**Movies with Sign Language (ASL)?**

Lately I've been interested in ASL. Just wondering if there is any movies off the top of anyone's head that has bits or pieces of sign language in it?


Thanks.

IIRC, one of the sketches in Kentucky Fried Movie has some sign language. I assume it was "real" sign language.

Four Weddings and a Funeral has a character that signs, but I don't know if it's ASL.

Orphan (2009) has a Deaf character, and there's a bit of sign language used by a good chunk of the main characters. That was one of my favorite things about this movie. There's a couple you can watch instantly on Netflix, too: "And Your Name is Jonah" and "Through Deaf Eyes."
