Hysteria (2011)

Hysteria, as in what was believed to be a medical condition affecting women, to be alleviated through... having a doctor touch them right there.

The comedy is based on the idea that it's pretty funny when the prevailing scientific paradigm of the day turns out to be precisely the opposite of what we now know to be true.

Watch for: Jonathan Pryce saying all his lines - the most hilarious of this film - with a perfectly straight face.
