    I think that depends on one's sense of humor, it's different for everybody.
    I like:
    Borat
    Monty Python movies
    Fawlty Towers (not a movie but series)
    Road Trip
    Ace Ventura (and other Jim Carrey movies)

    and many many more

    Has anyone seen The Heartbreak Kid ? It's a Ben Stiller movie that came out recently. Shit was hilarious.

    I usually say that my favorite comedies are older Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, The Producers) and ZAZ (Airplane, The Naked Gun)...

    Others I like:

    Hairspray (the original; haven't seen the remake yet but it actually looked good in the previews)

    Silent comedies (especially Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd)

    Mae West movies (because I just love her! She was way ahead of her time, and love her quotes!)

    Pink Panther movies

    There are many others as well...

    I have that one. I think that it was a bit too much. That was the only Farrelley Brothers movie I didn't like.

    Porky's wasn't really funny. I saw that movie with my parents at the movie theater. I think my dad wanted to see that one. My mom doesn't have a sense of humor...and it really seemed like one of the movies my Dad's friends talked him into seeing.

    I liked the movie. I just didn't find it funny.

    A lot of the movies mentioned so far - more the older ones a la Brooks and Python - never did find Sandler funny... I'm surprised not to see Zoolander though, that movie is funny as fuck! I can tell, because I laughed even more the 2nd time.

    My favourite funny movie though is Dark Star (IMDB). One of John Carpenter's earliest efforts - it's a sci-fi flick and really low budget (their pet alien is a giant painted beachball with feet stuck on) - this adds to the humour.

    The premise is a deep space mission destroying unstable planets in colonisable star systems - the 4 man crew are, understandably, quite mad. Then one of their intelligent bombs malfunctions.

    "Don't give me any of that intelligent life crap, just give me something I can blow up" is one of my favourite lines from the movie :biggrin1:

    What? No one mentioned Galaxy Quest, the wonderful Star Trek spoof with Tim Allen as the self-centered captain who steals the stage (and chews the scenery) at the sci-fi conventions?

    NCbear (who loved watching the ship back out of the docking area, scraping its side the whole way :biggrin1:, and who also loved watching Sigourney Weaver act like a bimbo, which she so obviously isn't :tongue:)
