The Freshman (1990)

With Marlon Brando taking the mick out of his Vito Corleone character in The Godfather and Matthew Broderick providing the boyish charm, this crime comedy couldn't really go wrong. Broderick plays Clark Kellogg, a film student who gets mixed up in some shady speciality food dealings – the endangered animal kind. But it's Brando who makes the film, with a little help from a Komodo dragon.
