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.

One movie I don't see being mentioned is Super Troopers. That movie makes me lmao every time.

Oh and Zombieland. The scene in Bill Murrays house is one of the best all time comedy scenes. I am still laughing at them shooting him.

List doesn't include Super Troopers, Dirty Work or the Hangover, but found room for Shaun of the Dead?

Invalid list.

the list posted is okay, but some stuff was missing and some overrated. I love Ghostbusters, but #1 seems a bit high to me.

http://www.digitaldreamdoor.com/page...ie_comedy.html

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.)
4. Airplane! - (1980) (Robert Hayes, Julie Hagerty)
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)
11. Annie Hall - (1977) (Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Tony Roberts)
12. The Producers - (1968) (Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder, Dick Shawn)
13. The Gold Rush - (1925) (Charles Chaplin, Mack Swain, Tom Murray)
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)
20. A Shot In The Dark - (1964) (Peter Sellers, Elke Sommer)
21. Adam's Rib - (1949) (Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn)
22. No Time For Sergeants - (1958) (Andy Griffith, Mervyn LeRoy)
23. It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World - (1963) (Milton Berle, Jonathan Winters)
24. M*A*S*H - (1970) (Elliott Gould, Donald Sutherland, Sally Kellerman)
25. Lost In America - (1985) (Albert Brooks, Julie Hagerty, Sylvia Farrel)


Of course, I am willing to be most people don't know a good portion of these films. I am a film junkie, I've seen 95% of them.

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."

I bolded the movies I know about and think are good

thing about comedy..well, art for that matter, it's so subjective, the only true statement you can say about art is "Justin Bieber sucks"

Ign is written by a bunch of white dudes in thier early twenties. This list reflects that. I stopped at 11. This list has no merit.
