View Full Version : Funniest movie
04-29-2003, 07:09 AM
As I sit here not wanting to get ready to go on a field trip with 45 kindergarten kids, I was trying to think of something that would pick me up. I got to thinking about "Deuce Bigalow", where he dances for the cop's wife and she snaps his speedos. Makes me laugh so hard I have tears streaming from my face and my gut hurts from laughing so hard. Anyone else have a favorite funny movie or part of a movie?

Karatemom - one of the funniest movies I ever saw was the first Porky's movie. Sure it was tasteless and exploitative but it was funny nonetheless. When that guy sticks his weenie through the hole in the wall, and that fat ugly gym teacher grabs hold and starts to yank, I had tears in my eyes. All the other porkys were mediocre at best. The first American Pie was good as well.
I can't think, it's too early.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High
It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World
Anything with Jim Belushi
Anything else with Chris Tucker
Nothing funnier all the way through. Although IME women do not find that the fate of the planet resting on the psychology of sexually repressed/dysfunctional men is as funny as men seem to think. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif No, it's not Caddyshack, but how can you beat the Mine Shaft Gap scene? Strangelove is true comedy.

All you young kids are dating yourselves by listing all these new releases. I come from a time when they made REAL movies ... or is that REEL movies.
My all time favorite funny movie (just release recently on DVD) is Cat Ballou staring Jane Fonda and Lee Marvin. Marvin's drunken gunfighter is just hilarious.
Cat's father, Frankie Ballou has been shot and they have him layed out in his coffin with candles burning.
Kid Shelleen (Marvin) comes staggering in to the funeral, bombed out of his mind. Someone asks him "can't you see what's going on here?". Sheleen says, "Oh Yeah" and proceeds to sing Happy Birthday to Frankie and then blows out all the candles. Had me on the floor.
Later there is a scene with Kid Shelleen and his horse, both drunk, leaning up against a building.
If you've never seen it, rent it.
Mickey Callan (West side story) along with Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye had supporting roles.
Thought for the day.
Opinions are like toothbrushes. Everyone has one so there is no need to share.
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Wally covered a lot of my faves.
Here's some more "must watch" on my list:
Midnight Run - James Grodin and DeNiro are just hilarious!
Running Scared - "Oh Mother, may I have some of those petite marshmallows in my hot chocolate?"

I agree with you Dave about those older movies. Back then, without special effects technology , the comedic actor had to rely solely on his own talent to get across to the viewer.
Carey Grant was one of my fav. comedic actors. He was great in "Arsenic and Old Lace" and with Rosiland Russell in "His Girl Friday" (some of the quickest dialogue I'd ever heard) and with Katherine Hepburn in "Bringing up Baby."
My other favorite comedic actor is Peter Sellers. Those Pink Panther films were hysterical, for example, that guy that Inspector Clousseau would hire to attack him just to keep him in shape. You never knew when he was going to attack, and when he did, it was always at the worst possible time. Great stuff.

My all-time favorite. But I also laughed pretty hard at Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and also at Arsenio Hall's scene in "Amazon Women on the Moon".
If you can laugh the FIRST time you see "Eraserhead", you might be more warped than I.

Or......"combing the desert"! hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Heide ~ not a Mel Brooks' fan, but Spaceballs was good, John Candy was never better!
04-29-2003, 01:48 PM
That reminds me of Throw Momma From the Train. Billy Crystal and Danny DeVito are two of a kind.
Speaking of John Candy I liked Uncle Buck alot.

I agree with you - Cat Ballou was a riot. That was the first movie I ever saw where Lee Marvin played a comical part. All I ever knew was his serious stuff ie; Liberty Valance,Bad Day at Black Rock, Dirty Dozen. I also liked Barbarella. Remember that one with Jane Fonda. That was pretty funny. How about Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask? That was an allstar cast with some great lines. Remember Gene Wilder and Dolly the sheep? Or Woody Allen(he plays a sperm) thinking he's going to be squirted on the ceiling> As for Mel Brooks - don't forget Silent Movie. The whole movie had no talking except for one line. It was spoken by Marcel Marceau, the great mime. Also Monty Python movies were good.

