"The beer's pretty tasty for a stout.  Or a porter, since it IS a porter.  Whoopsie." – GG

"Not bad at all!  Pretty damn good beer, actually.  Yeah, it's tasty.  For a dark beer, it's pretty light." – OV

Ridiculous conversation ensues about what we know about Finland.  GG did a book report on it in 5th grade and associates Finland with blonde people and sheep. OV thinks of tall people. Readers, we promise we're not idiots, we just weren't the most stellar of geography students.

This is another one of those movies you'd totally watch if it were on the teevee, but probably wouldn't make a real effort to see…a determination that, in retrospect (several hours later) seems odd because we proclaimed it a "pretty damn good beer." 

Sooo…a movie that's both average and pretty damn good, all at once?  That's a toughie.  I'm going with The Butterfly Effect, because it never would have occurred to me to proactively seek the film out, but when I watched it, I was surprised that I thought the concept was interesting and that the movie held my attention throughout.  Overall, pretty damn good, but I don't see myself adding it to my Netflix queue anytime soon.
