The best example I can think of recently would be the film version of 21 Jump Street. TV series getting remade into films (or having film sequels) have a notoriously bad reputation, and reboots of decades-old properties aren't much better. Maybe it's just a result of a double negative, but 21 Jump Street manages to be both and somehow was really funny and charming and poignant and much much better than I was expecting. In terms of pure pleasure, it was one of the best films of last year; it may not be the most artful, but it's the one I've seen the most times, and enjoyed every one! :D