Peter Sellers is also a favorite of mine and the Inspector Clousseau movies are hilarious. My very favorite Peter Sellers movie has to be "The Party". Peter plays the part of a bumbling East Indian movie actor. It was so popular (back in my day) it acheived cult status, especially amoung a group of friends. Years after it was released, I would get phone calls. The anonymous caller on the other end would only say two words, "birdie num-nums" and then would hang up amidst hysterical, maniacal laughter. I would immediately check the TV guide cause it meant The Party was going to be on TV. Yes, I was not always the callee.
04-29-2003, 09:05 PM
Don't forget Peter Sellers in A Shot in the Dark and Dr. Strangelove.

Well yeah. A "fur piece" is a long way, as opposed to "over yonder" which is usually less than a mile. BTW "thataway" is directional, not distance-specific. Glad I cleared that up. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

One of my most favorites that is absolutely hillarious is "Gung Ho". The movie stars Michael Keaton. If you have not seen it, you gotta watch it.

Michael Keaton? That reminds me of two excellent movies "Mr. Mom" and "Night Shift"
Micheal Keaton? Pacific Heights is my favorite by him. But he did another funny one, Multiplicity.
How about "I Love You To Death" with Keannu Reaves and a bunch of other guys whose names escape me. I thought that movie was really funny.
Well lets see, Airplane, Monty Python, most of Gene Wilder,
how about Frau Bluker? Now how do I type a horse sound? LOL

My warped mind won't let me remember. LOL Where was this from, it's about two brothers, if one brother got hit, the other one felt the pain! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Oh wait! How could we have forgotten The Gods Must Be Crazy? Hahahahahaha.
Blues Brothers, Young Frankenstien, Caddyshack, Quest for the Holy Grail, and The Pink Panther series are all tops. But I can't believe nobody mentioned Animal House. C'mon!

Now you've got me thinking about Robin Williams. Any of his movies crack me up. His stand up is to die for. I sit here and laugh my head off while the guys sit and think I'm nuts. He is one of the funniest men on the planet. Loved him in Mrs. Doubtfire. He and "what's his face?" in The Bird Cage - absolutely hilarious!!!! The two of them make a perfect comedic pair, if I could only think of his name. He was even funny in the Mork and Mindy era.

I believe you are trying to think of Nathan Lane (sp).
Robin Williams is the funniest man on the planet. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Trying to add to the list rather than repeat everyone's excellent responses:
Coming to America
The Court Jester (probably my #1)
Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex but Were Afraid to Ask
Fred <~~~ thinks laughter is the best medicine. Other than Claritin, that is.
05-01-2003, 01:48 PM
Blazing Saddles and Planes, Trains, & Automobiles are awesome funny movies. I would also like to add Friday to the list. Not my typical type of movie, but Chris Tucker is the man.
Also, if you're DVD shopping, I recommend the new Family Guy Seasons 1 & 2 DVD set. It's freakin' hilarious. Best $40 you will ever spend.
"Holy Crip, he's a crapple!"
05-01-2003, 01:52 PM
Blazing Saddle is one of the best!! I saw it in the theaters when it first came out with a date.
I can still hear Harvey Korman saying to Madeline Kahn, "No, you teutonic twat!".
And Madeline's outrageous accent saying, "It's twoo, it's twoo!".
Barbara~~~really, it's my allergies making my eyes tear like this... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
"Easy Money" with Rodney Dangerfield and Joe Pesci. If you've never seen it, go and rent it. Well worth the six bucks.
05-02-2003, 08:29 PM
Lots of great post here already but one I did not see mentioned that had me laughing with tears in a couple of scenes is Tim Allen in JOE SOMEBODY.

Have you seen "Women on The Verge of a Nervous Breakdown"? It's in Spanish with English subtitles.
One other hilarious foreign film is "Johnny Stacchini" (Johnny Toothpick) with Roberto Benigni (sp?)it's in Italian with English subtitles.
Both are pee in your pants funny! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
