There's something about a so-called "dumb" movie that everyone seems to enjoy. These aren't movies with completely idiotic plots, nor are they dumb in the sense that you'd have to be stupid to like them; they're called "dumb" because you can shut your brain off for a bit and enjoy some truly well-crafted comedy. These movies don't seem like there was a lot of thought put into them on the surface, but that's how they fool you.
In truth, most "dumb" movies are anything but, and if you pick them apart like you might a more high-minded film, you'd see that these movies have layers. Fans have been picking them apart for years, and when they find something truly inspiring about a "dumb" movie, it can make its way to the MovieDetails subreddit. This list highlights the most interesting of those clever details, so take a look, and if you see one you like, be sure to give it an upvote to see which one rises to the top!
