The Darwin Awards is a 2006 black comedy that also includes aspects of adventure and romance. Michael Burrows (Joseph Fiennes) is a dedicated detective who finds his career floundering because of his hematophobia, or an inability to see blood without fainting. Burrows changes his life plans and manages to find a job working with an insurance company, using his sleuthing skills to investigate unusual crimes and find people who might accidentally cause their own deaths due to dangerous levels of stupidity. Burrows is partnered with the beautiful, smart and talented Siri Taylor (Winona Ryder), and together the unlikely pair travel the globe, trying to get to the bottom of one comically disastrous crime scene after another. As they work together, Burrows and Taylor start developing feelings for one another. But elements from Burrows' unfortunate past start reappearing, and the detective must face his own fears and acknowledge the risks that exist in everyone's life. The star-studded cameos make this dark romantic comedy come alive with humor.moreless
