    Alright, post up your fave comedy movies.

    One that always sticks out for me, and I can watch a 100 times, is Super Troopers.

    I also loved those guys in Beerfest

    Those are 2 of my favorites also!!!

    "I'm better when I'm drunk!!!"

    Those Broken Lizard guys crack me up - never really did dig Club Dread though, but the girls in that flick (esp. Jordan Ladd and that smokin' hot fitness chick!!) were worth the viewing. Others I enjoy are also:

    The Jerk
    Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
    The Blues Brothers
    Waiting...
    Bananas
    American Pie
    Saving Silverman
    Caddyshack
    Animal House
    Bruce Almighty (that newsroom scene almost gave me a heart attack!!)
    Dumb & Dumber
    Heathers (very DARK comedy)
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    and a bunch more that I can't think of because I'm tired and need to go to sleep..:biggrin1:

    Yes, I was not a Club Dread fan either, but their first movie, Puddle Cruiser, had it's moments. They are making a prequel to Super Troopers where they portray their fathers when they were troopers in the 70's.:biggrin1:

    I'd heard about Puddle Cruiser, but haven't checked it out yet - actually wasn't even aware of its existence until I did a little more research on that group.. and yes, I did hear about some sort of prequel to Super Troopers - that sounds like it'll be hilarious!! I remember seeing in the closing credits to Beer Fest that up next would be "Pot Fest", but it didn't take long to realize that it was just them fucking around.. :cool:

    really?



    The Princess Bride is probably my all-time favorite movie. and also comedic.

    Other favorites:

    Groundhog Day
    Rushmore
    Spaceballs
    Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
    Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

    Scrooged
    Ghostbusters
    Toy Story
    Toy Story 2
    A Bug's Life

    Monster's Inc
    Finding Nemo
    Ratatouille
    South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
    The Blair Witch Project
    This is Spinal Tap
    National Lampoon's Vacation
    Monty Python- Holy Grain
    Monty Python- Life of Brian
    Cannibal! the Musical

    I know there are more but that's everything I can think of right now. My brain is shutting down and I think that's a sign that I should go to bed.

    As a general rule I strongly dislike Adam Sandler, though I thought these ones weren't as heinous as his other offerings (and actually pretty funny): Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates

    I liked Superbad and The 40 Year Old Virgin a lot, not sure if they'll ever make my 'favorites' list, though.

    Puddle Cruiser needs time to grow on you, it did me. But I really do love it now, and not a bad effort by some college kids.

    But oh man, Beerfest was the shit! OMG, that movie is a classic! I know some people hate it and I never understood why.

    Good list, all favorites of mine too.

    Oh Brother Where Art Thou was perfect. I laughed from the moment George Clooney tried unsucessfully to jump on the train, and all the way through.

    BETTER OFF DEAD and the sort of sequel ONE CRAZY SUMMER

    THE REBEL--Tony Hancock's oddball effort.

    Much of Buster Keaton--THE GENERAL, SHERLOCK JR., his short films...

    A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM

    I can enjoying watching some old Laurel and Hardy silents. The one about them selling Christmas Trees in LA is a classic. BIG BUSINESS.

    If SHAUN OF THE DEAD rates as a comedy, then so does REANIMATOR. Gross and icky and funny.

    A number of comedies on these lists were dismissed as trash when they came out, now regarded as classics. ANIMAL HOUSE. Mel Brooks, CLERKS. OFFICE SPACE. BETTER OFF DEAD. --the last one was panned by Siskel and Ebert, so I had to see it. They hated it.

    FREDDY GOT FINGERED is considered odious by many, and just might be one of those movies wherein the person's taste just might veer in a direction you don't care for.

    DUMB AND DUMBER certainly is hard to watch after seeing it thrice, and gets less enjoyable. It's a good collection of bits.

    CHRISTMAS STORY anyone? This got panned when it came out. I guess critics were reviewing the director's resume' which included CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS and PORKY'S and BLACK CHRISTMAS.
