Oddly enough not the strangest title on this list. Indie comedy FP 4EVZ is the latest in Jason Trost’s The FP film series featuring JTRO, a very serious competitor in high-stakes futuristic rhythm games (like Dance Dance Revolution), usually to save the planet or change the world or something. This time, JTRO and family travel to the future, where they must battle once more for humanity’s right to party.

Cocaine Bear
