Cruel Intentions (1999): This is the best movie title of all time. This is what The Godfather should have been called.

Election (1999): High school junior Tracy Flick is a more cunning, calculating, and hauntingly authoritative figure than mafia don Vito Corleone.

Legally Blonde (2001): Michael finds the gun Clemenza plants in the bathroom and shoots McCluskey and Sollozzo, solidifying his allegiance to the family while shattering all hopes of innocence and annihilating any connection to his former humanity, all of which could have been avoided if he stayed in college. Elle Woods graduates from Harvard Law School.

Sweet Home Alabama (2002): In this movie, Reese Witherspoon plays a woman who has to go home in order to remember who she really is. In The Godfather, the men have to go to the mattresses, but no one really learns anything significant about themselves.

Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003): Both Legally Blonde and The Godfather achieved that rarest of feats where their follow-up films outshine their predecessors. One of these sequels is a harrowing saga of blackmail and betrayal, exposing the dirty dealings behind a corrupt, unstable political regime; the other is The Godfather: Part II.

Four Christmases (2008): In this holiday rom-com, Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn play a modern couple visiting their four families for Christmas, which is simpler and easier to follow than when Vito attempts to make peace with the heads of the Five Families, especially since Michael just wipes them all out anyway in the end. Not very Christmassy!

Wild (2014): This film adaptation of a best-selling, inspirational memoir does not feature anyone waking up in bed soaked in the blood of the severed head of a horse, but much like Tom Hagen, it still manages to deliver a powerful message. This movie is also a better example of how to behave on a trip to the countryside.

A Wrinkle in Time (2018): Oprah is in this movie.
