Highest Grossing...Adjusted

I just looked at the list of the 25 Highest Grossing High School Comedies and I had a problem with the #1 movie, as I do not feel that it belongs in this list.
(I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I'd be curious to know if anyone agrees with me.)
Anyway - While a "Highest Grossing" list is interesting and all, it sometimes makes the items lower on the list inferior to those higher up because they often include things from 25-35 years ago. I would like to see a list like that, but where the $$ are adjusted to the current market to maybe see which grossed...better?

Pete: I agree with you that the selection is unusual. The #1 film on the list doesn't even have "Comedy" among its listed genres.

My recommendation would be for you to create a new list with the films' box office grosses adjusted for inflation, as that would provide a different perspective on the relative success of the films.

(For those who haven't seen the list being referred to, it's at http://showtime.imdb.com/list/ls020445451/#1.)
