    Whoever put this list together has a weird sense of humor. Except for a handful TRULY good ones, this list blows. Netflix is really good at estimating my taste, and most of these would get one or two stars (out of 5) from me.

    Blazing Saddles….funniest movie of ALL TIME! And yet not on the list? The funniest thing is this list….it’s a joke!

    You’re missing one from the classics: Bringing up Baby…hilarious film

    My top-ten list definitely includes: “Dumb and Dumber”; “Tommy Boy”; “Liar Liar”; “My Cousin Vinny” and “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”. Additional possibilities include: “Naked Gun”; “Airplane” and “Idiocracy”. Still others like “Trading Places”; “Coming to America”; “Uncle Buck” and “Being There” aren’t necessarily a laugh-a-minute but IMO comedy is more than just making people laugh hysterically. Sometimes a good comedy is pure genius on some level that also happens to make you laugh. I still can’t believe that “Being There”–which I only recently discovered–had evaded my radar all these years… Brilliant!

    Lol I cant believe GALAXY QUEST made this list…. Ive NEVER heard anyone bring this movie up when we are talking about the funniest.

    Funniest movie I have ever seen was What’s Up Doc with Barbra Streisand , Ryan O’Neal and Madelynn Kahn….from beginning to end, knee slapping, side splitting laughter….my second funniest  would be Rat Race….again, laughter from beginning to end.

      Dead on with What’s Up Doc. Most people have never heard of this film. One of my top five comedies.

    This list is seriously flawed and useless because it does not include Animal House (1978) — considered one of the funniest movies ever created.  WTF!  In 2001, the United States Library of Congress deemed the Animal House culturally significant and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

    Great list but you missed a couple like “Bringing up Baby”(Katherin Hepburn),”Arsenic and Old Lace”(Cary Grant), and “Fast and Loose”(Rosalind Russle).

      Agreed. If you liked Bringing Up Baby, watch What’s Up Doc some time. The director used Brining Up Baby as his inspiration and it’s every bit as good.

    ye why is most of the movies from the 30s 40s. Who writes these thing, surely there is great comedys out there more recent, i mean i’m sure these movies from the 30s etc are great but its
     a very narrow minded listing

    You left out, according to Billy Crystal and me,’ It’s a Gift’ — the funniest American movie of all time.

    The Graduate – really that is a comedy ??? Not what my Mom thought – I couldn’t see until. I was married. I don’t recall once laughing.

    My Man Godfrey – loved it.

    Saw most of these movies over the years – didn’t know some where comedies. They may had a few light moments. but am looking for movies that made me laugh.

    Jack Lemon was in a number of comedies.

    I didn’t see The Court Jester in the list in, which Danny Kaye sings, dances, and is absolutely hilarious.  Saw this first run in a theater and it still wears well.

    Gee, I can’t wait to drive my model-T down to the video store and rent these on Beta.  You can only watch so much Milton Berle on the Dumont, dad gummit.

    Some great ones on the list- but any list without Caddy
    Shack, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, or Animal House is not a complete
    list.

      At least half those movies you mention are on the list. Generation ADD strikes again; giving your opinion on something you really have no clue about and are too lazy to properly research.

    This was written in ’03-what, 1903? God lord, Ive seen many of these and yes, they are enjoyable, like The Graduate, but not necessarily funny, or known as a great COMEDY-but come on-as Coach Ditka would say-get some comedies since the advent of SOUND! No The Blues Brothers? Blazing Saddles? Home Alone? Any early Mel Brooks/Woody Allen movies?And of course, the Gone with The Wind of comedies, Animal House, NOT even on this list? And that was made in 78, so I figured it was old enough for Grandpa Moses, I mean Stefan Kanfer,  to have seen it, yes? But this was in Reders Digest, and lest face it, whens the last time anyones read this? I didnt even know it was still being published!

    Too bad the comments below are by people who didn’t figure out the list was probably made in 2003. But terrific you got Big Deal on Madonna Street as the sole foreign film. But you are missing some really basic modern and old comedies: Blazing Saddles (how come Silver Streak is here and not Blazing Saddles?), Modern Times, A Night at the Opera, Austin Power, International Man of Mystery, Mon Oncle, King of Hearts, The Ladykillers (original is better than the remake) and La Cage Aux Folles.
