Funny Movies

My wife has been picking up movies at the library, on top of our Netflix picks. She recently brought home Young Frankenstein and after watching it again, I've decided it has to be one of the funnier movies I've ever seen. So I'm looking at trying to compile a list of funny movies and to watch them, mostly again. Here are some of my favorite comedies, as they say, in no particular order:

  • Young Frankenstein
  • Napoleon Dynamite
  • What's Up, Doc?
  • The Jerk
  • Planes, Trains and Automobiles
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • Blazing Saddles
  • Meet the Parents
  • The Pink Panther movies (Peter Sellers)

It's your turn. I want help. Cough 'em up.

Though it's crass, I liked Something about Mary. And I know you didn't mean to leave out Princess Bride. This is Spinal Tap. Best in Show.
Monty Python's Holy Grail. Elf. Parenthood. She's Having a Baby.

Funny movies lots of people haven't seen:

Bottle Rocket
Brain Donors
The Stupids (warning: it's stupid)
The Castle (australian funny)
Waiting for Guffman
Top Secret! (I think this is early Zucker Bros.)
Intolerable Cruelty
Wag the Dog
MST3K The Movie

And Ghost Town, Ricky Gervais' first hollywood work was actually a good introduction to his talents.

Thanks for all the suggestions. They ought to keep me laughing for a while. Or wondering what strange senses of humor my friends have. : )

Young Frankenstein is one of my favourite shows. I know all the words by heart so it was nice to remember again in your post. Thanks for bringing back some fond memories about Young Frankenstein . This weekend I’m going to visit my sister and we get pretty good tickets to attend it again so I'll be analyzing as well as enjoying that show. Here:
I know that I will enjoy every blessed minute of it!
