  • Favorite Comedies

    I just watched the Australian film "The Man who sued God", I heard it was a true story. It is hilarious and deep at the same time. Anyone else see it?

    Favorite Comedies,

    Notting Hill
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    Bridget Jones Diary
    To Fu Manchu with Love Julie Newmar....come to mind....I will think of more
    What is the use of intelligence when one lacks compassion for the life around oneself? And what is the point of beauty, when one's heart isn't one's loveliest feature?

      I find this hard to choose just a few of my favorites.. two that come directly to mind are Spaceballs and The Full Monty.

      My mind tends to go blank the minute I try to think of my favorite comedies while I'm sitting at my computer.

      It's not one of my "favorites" but the last movie that made me laugh almost all the way through was the Wedding Crashers.

        I like most of the ones previously listed, I'll add Amazon Women on the Moon, Airplane, A Fish Called Wanda, The Jerk, Blazing Saddles, The Big Lebowski...I could probably type all day, but I'll end it there.

            I like all of yours too. But there is one that I thought we definetly have to add. Office Space.

              Office Space is absolutely hillarious. I saw them film the scene where they smash the copier, it was quite funny! Reminds me to mention Dazed and Confused- I recall watching that one being filmed and thinking 'who the heck is Matthew McConaughey?'

                Am I the only one who enjoyed 'Dumb and Dumber'? I can watch it over and over again. For intellectual credibility, I'll also add 'The Life of Brian'. And 'The Rutles'. And 'Spinal Tap'.

                  Life of Brian is definetly another one of my all time favorites. Then again I'm also really big on anything by Monty Python.

                    Dumb and Dumber- I swear I laugh every time at the line 'Austria! Well then, g'day mate! Let's put another shrimp on the barbie!' And The Life of Brian- intellectual classic indeed, 'He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy.'

                      Grumpy old Men and Even grumpier old men movies....I think the Walter Matthau and Sophia Loren one was the most hilarious....
                      My Big Fat Greek Wedding

                      Johnny English and all the Mr. Bean movies

                      Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

                      Cool Runnings- still one of my all time favorites

                      Chocolat are a few more that I can think of..

                            I don't remember the 2 Ronnies, but I should add Red Green to my list! Oh man is he funny! That's our Saturday night laugh. The hubby and I watch him before heading off to sleep, makes a good thing to drift off too! heeheehee

                            Who thinks up his 'inventions'? LOL

                            We still get some of the old Carol Burnett show, it's on the satellite, on the tvland station. They have it chopped into half hour segments but at least show the sketches, Mama's Family, the secretary, the soap opera spoofs and the commercial spoofs. . . they are too funny but on pretty late, if I can't sleep, I'll come down and watch them and give myself a good reason to have insomnia! LOL

                              A whole new category of comedy that is amazing.
                              Carol Burnett is definetly way up there on my list. I have to say I've always perfered the ones with Tim Conway more though. Well that and when one of them would do something so funny the others would start laughing and still trying to continue the skit they were in. Other shows would have to be
                              Monty Python's flying circus
                              Red Dwarf (seasons 1-4)
                              Black Adder 1&2 are my faves but they are all great
                              Mr. Bean
                              Thin Blue Line (yeah I'm a bit of an Atkinson fan)
                              Whose Line is it anyway (the original)
                              Mork & Mindy
                              3rd Rock from the sun
                              and Coupling
