Best Comedy Film Of All Time?

Recommended Posts

"The Life of Brian" is rather good.

"This is Spinal Tap" is rather good too!

I welcome your suggestions. :blink:

I like Sir Henry at Rawlinson End and Carry on Behind, but you've already named the best IMHO - This is Spinal Tap.

"That's just nit-picking."

"Sir Henry" is certainly a fascinating film! Lost on the young! :wacko: But smashing anyway!

I suspect one of those two or Airplane is going to top most lists. I am quite fond of The Producers though.

A trickier, impo, question is which is the funniest/best Carry On film? I'm tempted to go for Screaming but have uncertainties.

Nice choice! The remake was crap, and I put it in a charity shop!

It's only really popular IME with people who already like Carry Ons and see it as an attempt at proper film making.

People who aren't fans of Carry On expect and want lots of "Matron!" type obvious lines.

That wasn't very charitable of you, should have burned the f**ker.

Just replayed the song and dance number from the original, still funny as

Pushing fifty years old and I still marvel that it was ever made.

Good one, I was about to mention that too.

I like to add 'Office Space'.

Also, 'Cape Fear', not supposed to be funny though Robert De Niro has me in stiches.

Blazing Saddles

Airplane

No idea why Shaun of the Dead appears high up the British comedy lists.

I do love Trading Places but I'm reluctant to put it under this category.

Best Carry on is Camping IMO. My wife reckons the same or Doctor.

Kingpin is a good shout, along with Me, Myself & Irene. Dr Strangelove deserves an honourable mention as well.

As for Carry on..... up the Khyber!

Trading Places imho is a Christmas movie - and a great one at that.

It is very funny, I just have to watch it over the Christmas period for full effect

I especially like the Pin name, as I believe Mr Mahoney does!

I like "Bananas" as Woody's finest!

Kingpin and Carry on Camping are both excellent choices. They feature two of my favourite sophisticated jokes about bulls...

"What's a nice girl like you doing with an old cow?"
"I'm taking her to the bull"
"Couldn't your father do that?"
"No, it has to be the bull!!"

Dumb and Dumber is excellent.

A hidden gen is Kung Pow. Thought it was genius but have to watch it a few times to 'get it'.
