14. What We Do in the Shadows (2014) — Flat Meeting

Paramount Pictures

"The flat meeting in What We Do in the Shadows has got to be one of the funniest scenes to date. A bunch of vampires sitting around discussing chores and ragging on the one housemate that doesn’t pull his weight is so funny and accurate. I knew this was gonna be an awesome movie and I was right, it’s now one of my favorites."
