Lots to choose from but I'm curious to see some other lists. I know there are subcategories like Slap Stick Comedy, Romantic Comedy, etc. I like some of those okay but the pure comedy's are my favorites.

I ranked mine from most favorite on down. The top 4 I highly enjoy more then the rest. My top 4 had me rolling from start to finish.



Young Frankenstein
Happy Gilmore
The Birdcage
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Caddyshack
The Jerk
Tommy Boy
Office Space
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
The 40 Year Old Virgin
Dodgeball

My list would include SEVERAL movies already listed, but one movie that HASN'T been mentioned is among my favorite comedies of all time. Spies Like Us is a very underrated movie...

the reason no one mentioned Harlem Nights is because, outside of the chick kicking Eddie's ass in the alley and the opening card playing scene, the movie isn't that funny.

notice no one else has $hit on anyones picks ? ... cause these are opinions ...

But since we are going there. Having Idiocracy in your list is very telling.
Besides Beverly Hills Cop , the Kevin Smith flicks and Raising Arizona I hated about all those .

the big lebowski hated didn't make it through
office space hated didn't make it through
midnight run Never even heard of it and had to google it.
beverly hills cop Would make my comic top 15 probably
tropic thunder Didn't see it cause it didn't look like something I'd like
shaun of the dead Didn't see it cause it didn't look like something I'd like
grosse point blank Didn't see it cause it didn't look like something I'd like
harold and kumar go to white castle Seen it , It was average at best
Dogma Would make my comic top 15 probably
clerks Would make my comic top 15 probably
raising arizona Would make my comic top 15 probably
40 year old virgin hated didn't make it through
idiocracy hated didn't make it through
super troopers hated didn't make it through
bill and ted's excellent adventure Liked , one of my teen years favs ... But wouldn't make any list ..



Opinion tho ,one that I had previously kept to myself when I read your list...

Harlem Nights wouldn't make my all time top 25 or anything ... But Comedies only it would probably crack MY top 15 A ton of funny stuff in it AND EVERYTHING Redd Foxx says in it kills me...


And 0 hard feelings Bman4ever , me and you are normally on the same page and get along and I always read your post just to look at your av

but it annoys me when someone judges taste and speaks of their own like it's fact in one of these type threads and is why so many lurk or never share ...



moving on ...

Midnight Run is a great film but I never really thought of it as a comedy...sure it had funny moments in it, but calling it a comedy would be like calling Goodfellas a comedy, somehow it just doesn't work.

I never got the whole Office Space thing either....it's just one of those films that everyone and their brother seems to love (like say.. Fight Club) that I didn't find either all that funny or enjoyable. Just me I guess or it could just be that I find John C. McGinley a very unfunny man who drives me up the wall. Oh well....
