If I was saying things like Weekend At Bernies and Porky's were among my favorite films, then that's one thing. But the structure, story telling, editing, music, acting, etc in those films I listed are on par - if not better than - something like, say, L.A. Confidential. (Which I think is a fabulous movie, btw) They're just of a particular genre.
