one of my favorites

I just watched this the other day. Freakin' hilarious!

#104 10 months ago

Not much has made me laugh recently like
Two and a Half Men did when it was on.

#105 10 months ago

I've seen a lot of the old classics that I love mentioned. Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, Young Frankenstein, Holy Grail, Life of Brian and so on. A couple more old classics: Take the Money and Run and Sleeper.

How about some great comedies in the last 20 years? That gets a little tougher. Tropic Thunder is definitely an all time classic. One that has really grown on me is This is the End. That movie is ridiculously funny.

Slap Shot was the best sports movie of all time and also one of my favorite comedies.

#123 10 months ago

Slap Shot is fantastic. This sports movie reminds me of Major League. Every time it is on, I stop and watch it out of respect.

#124 10 months ago
Quoted from John_I:

Hard to go wrong with Paul Newman and the Hanson Bros. And the strip-tease number at the end was a hilarious ending for a sports movie. I saw it as a kid on VHS, but then caught it again a while back and noticing they'd swapped out "Right Back Where We Started From" for some generic crap. Hopefully they've got that straightened out by now, that was a great era-specific soundtrack.

James Woods was awesome in that movie!

Slap Shot, Hollywood Knights, the Wild Life, Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Kingpin
Big Lebowski

Quoted from pinkid:

Slap Shot, Hollywood Knights, the Wild Life, Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Haven't seen Hollywood Knights in years. For the longest time, it was restricted from VHS or DVD. I think you can now rent it on Amazon, but you never see it out in the wild. A ripoff of American Grafitti, but still a fun movie. A first film for Michelle Pfieffer and Tony Danza.

#132 10 months ago

+1 for Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Still funny as shit to this day. Spicoli!

#133 10 months ago

Role models with Sean William Scott and Paul Rudd

#134 10 months ago
Quoted from Mcshaney:

Some great lines in that one. “I will hit a child.”

#135 10 months ago
Quoted from robertmee:

O' Brother where art thou (if you consider this a comedy)

Yes I would consider it a dark comedy with a mix of comedy and drama, I think the Coen's dark comedy masterpiece is Raising Arizona.

#136 10 months ago

Has anyone mentioned "The 'Burbs"? Tom Hanks when he was still going out on a limb with his roles.

Also "Nothing But Trouble", utterly insane movie with several SNL & SCTV alumni that's so bad, it's good. Well, good may be too strong a word, but it's like a train wreck that you can't help but watch, and funny in the "what the hell did I just see?" sense.

That was a crazy movie. An epic waste of a talented cast, yes, but it does have its "what the hell" moments, such as this:

#138 10 months ago

Some of these aren't flat out comedies but do have strong comedic elements:
Edgar Wright's Cornetto Trilogy
Thor: Ragnarok
Swiss Army Man
The Nice Guys
Hunt For The Wilderpeople
Boy
Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse
Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Besides that, this isn't my top favorite but Galaxy Quest that I got from a friend at Apknite tickles my funny bone in a way few other movies do so it should be here.

#139 10 months ago

Any love for British comedies? They just have a different sense of humor than many Americans. Been watching Father Ted and Vicar of Dibley lately. They're fantastic. Only problem is over there a lot of series have like 6 episodes in a season and sometimes years between seasons. The full series might only be 20 episodes. IT Crowd was also good.

Favorite comedian: Doug Stanhope, Ron White. Movies: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Used Cars, Oh Brother where art thou

i never thought anything would remove Holy Grail from my top spot, but "O Brother Where Art Thou" did it. Honorable mentions: Napoleon Dynamite and School of Rock: "Rockin' ain't no walk in the park, lady."

The "Young Ones " is hilarious.

I'll have to read up on that one. I have Black Adder, Fawlty Towers, and Little Britain on DVD but I haven't watched them yet. Reading good things about Are You Being Served too, that's probably next on my list.

Favorite comedy movie:
Return of the Pink Panther (best combo of humor offset with drama in the franchise, IMO). “Kato, your freezer ambush ploy was very good. But one thing, your fly is un duhnn.” “Try to do something about your filthy min kee.” “Here ez loooking at eyu, keed.”

Favorite comedy movie scenes:
Mirror scene in Duck Soup (I still crack up every time I see it)
Packed ship room scene in A Night at the Opera (ditto)
