This has been one busy weekend - luckily, the trivia night fundraiser for my cause du jour was a complete success - everyone had a good time (although I did have to apologize for a trivia question about this movie). Anyway, taking a note from Tosy & Cosh, I'll be meme-ing on my comedy favorites. I've bolded the films I've seen.
All About Eve
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
I actually liked the first AP movie - the second had its moments, and the third's best
moment was a deleted scene
The first movie I conned my dad into taking me to see - it's true!
Bringing Up Baby
Gonna have to add this to my Netflix queue - I mean, Cary Grant and
Katherine Hepburn? Too cool.
Le diner de con
Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
I think this is the funniest movie ever made. If you do not agree, I will fight you.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Caught this on the "Special Edition" DVD. Even better than I remember
The Gold Rush
As I've said in other posts, I just don't get Chaplin.
Good Morning Vietnam
A Hard Day's Night
It's easy for forget this movie was funny, because it's the greatest rock 'n'roll
movie ever made. However, if you have never seen this movie, you are seriously
His Girl Friday
Much like The Third Man, a film that I saw in college that I cannot
get out of my bloodstream
Kind Hearts and Coronets
The Lady Killers
Monty Python's Life of Brian
A notch below Holy Grail, but pretty strong...and it's no Meaning of Life
National Lampoon's Animal House
Aka, The Movie that Lied to Me About College
The Odd Couple
Forget the Broadway hype - see the original. Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder are unsung geniuses
Never understood this movie's appeal. Sorry.
Saw this at the Tivoli about a year ago - great frickin' film.
Shaun of the Dead
A Shot in the Dark
Some Like it Hot
Saw this three months ago on DVD - well worth the reputation
There's Something About Mary
This is Spinal Tap
To Be or Not to Be
You know, I just saw this movie recently - it has a great, almost snarky
attitude towards Nazism. You could argue that Jack Benny was the Jason
Lee of his time
Les vacances de M. Hulot
When Harry Met Sally...
Withnail and I
If you choose to see one movie from this list, make sure it's Withnail and I - it's a British film with some great quotes, excellent performances, and quite frankly - you will laugh yourself sick.
