Name some movies that made you laugh.
I'll start. Rented "Tropic Thunder" last night and laughed a bunch. Robert Downey Jr was sooooo funny. Others I've watched and enjoyed recently: the annual viewing of "Christmas Vacation.". I also thought "Stepbrothers" was pretty funny. You?

2. Although it was a "stoner" flick, I thought Grandma's Boy was a riot.
Great writing, and an excellent supporting cast.

4. Talledaga Nights was *the* funniest movie I have ever seen
the jokes were constant but at an even flow. They never went cheap or crude really and the out takes show that they were just riffing it but couldn't include every joke.

Really funny and I am no Ferrell fan.

5. I am liking Will Ferrell more and more these days ...
maybe I'm just getting more juvenile as I get older, but it does seem like he manages to be "stupid-funny" without being "just stupid" if you know what I mean. Haven't seen that one yet, though, I'll check it out!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0420223 /

and not in any way a normal role for him

57. I laughed so hard at that one!
Evidently, Will Ferrell is a slowly acquired taste, but he was a riot in "Talladega", and so was John C. Reilly.

"Cal, Ricky's passing you."
"Do you think Ricky is passing me in my subconscious?"
"No, he's actually passing you. That's happening right now."

"Stepbrothers" was a major disappointment, though.

We ended up going to a local diner, alas. :-)

7. MST3K
They do some great rifs.
"The Beginning of the End." Giant man eating grasshoppers attack Chicago. The effects are so bad they have grasshoppers climbing...postcards. The guys rip into it without mercy. Probably one of the funniest things I have ever watched.

the MS3TK thing with every movie that crosses the threshold. Not surprisingly, most folks find that weird.

But if you have one ounce of individual thought, every movie is fair game. :-)

14. I was floored when mum said Steve Carroll was far better than Don Adams
In some aspects, I have to agree.

There were a couple things I didn't care for (both of which are modern movie cliches and not as much the style or tone OF the actual movie), but I would recommend it.

And I don't often care for reboots/reimagings/et ceteraings.

17. Playtime (1967)
I hadn't seen it in years and recently bought the DVD. I tried watching it but there's a scene early on between Monsieur Hulot and a modern chair that had me in tears. I had to turn it off.

19. 'Undercover Blues', 'Victor, Victoria', 'Noises Off', are three of our
favorites,that come to mind immediately (we watched 'Noises Off' last night, in fact)

I would also recommend:

any Mel Brooks movie.
any Marx Brothers movie

'Arsenic and Old Lace'
'Bringing Up Baby'
'The Philadelphia Story'
'Meet the Parents' and "Meet the Fokkers" should be seen back to back.
'Aladdin', the Disney animated version with Robin Williams.
'Animal House'
'The Great Race'
'The Mikado' (with Eric Idle as the Lord High Executioner) (actually any version will do but this one is a total hoot)
'Everything is Illuminated'

96. "Noises Off" is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
I saw in on stage before I saw the movie, and frankly, liked the stage version better...

But the movie did a great job too. :-)

Just the fight with the blind musicians was worth the price of admission.

Hot Fuzz with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with Robert Downey, Jr., and Val Kilmer. Don't be surprised if you've never heard of it--the studio spent pretty much $0 on marketing it. (I happened to see it because my dad saw a glowing review in the local paper.)

31. Look for a couple of quick, almost completely unrecognizable cameos
by Peter Jackson as Father Christmas and Cate Blanchett as Nicholas Angel's (Simon Pegg) girlfriend at the beginning of the movie. You'll know what I mean by "unrecognizable" when you see them. ;)

30. "The Court Jester", every Marx Brother film I've seen,
"The Princess Bride", and most especially, "Frankenstein meets the Spacemonster" for it's sheer, excoriating awfulness. I howled for minutes on end upon merely seeing one of the characters (who, in his failing makeup, was obviously attempting not to crack up!).

Pretty much anything MST3K'd.

That said, we played "Bad Santa" for him this year.

He almost threw up he was laughing so hard. Mom wasn't so enchanted, but hey, you do what you can. :-)

51. Oh, god, "Tootsie."
If you haven't seen this movie, you. have. not. lived.

It's very hard to believe that that film is close to thirty years old.

60. Local Hero.
That's the comedy that makes me laugh out loud. I enjoy lots of the other films mentioned in this thread, but it's the really understated situational stuff that gets me.

Great zingers in there. I also howled at parts of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" and "On Golden Pond" (can you tell I'm a Katharine Hepburn fan?? *lol*)

also, It's A Mad Mad Mad, Mad World.
the first time that I laughed over that many car chases. Ethel Merman as the most obnoxious female ever,is IMHO classic.

128. "The Ref" is so underrated.
Edited on Sun Jan-04-09 11:16 AM by CBHagman
And it ranks up there with The Lion in Winter, A Christmas Story, and The Man Who Came to Dinner among dysfunctional family Christmas films.

Best quote, hands down: Kevin Spacey's remark to his mother (Glynis Johns) about what he's giving her for Christmas next year.

104. I don't remember the name of it, but
the last movie I saw that cracked me up was about 3 middle-aged men basically on their last roadtrip before they jumped in a river to their deaths.

The funniest part was when they were all going to sleep in a hotel room and one of them said...

Bah.. nm, It was pretty vulgar. I about died laughing though. :D

It's a comedy spoof about kids growing up in fundamental Christianity.

Being that I was one of them at one time, I laughed until I cried.

127. "The Big Lebowski."
I was helpless with laughter and literally stamping my feet on the floor of the movie theater.

Another one that did that for me was Woody Allen's Everyone Says I Love You. As far as I'm concerned, any movie featuring "Hooray for Captain Spaulding" sung in French richly deserves to be seen.
