  1. I’ll show my age here…Neither of the Jump Street movies would be on my list. Airplane without a doubt is a top 5 of all-time…Blazing Saddles, Slapshot (I know it’s hockey and no one watches hockey) and Midnight Run would be added to my list. Thanks for sharing your list.

      You got it! I think 21 and 22 Jump Street certainly slant towards a more juvenile state of mind lol

  2. What? No Blues Brothers? No This Is Spinal Tap? And Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Little Miss Sunshine, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz?

    My favorite comedy of all time is Duck Soup (1939). Saw it when I was 10 years old and have never laughed so hard.

      Ahh the Marx Brothers! I can’t remember if I’ve seen that one or not…

        If you see just one, Duck Soup is the way to go. It’s a quick sit at 68 minutes but is full of so much set pieces and jokes it feels like an epic. It also came out before the Hayes Code was put in place so they are able to get away with some surprisingly raunchy humor. Groucho’s character is very much the inspiration for the ‘lovable jerk’ trope that you see a lot in Bill Murray’s characters. Plus Groucho went on to be a huge fan of Alice Cooper, so that’s pretty awesome.

        I’ll have to take a look at it!

  4. I think for favorite comedy I have to go with Roger Rabbit! Hilarious!

  5. Slightly out of step with this list, but a film I found hilarious – the squid and the whale. There is also no excuse for Airplane not being no.1. Have you seen Top Secret!?

  6. I find myself agreeing with everything but the top two. Caddyshack is one of those that I LIKE it, but it’s not THAT funny to me. And I still just don’t know what everybody else is seeing in Anchorman that I’m not. I think I’m broken or something, because I seem to be the only person alive that doesn’t like that movie. It just isn’t funny to me at all. It’s just dumb. I mean Step Brothers is DUMB but it’s FUNNY and dumb. No idea what is wired wrong in my brain when it comes to Anchorman.

    Otherwise, some of my favorite comedies are on this list, so I totally think it’s a pretty great one. Nice job.

    I know that I’m a lot older than you but I think one of the top Zany comedies is “It’s a Mad Mad Mad World”. Have you ever seen it.
