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.

I don't see how Fletch isn't on this list.

Ghostbusters was at 1 on another poll a couple years back for some reason.

I'd have to put Monty Python at the top, both Grail and Life of Brian.

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!

You're insane. The fact that it isn't in the number one slot totally invalidates the list. Best dialogue ever written for a film in ANY genre.

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.

What about Its a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. That is a favorite of mine. I think you can quibble about movies here and there, and rankings; however, the list is incomplete without Mad World.
