Not for everybody, and not for kids, but I thought this was pretty funny.
I loved that movie 30 years ago but I don't think it aged well.
I watched it in 2002 and found it much less enchanting than back in the 80s:
Real Genius (1985)
The first three that came to mind:
Chuck and Buck
Also: I agree that Happiness was really funny .
I don't have only one...I have many. ; )
Funny that, in 30 years I did not age so well either!
I will give you a drumroll.............
Seriously, If you have the time I'd love to hear of a few!
Peter Sellers & Elke Sommer - A Shot In The Dark
Any Marx Bros or Chaplin
Jap cast - What's Up Tiger Lily
Woody & Diane - Sleeper
Wilder , Feldman , Boyle etc - Young Frankenstein
Monty Python - And Now For Something Completely Different
I saw all of these except MB & CC on their 1st run in the theaters & each film had the entire place rolling with laughter
Ok, fine...: )
It's A Gift
Some Like It Hot
Arsenic & Old Lace
No Time For Sergeants
Murder He Says
The Egg & I
Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein
and many, many others up until 2018!
i love a good comedy, but i don't think anything's made me laugh as hard as Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.
This is Spinal Tap
The King of Comedy
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Bullets Over Broadway
Waiting For Guffman
Best In Show
I've never laughed at anything as much as I laughed at the first 40 minutes of the South Park movie. Borat also springs to mind.
Funny is hard to hold on to. I thought The Big Lebowksi was one of the funniest movies Id ever seen. Watched it the other night after not seeing it for many years. Didnt laugh once. Maybe a giggle.
Jim Carrey could make me laugh back in the day. Now, nothing.
Probably "Being There" still makes me still laugh consistently.
Comedy outdates pretty fast.
My Favorite Year is an awesome film! it is criminally underrated
had to tackle this and as expected most of mine have been mentioned-Trading Places/Stripes/Young Frankenstein/Slap Shot/Blazing Saddles/Beverly Hills Cop/Princess Bride
so here are a few unmentioned so far that I think are damn funny-
Broadcast News(Albert Brooks on camera is all time funny scene)
Grosse Pointe Blank
Caddyshack(not mentioned after 7 pages?)
As Good As It Gets (Nicholson!)
Waking Ned Devine
The Full Monty
Death At A Funeral(UK version)
wife loves-4 Weddings and A Funeral & Casual Sex & My Big Fat Greek Wedding
last, the original Finding Nemo is the funniest Pixar out there
I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Stripes, Trading Places and A Fish Called Wanda. Oh, and Midnight Run too.
I've already posted, but a couple I've only seen lately for the first time that had me laughing a lot were The Great Race, from 1965, with Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood, and The Court Jester, from 1955 or 1956, with Danny Kaye and Glynis Johns. Another enjoyable movie with many humorous moments is The Parent Trap, from 1961, with Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara and Brian Keith. That one I had seen at the movies when I was six years old, but not again until 2018.
the rebel (1960)
The biggest laugh (causing actual tears) I’ve had in recent memory was Gambit (2012). It’s an obscure remake of a 60s Michael Caine movie with a Coen Brothers screenplay. They probably wrote it ten years before it got made as I remember reading about it in a development hell magazine article ten or so years before the film got made. The film is good and slyly clever and inventive. All the sex farce stuff at the hotel in the middle of the film is very funny. SPOILER: I was crying with laughter when Colin Firth is caught in the hotel room by the hotel manager, much to the confusion of the woman in the room who had no idea he was there. I’m even chuckling just thinking about it right now.
The film is sometimes hilarious and far, far better than its non-reputation would indicate.
Gambit (2012 film) - Wikipedia
Give it a shot. It’s been on UK Netflix for years and it’s probably still there right now.
Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid is a favorite.
Recently saw and loved The Lonely Guy.
Also died a couple times during my 7th viewing of Kung Pow: Enter The Fist
I hear they’re working on What We Do In The Moonlight. The story is centered around the ware wolves
