Film critic Richard Roeper has seen thousands and thousands of films -- and not all of them were pretty. But as a result he's stored up enough movie knowledge to write this hilarious collection of movie lists. Some of the irreverent, offbeat, and inventive lists in this book are:

* 5 Things That Happen When a Wrongly Accused Fugitive Walks into a Bar, a Restaurant, or a Convenience Store

* Age Difference Between Michael Douglas and His Leading Ladies

* 11 Movies that Employed James Brown's "(I Got You) I Feel Good" to Indicate that a Character Feels Good!

* 5 Reasons Why George Bailey Isn't Such a Wonderful Guy in It's a Wonderful Life

* 7 Films in Which Ben Affleck Cries Like a Big Fat Baby

* The Gross-Out Hall of Fame

* 13 Great Perks of Being a Movie Character

And so many more . . .

Review: 10 Sure Signs a Movie Character is Doomed: And Other Surprising Movie Lists

User Review  - Goodreads

Some interesting lists and cool facts mixed in with a lot of information that I didn't end up having much personal interest in. Plus it's a little dated by now. More targeted toward those who really like movie trivia than anyone. Read full review

User Review  - Goodreads

Moderately amusing just to read alone, but this book of lists really shines as a conversation starter or quiz book with movie junkie friends. Read full review
