This was the funniest movie because I have three older brothers, and I swear that this movie reminded me of them. Simply put, I am befuddled at why everyone says that this is such a boring, dull and drab movie. Do they think the same about ConAir? It had more plot holes than Swiss cheese. Unbelievable. Yet they were both great movies. I also don't get those who say that Thirteen Days was inaccurate. My God, the only thing that the filmmakers didn't have was access to the thoughts of those involved. What more do you want? The thing to remember about films like Trapped and ConAir is that they are fictitious, and the whole point of making movies is to suspend belief and tell a story. It doesn't have to be funny. It doesn't have to sad or make a point or have a morale. It just has to be. This is what separates the boys from the men, and thus separates filmmakers from those with axes to grind and wannabes. You make a film because it means something to you personally, not for commercial value. When people finally figure this out, it will be too late, but at least at that point we will have a better understanding of each other.
