But others...well, let's just say they haven't aged well.


Maybe you grew up watching Sixteen Candles, but now you can see how racist and problematic it is.

Jake Ryan is a straight-up predator.

Or maybe you once found I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry hilarious, but you cringe while watching it now.

Or maybe you just find Love, Actually to be a kind of gross, misogynistic mess.
