What movies would I like?

MovieFilter: I recently watched and enjoyed the film All the Real Girls. Specifically, I seem to enjoy movies that are: slow, subtle, somewhat funny, southern, romantic and a bit long. Any suggestions for more things to fit this bill, or does this one movie meet all of my needs in a way that no other can? Hopefully helpful side note: I saw Up In The Air tonight, and also enjoyed it, mainly for the same sense of calm and subtlety I liked in ATRG.

Is there life after 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry'?

In light of the horrendously awful "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," are there any GOOD (i.e. both funny and non-homophobic) comedies about straight people either having to pretend they're gay or, more generally, about straight people slowly but surely letting go of their prejudices towards LGBT people?

Existential Entertainment

I went and saw I <3 huckabees the other month, and after having a lengthy discussion about what a friend and I decided were its strong points, I wondered if other movies dealing with such issues in a comedic light exist, or even movies enjoyable in the same sense, since it seems like most enjoyable movies draw inspiration from lesser known predecessors.
