    I think I'll choose Young Frankenstein. It had a great combination of wit and slapstick, in addition to some memorable one-liners!

      (Looking at the door) "What Big Knockers!"

        Geez...Now this WAS FUNNY.  Thanks for reminding me of this movie, as one of my ex-co-workers borrowed this DVD and has yet to give it back!

        I fanned you by the way big_smile

      Freeze you diseased Rhinoceros pizzle!

      So you see, my son, there is a very fine line between love and nausea.

      Just let your Soul Glo!

    Maybe it was just the mood I was in when I watched it, but The End (with Burt Reynolds) was one that had me and my husband laughing all through it, and "hysterically" a couple of times.

    The Chevy Chase Vacation movies (especially the first one) were also funny, I thought.

    It's hard to pick one.  I guess mine would be The Jerk with Steve Martin.

    Probably Groundhog Day with Bill Murray (it was the first one that popped in my head). Also, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, (how many times!?), World. Every time I think about Jonathan Winters and the giant W, it gets at least a smile....

    The Hangover, when Mike Tyson started singing, I laughed so much I had tears rolling down my face.

    Clifford, with Martin Short


    Coming to America and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels are classic also.

    Zoolander - Ben Stiller (Zoolander) & Owen Wilson (Derek). Crazy funny movie. Just want to share these lines from this movie:

    Matilda: Every day after school I would come home and you know, I'd flip through the pages of my mom's Vogue and Glamour and I'd just look at these women .. These perfect, beautiful � just unbelievable skinny women. I just couldn't - Oh, I just couldn't understand why I didn't look like them. I just didn't get it. So um... so I became--

    Hansel: What?

    Matilda: Bulimic.

    Zoolander: You can read minds?

    Zoolander: Oh, snap!!

    Derek: Listen Matil, I've been thinking a lot about that bulimia thing. And I want you to know I understand where you're coming from. I feel really bad that good-looking people like us made you throw up and feel bad about yourself. For serious.

    There are so many!  We used to have that movie "Freeway" with Reese Witherspoon on VHS, and we would back it up and watch the courtroom scene when Bob walks in to the courtroom again and again and again...it was so hilarious!

    More recently, I really liked that "Redneck Comedy Tour Movie" or whatever it was called.  Ron White is my favorite!

    Some great films mentioned here! I loved Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,especially the scene where Rupreck asks if he can go to the bathroom.

    The Nutty Professor.  I laughed so hard I nearly peed in my pants.

    I would have to say Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It's funnier each time I see it!

    You can't go wrong with Monty Python's Life of Brian and Holy Grail.

    Airplane! is another great one.  And though its not considered one of Leslie Neilsen's best, I think Spy Hard is hilarious at times.  Naked Gun, as well.  That man has looked 70 for the past 50 years, which in itself is comedic gold.

    The Life Aquatic is also one of the funniest, though its more dramatic moments also possess a great deal of emotional sincerity.  Great movie.

    I would have tp say "Office Space" and "Borat". Both movies make me laugh everytime I see them!

    1. theageofcake profile image61

      I can't believe I forgot Borat - a strong contender for the best comedy of the past 5 years.
