Bored of the same old plot lines and predictable love stories? Here are 10 charmingly eccentric movies that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Swiss Army Man

It’s the one where Daniel Radcliffe plays a farting corpse. It’s funny, it’s charming and the soundtrack is lovely.

Eagle Vs Shark

Taika Waititi directs a romantic comedy of a special variety. The couple is awkward and painfully ordinary. The story is sweet, hilarious and honestly quite touching.


Craig Roberts plays a Welsh teen on a mission to lose his virginity. The story is relatable, entertaining and some of the humour is deliciously dark.


It’s a classic and Ellen Page is brilliant.


Jon, a young wannabe musician joins forces with a kooky band of misfits lead by Frank (Michael Fassbender) aka the strange guy with the paper mache head.

Sing Street

An Irish teenager starts up a band to impress a mysterious girl he just met. It’s heartwarming, nostalgic and again, the soundtrack is brilliant.

500 Days of Summer

An absolute classic starring Zoe Deschannel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The Lobster

If you are single it is a legal obligation to go to a hotel where if you don’t fall in love before your stay is up, you will be turned into an animal. It’s not all bad though, you get to choose which animal.

Seven Psychopaths

A great movie made up of lots of entertaining mini stories and one hell of a final showdown.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Joel (Jim Carey) is in love with Clementine (Kate Winslet) but the break up is so painful he opts to get every memory of her removed from his brain. Halfway through the procedure, however, he changes his mind.
