australia's High Court. And while that may tell you something of the simple David and Goliath plot, it's difficult to convey just how charming this goofy comedy is. Suffice it to say that The Castle possesses a certain something -- a vibe, if you will -- that makes it utterly irresistible.
