My list of things that can make me absolutely howl laughing.

It's hard to explain the appeal of Michael Cera - I think it's his overly dry sense of humor and near-perfect portrayal of the sensitive and shy kid that's constantly vying for approval. He gets it down perfectly, even down to the little mannerisms, which I would say probably could only be done by someone who has spent his entire LIFE acting that way. His roles on Arrested Development and Superbad (pretty much the same character) were totally unique, I've never seen anyone who got a dorky character down in a way that WASN'T exaggerated in a way that Hollywood loves to do with dorky characters.
