Your Favorite Comedy Movie...





ganesh
Let us use this thread to identify everyone's favourite English comedy movie (can be from any era!), so that comedy movie lovers can catch up on what they might have missed.

( I searched for such a thread -- comedy, specifically, -- but no results turned up.. Pretty surprising since I expected many comedy movie aficionados in this forum Smile )

Let me kick off this thread with my favorite English comedy movie.

My vote goes to What's Up Doc? (1972)

Here is the Wikipedia entry for the film : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What%27s_Up%2C_Doc%3F_%281972_film%29

The nice thing about the film is that the sequence of events get funnier as the movie progresses. When I watched the movie for the first time, half way into the film, I found myself laughing so hard that I ended up thinking that the director could never possibly match up to the laughter quotient in the later part of the film. I was pleasantly surprised when the climatic portions turned out to be even funnier! In short, the best comedy movie that I have ever seen!

The two most recent hits are Hot Fuzz and Tristram Shandy: A ****** and Bull Story.

Yes, I realize both are British, but no a comedy need not be British to be brilliant. That is how we got Caddyshack.

Hot Fuzz is a simply amazing parody ridiculing all crazy cop films from Point Break to Bad Boys. An emphasis is put on the absurdity of how many fire arms exist and the lack of paperwork.

A pure joy.

As for Tristram Shandy: this film is perhaps the most brilliant comedy in years. It aptly follows the lines of a Charlie Kaufman existential film while feeling like a full length episode of the BBC's The Office.

Brydon and Coogan are brilliant.

Oh but again, let's not forget Caddyshack.

Murray, Dangerfield and Chase. Enough said.

What about feature-length standup routines on DVD?

But as far as movies go... Well... That's a hard call since I'm quite picky and don't find sexualised or toilet humour very funny most of the time.

Of the top of my head though, I did enjoy Happy Gilmore and The Whole Nine Yards and I'm not really a fan of Sandler.

English comedies : Bridget Jones' Diary rules the roost for me. Colin Firth and Hugh Grant are comic genius's

Failing that... ANY comedy with either of those gents in would hands down (for me... :=]) win

That nude wrestling scene! Oh god!!! I was literraly laughing my a** out.
Another great scene is in the beginning. Borat goes and smootches a gal. And then he says "This is my sister. No 4 prostitute in all of Kazaksthan".
Harold and Kumar was also good and its sequel is coming soon.

I liked the first ace ventura a lot. Nowadays though I don't find it funny.
Insanity
The Rush Hour series are an awesome combination of comedy and action, so it's one of my favorites.
