234. Scotland, PA (2002)
We're not bad people, Mac... just underachievers who have to make up for lost time.
Shakespeare's "Macbeth" retold in the setting of a 1970's fast food restaurant that discovers the power of "drive-thru". If that sentence doesn't get you interested, then you probably wouldn't like it anyway. Christopher Walken is awesome as Macduff, a vegetarian whose distaste for the greasy burgers only rivals his distaste for murder, the three witches are replaced by three supernatural hippies (one of which is Andy Dick), and the film is accompanied by an ever present soundtrack of '70s classic rock which surprisingly fit the themes of Macbeth to a tee.
