Hey folks!
just for fun and a little break from the serious stuff.
1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (more memorable skits than any movie I've ever seen)
2. Beetlejuice (loved the dinner party)
3. Blazing Saddles (sittin' 'round the campfire!)
4. Young Frankenstein (or, is that Frankenshteen!)
5. Caddy Shack (Rodney Dangerfield and a crazed Bill Murray)
6. Planes, Trains and Automobiles (John Candy was just so funny)
7. Airplane (the original) (Leslie Neilson was hilarious)
8. Animal House (crude but funny)
9. It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Bad World (the funniest movie I saw as a child)
10. Bruce Almighty (when he makes the tv news anchor speak jibberish I laughed out loud, real loud)

Of those Airplane is my favorite... while rather strange there are a few of us at work that quote one liners from Airplane all the time.  And because of some inside jokes with friends many of the events in Napolean Dynamite were biographical and hence hilarious.  While not a comedy the movie Fargo can be very amusing if your family is from North Dakota and they get very angry and start yelling (in thick North Dakotan accent) that they don't really talk like that...

Monty Python and the Holy Grail.......yes!  The most ridiculous (ie best) silly movie of all time.  Have to agree with you re John Candy's performance in TPaA.  What a brilliant comic he was.  As for Beetlejuice, I liked it , but I wouldn't rate it as highly as you do.  I mean, really, number 2?  Well, everyone has their favorite.  Which leads me to....

what about sci-fi spoofs....Galaxy Quest for one! Never give up.....never surrender!   And who can forget the Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Accross the 8th Dimension?  Gotta love those Hong Kong Cavaliers!

I don't often watch movies, so let me think... ah... of movies I've recently watched & found funny...

1. Odd Couple (the old one w. Jack Lemon & Walter Mathieu)
2.  Hopscotch (another old one w. Walter Mathieu)
3. Wedding Singer (some great lines in that one)
4.  Mall Rats (disturbing, but very very funny, a throwback to my oh-so-distant youth)
5.  Shaun of the Dead (once again, disturbing, but, man did I laugh my head off when I saw it in the theater last year)
6.  The Longest Yard (What can I say, I like Adam Sandler)
7.  Kelly's Heros - corny WWII movie w/ Clint Eastwood & Donald Sutherland
8.  M*A*S*H - 'nough said
9.  Drowning Mona - for some reason it just speaks to me, being from Upstate NY and all .  :-)
10. Arsenic and Old Lace - loved it as a kid.
also, I want to add "Young Frankenstin" & "Nuns on the Run," though we're only supposed to have 10.

- of course if you ask me about Russian movies, I can give you another 10, but no one would have a clue about what I'm talking.

That is actually one of my favorites movies of all time. I suppose it could be considered a comedy in some respects, but corny? Noooo!

Ok, will recant on the corny on Kelly's Heroes...  I use "man, lose the negative waves" all the time.  It's a very well done movie, and I've actually just realized I think I'll get it for my parents for Christmas.

Yes, the first sequel, which came out within a year of the original.  The best of the lot, I think.  The oh-so-carefully-filmed scene at the nudist colony is a scream.

I always thought that Redneck Zombies was one of the funniest movies ever made, but I suppose it's a bit of an acquired taste. It has a lot of satire that many people (from what I've seen in the few reviews online) seem to miss. It has, IMO, some of the greatest over-the-top/corny type of lines ever uttered, and in many ways I think it even surpasses Evil Dead 2 (am I allowed to say that? Smiley )ÂÂ  Anyway, I guess you have to like purposely campy comedy-horror movies to like it though. I'd like to see anyone else come up with something half as clever or funny for the budget that they had though (which, from what I've read, was something like $5,000 [they got Troma to distribute it because the producer/writer agreed to work for Troma]). Anyway, I would also include Three Amigos, Evil Dead 2, This Is Spinal Tap, and Kung Pow as other candidates for best corny comedy.

Indeed, it's plot is extremely well done, something timeless yet original, the making of a true classic. The plot itself is just so ingenious I coud go on an on about, but I digress. Anyways, I use lines from it all the time too, such as:

"If I could tell, would I be here!?"

and

"We've got logistics coming out of our ears!"

Anyways, I have read the book, VERY good (greatly influential in my political/military views), but I have yet to see the movie of it.

In no particular order....

1. The Producers (Hitler's "debut" in Springtime is drastically different depending on whether you see the original or the remake, but the newer one -- "keep it happy, keep it snappy, keep it..." -- is FAAAA-bulous.   Wink  Seriously, though.  Loved it.)
2. Bruce Almighty (Ditto the jibberish scene.  Fell.  Off.  The.  Sofa.  Laughing.)
3. Monty Python/Holy Grail (Too many scenes to name! "Bet you're gay."  "NoI'mNOT!"  Cheesy)
4. The Jerk (Just...wow.  Forrest Gump meets Steve Carrell randomness.)
5. Airplane! ("What's our vector, Victor?")
6. Good Morning, Vietnam ("It's 0800 hours; what's the Oh stand for? Oh my gosh, it's early.")
7. A Mighty Wind ("the abuse was musical in nature.")
8. My Cousin Vinnie ("Perhaps the laws of physics cease to apply in your kitchen!" and several other gems)
9. My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding (the scene where he comes in where she's at work, she rises to meet him...then gets slingshot back onto the floor because she's still wearing her phone headset.  Priceless.)
10. Plan 9 From Outer Space (unintentionally funny, but hysterical, still! "We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives."   Huh)

My last post wasn't really a list, and I didn't give 10 movies, and to make things worse I focused on horror-comedies, so let me bump this thread by giving it another shot:

