"O Brother" came to mind - it's a funny case. Certainly has the bad Turturro accent. If not for the soundtrack, I'd definitely say it goes here, but T-bone's music choices seemed to make the humor insider instead of outsider. Whether that's a smokescreen depends, I guess, on the viewer. Be nice to the banjo - it can't pick its own players. Or who's cast to act like a player. There's definitely a level of my hell where I'm forced to read and watch stuff from the biscuits-n-kudzu-gravy school of southern narrative, but, since that comes from southerners to start with, I'd argue that's more Bollywood than Indiana Jones.
