I thought the point was to suggest movies that were relevant to the times. Ace Ventura? Seriously? Not even close. All that does is show what an ass Jim Carrey is.
That's why I picked the movies I listed. One more would be Broadcast News w/William Hurt and Holly Hunter and Albert Brooks.
I guess it's in how you define "relevant." I took that to mean movies that were popular, that are often used in pop culture references, that people still quote today, and that are a part of the collective social conscious. Ace Ventura, while not a masterpiece, is certainly a part of our culture and I still hear it quoted/referenced all the time. I mean, even now I'm still saying "allllrighty then" and I didn't even like the movie that much! I figure the point of a list like this isn't just to watch the serious, thought-provoking dramas, but also to partake in the cultural milieu of slapstick comedy, ridiculous horror films, sappy romances, and inspiring stories that made up the films of the 80s and 90s.
