9. 'Saving Grace'
Grace and Matthew (Brenda Blethyn and Craig Ferguson) in 'Saving Grace' (2000)
Widowed, broke and facing foreclosure on her house, middle-class, middle-aged Grace and her gardener Matthew use their green thumbs to grow a massive stash of pot in her greenhouse. They're not too good at hiding their efforts (the whole village knows but looks the other way), but when it comes time to find a buyer - well, the pimped-out pantsuit Grace wears to London is worth the ticket price by itself. (Thankfully, the Dungeons-and-Dragons-loving pot dealers they find in the capital are no brighter.) Also a must-see is the sequence where their grand scheme goes up in smoke, making the village a blissful place. Bonus points to Ferguson for writing the hilarious screenplay.
