My Personal Top 50 Comedy Films: 46 and 45

Updated on April 17, 2013

46. Me, Myself, and Irene

A state trooper from Rhode island who (sometimes) goes by the name of Charlie Baileygates (Jim Carrey) lives a somewhat sedated and restricted life. Every situation he finds himself in, he is a total and complete pushover. So his choice of profession is a strange one.

Charlie also has a wife. And like stated before, he is a pushover in every relationship, this one is no different.

Layla Baileygates (Traylor Howard) is somewhat.. loose. This is shown on her wedding day when she falls for another man, a limo driver called Shonté (Tony Cox) and most definitely on the day she gives birth to triplets who have clearly come from Shonté and not Charlie.

After a few years of pretending everything is fine and all right, when knowing quite the opposite, Charlie conceives his alter ego, Hank Evans. Hank Evans is the absolute opposite of Charlie Baileygates in every way. The catalyst for this happening was many things but mainly a drunken friend pretty much stating the truth in a way that cannot be denied and also, of course, Charlie's wife, Layla leaving him for Shonté.

However, Charlie's feelings fermented within himself over the years. A very nice guy who avoided confrontation at any cost was about to give birth and become an absolute confrontation junkie.

45. Groundhog Day

Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is an egotistical meteorologist who has quite a grandiose opionon of himself. He finds himself in a town called Punxsutawney covering the Groundhog's winter predictions. With him are cameraman Larry (Chris Elliott) and show producer, Rita (Andie MacDowell)

The relationship between the three is purely work related. Larry and Phil clearly do not get on. Phil sees Larry as a lot lower than himself. Phil has a mild attraction to Rita but it is not recognized as he is far more interested in himself to notice her.

Everything of course changes when Phil has to keep reliving the same day, February 2nd, Groundhog day, over and over and over again. Everything happens over and over again, other peoples actions that is.

First off, and realistically so, when discovering what is happening, Phil uses the new found phenomena to get to know women and then return the next day to seduce them, or rob a bank once he knows the pattern of the bank staff. Phil also steals the Groundhog on one day.

Then, after killing himself a few times and still returning. He has a heart to heart with Rita. He tells her everything that has been happening to him. From that moment on, he has a new task. He means to be a better nicer person who helps others and at the same time enriching himself in the circumstances in which he has been trapped.

Along the way of course, he learns something new about Rita each day and falls in love with her and longs to have one perfect day with her.
