The Big Lebowski = over-rated
National Lampoon's Vacation = not funny at all. any movie with Chevy Chase as the lead is not funny at all.
Annie Hall = are you kidding me? blech.

the rest of the list is ok. not sure they are the 25 best of all time, but they're all worth an occassional view i suppose, though i've never had any interest in seeing the 40 Year Old Bob or Some Like it Hot.

Not to burst your bubble but I'm pretty sure an opinion or preference for a favorite comedy can be "wrong". The National Lampoons franchise is rather popular too...

I love Steve Martin buy never liked the Jerk, always thought LA story was funnier and a better film. It's just an opinion though dude!

Annie Hall is a crappy Woody Allen "neurotic NYC jew dates WASP chick" comedy from the mid 70's. it's the kind of film NYC critics like. that's about it. it's not that Woody Allen couldn't occasionally be funny, but his schtick wears thin outside of NYC.

i can't stand Chevy Chase. he's tolerable in Caddyshack because he's a minor character, but he's not funny. he's never been funny. his castmates on SNL couldn't stand him. he's an arrogant prick.

i don't see much humor in the The Big Lebowski. i know that college-aged stoners from the 90's remember the film fondly, but watch it sober and it's not really funny.

First of all, GHostbusters is not a comedy but a horror flick that no 4 year old should ever watch. The list had Ferris Bueller on there but no Revenge of the Nerds or My Cousin Vinny. Those are two great movies with some great laughs. Ferris Bueller is good but there wasnt that many bust out loud moments like ROTN and Vinny. Hell, Meet the Parents had some great scenes worthy of top 25. When you start a list off and have Animal House at the bottom of the best, something is wrong.

if you know some of the inside jokes, Bowfinger is a very cleverly disguised comedy taking some pot shots at certain hollywood people and institutions.

i think Swingers, "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels", Snatch, and Get Shorty are also funny "recent" movies deserving of some mention on a listing of good comedies are well. Cary Grant also made a handful of funny films back in the day. one or two early Jerry Lewis films should be considered, though most of his stuff is cringe-inducing to me. Sleeper is better than Annie Hall. there's no mention of Bob Hope, the Marx Bros., or the 3 Stooges on this listing. really, alot of good films have been left off.

I think American beauty should be added. I know it's a Dark Comedy/drama but I think the roll Kevin Spacey plays is classic.

The Brad since is classic.

I was thinking that it should have been top 5 easily. Just about everything in that movie is hilarious.

That movie basically re-directed comedy production.

Also, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation should have been #1. Though it is a Christmas movie, its probably one of the most universally beloved comedies of all time. A Christmas Story too.

that's another list, 100 plus greatest movies of all time, some overlap with the original, some are different and I think I might agree with more of this one (I am only pasting the top 25, but there are lot more, I would suggest looking at it to find your favorites, some are in there).

1. Duck Soup - (1933) (Marx Brothers)
2. Some Like It Hot - (1959) (Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe)
3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail - (1975) (Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, Eric Idle, etc.)

5. "Dr. Strangelove" - (1964) (Peter Sellers, George C. Scott)
6. Blazing Saddles - (1974) (Mel Brooks, Gene Wilder)
7. What's Up, Doc? - (1972) (Barbra Striesand, Ryan O'Neil)
8. National Lampoon's Animal House - (1978) (John Belushi, Tim Matheson)
9. A Night At The Opera - (1935) (Marx Brothers)
10. The Odd Couple - (1968) (Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau)

14. Tootsie - (1982) (Dustin Hoffman, Jessica Lange, Bill Murray)
15. Young Frankenstein - (1974) (Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman, Peter Boyle)
16. Bringing Up Baby - (1938) (Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn)
17. Arthur - (1981) (Dudley Moore, Liza Minnelli)
18. Modern Times - (1933) (Charles Chaplin, Paulette Goddard, Henry Bergman)
19. Take The Money And Run - (1969) (Woody Allen, Janet Margolin)

24. M*A*S*H - (1970) (Elliott Gould, Donald Sutherland, Sally Kellerman)
25. Lost In America - (1985) (Albert Brooks, Julie Hagerty, Sylvia Farrel)

Interesting. I thought I was the only one who really liked it's a mad, mad, mad world. It's not really that funny a movie unless you get some of the inside gags. Who'd have thought who the villan turned out to be .... That's just crazy.

I never really liked Woody Allen, but I realize it was just lost on me. I thought Martin and Lewis were funnier than Abbot and Costello, but Lewis as a solo act was lost on me too.

I thought Python's Meaning of Life was really their pinnacle, but the whole Arthur thing is made for parody ... as it was probably a myth that was unintentional parody as well. Interesting list with the "old stuff."
