10. Nadia’s birthday in Birthday Girl
Remember this thing? Nicole Kidman as a Russian mail-order bride? How awesome is that? It’s a pretty good movie too, so that’s something.
It’s really more of a shitty birthday for the guy throwing the party than anyone else. Our pitiful hero John has just received his non-English speaking bride and if the whole thing wasn’t uncomfortable enough, her shitty friends show up out of nowhere and just start crashing his pad. Of course John is way too British to protest properly and things end up getting extra terrible when these guys hold his lady hostage in exchange for him robbing the bank that he works at.
It’s extremely awkward on many levels – purchasing a bride, dealing with her aggressive friends, and finally robbing your co-workers. It’s as painful as being handcuffed to a toilet, which actually also happens to John later in the film.