1. Revenge of the Nerds
2. Redneck Zombies
3. Evil Dead 2
4. Thumbwars
5. Spaceballs
6. This is Spinal Tap
7. Three Amigos
8. Army of Darkness
9. Election

In no order of favorites and there are so many more you could list:

1.  National Lampoon's Animal House
2.  Dr. Strangelove
3.  No Time for Sergeants (with Andy Griffith and Don Knotts)
4.  Young Frankenstein
5.   Knocked Up
6.  The Blues Brothers
7.  Monty Python and the Holy Grail
8.  M.A.S.H.  (First saw this when I was 13 and had read the book - not very appropriate for a 13 yo but it was the most grown-up thing I'd ever seen)
9. Planes, Trains and Automobiles
10. Any of the Pixar movies (Bug's Life, Finding Nemo, Toy Story)
11.  Some Like it Hot

Too bad we stopped at 10 - I would have loved to add Kind Hearts and Coronets with Alec Guiness, and Grosse Pointe Blank, and Father of the Bride with Spencer Tracy, and The Birdcage or La Cage aux Falles (the French original or the Robin Williams version), The Adams Family movie, Big with Tom Hanks, and Overboard (Kurt Russel & Goldie Hawn, It's a chick thing), and on and on and on.

"Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?". Originally meant as horror, but last time I saw it I couldn't stop laughing.
Does that tell us something about it, or you?

Sean of the Dead
and
Hot Fuzz
are both pretty freakin funny.
I am the last person anyone wants to ask about movies, but Hot Fuzz was HILARIOUS. I don't usually like British comedy but I started hiccuping the first time I saw the movie. It's fun to watch it over and over again to quote it and laugh 5 minutes before a funny line, thoroughly annoying my friends who were watching it for the first time.

Another movie that was an unexpected surprise was Blades of Glory. I randomly picked it on a plane because I'm an Olympics junkie. I don't usually like that kind of comedy, but I was nearly in tears. I got shushed by the stewardess on one or two occasions because I was nearly shrieking at some points.

(Yes, I laugh-shriek and literally slap my knee during comedies. Sometimes I slap the person next to me, if I know them well enough. It's quite obnoxious, I'm sure.)

Gran Torino

Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood?  How was that funny, I thought it was quite sad.  Unless you find being a "gangsta" quite comical.. in which case, then I understand. 

I found "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry" with Adam Sandler and Kevin James to be hillarious.  I was literally laughing like every 5 minutes..

then "Grown Ups" was another good one with Adam Sandler in it..

I might have a little twisted sense of humor. I don't find most of regular comedies funny barely at all but this one was extremy hilarious even though it wasn't an actual comedy. Walt Kowalski is one of the most hilarious movie characters I've encountered.

Huh, good point. You know, if I was making a list of my favorite movies (generally) it'd make the list, yet I didn't think of it as a "funny movie". That's just crazy.

Anybody want a peanut?  Grin

EDIT--Someone mentioned Dodgeball, that's definitely a movie that would make my list if I were posting a new one today. Love that movie now.

You said the same thing yesterday. By now, there is no excuse. One more day, and you lose your Bruce Campbell fan status. Don't let this happen. The price is too great! The universe is counting on you!

It's a $2.99 rental from Amazon Instant Video. You'd have to wait for the DVD to arrive if you ordered it from Netflix.

I think the idea is that they have been out there a loooooooooooong time..Way too long. Nothing works. Hair is long. They live in the meat locker because the crew quarters are damaged. The commander is dead, sort of. They put him in suspended animation and can ask him a question or two if they really need to. He's expansive with his answers due to being dead and all..Oh and they have an Alien infestation ( Beach Ball with feet) that they cant get rid of..Precursor to "Alien" which he made later when he grew up..

Okay..one last clip:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luaRtGn2tsI&NR=1

One movie I haven't seen mentioned yet is..... The Fifth Element!

Korben Dallas: We need to find the leader, Mangalores won't fight without the leader.
Aknot: One more shot, and we start killing hostages!
Korben Dallas: That's the leader.
Aknot: Send someone to negotiate.
Fog: [as Dallas looks at him] Uh, I-I've never negotiated before.
Korben Dallas: Do you mind if I try?
Fog: No, sure, sure, sure.
[shouts]
Fog: We're sending somebody in to negotiate!
[Corben walks into the room and shoots Aknot between the eyes. As he falls, the other Mangalores drop their weapons and bow over him, keening]
Korben Dallas: Anybody else want to negotiate?
Fog: Wh-where did he learn to n-negotiate like that?

It is becoming more and more evident in this thread why few get my sense of humor.

Annie Hall

Ground breaking. Still funny.

No Seinfeld or Curb without it.

]Blades of Glory

One of the single greatest comedies of the last decade, perhaps for its genre maybe in the top 8 of all time.

Seen it a few dozen times. And I cry every time.

I always knew you had a strange sense of humor,  I find Will Farrell to be very irritating.. in most of his stuff

The movie is pure comedy platinum.

His other movies tank.

His greatest work is his Robert Goulet schtick on Conan.

I never liked any of the other Will Ferrell movies. Probably the ice skating humor is what got me. Just cracks me up EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Odd. I liked Blades of Glory, but I think Anchorman and Zoolander are easily better Ferrell films.

"Tropic Thunder". It breaks down towards the end but very very funny. I hate Ben Stiller but he is surrounded by really good actors so it works.

Oh and my wife has been trying to get me to watch" Dirty Rotten Scoundrels". I mentioned this thread and that several people listed it as top 10 funny so we watched it last night.

Someone here owes me back 90 minutes of my life.

Could have done without Jennifer Aniston, though.
