Bringing Down the House
This movie (from 2003) is hilarious. Peter (Steve Martin) is a lawyer who communicates with a woman online, whom he believes to be a lawyer. They set up a date, and when Peter opens the door, he finds Charlene (Queen Latifah), a wild woman who has escaped from prison and wants Peter to clear her name. My favorite part is where she first comes to the house, and Peter is shocked to discover this is the woman he has been communicating with. Steve Martin and Queen Latifah are both funny in this.
