Greatest Comedy Movies of All Time

The best movies for a belly laughing, gut wrenching, tear producing, knee slapping good time. These are the movies that you always end up renting from the movie store if there is nothing new out and will always watch until the credits if you come across them while flipping through the channels.

The Top TenXW

1Dumb and Dumber

Anything with jim carrey has me falling off my seat

A really good movie, so funny and excellent memorable moments

Dumb and Dumber is the ONLY comedy where every scene, there is something to laugh at so it is number 1 easily... No brainer... - SSDirk

Funniest MOvie of my life

2Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Without a doubt the most hilarious movie of all time! We demand a shrubbery and when you return you must cut down a tree with this herring!

Dumb And Dumber and The Hangover, while great, some people don't find the humor funny. However, Monty Python And The Holy Grail is funny to all audiences. I did an experiment, watched Dumb And Dumber with some people, only a few were laughing, watched The Hangover with some people, few more were laughing, watched Monty Python And The Holy Grail with some people, every single person was laughing.

THIS MOVIE IS PURE GENIUS! The king of all satirical masterpieces!
The acting, the script and everything... It is all flawless! The Pythons truly have outdone themselves with this holy piece of work! This movie is INDEED the HOLY GRAIL of all comedy!

The line that made me on the floor laughing was, Ladies and gentlemen, this is a happy occasion, let's not bicker and argue over who killed who.

3The Hangover

Alan Garner is by far the funniest Comedy Character of all time, he is such a crack up.

Greatest movie ever you can't stop laughing really should be number 1 its sick

Alan and Stu made this movie so funny I pissed and crapped my pants at the same time

-she needs to go to hospital
-what is it?
-it's a big building with patients in it

My favorite movie. Every time I se it I always laugh so hard it hurts. I've seen it literally over 100 times and it never gets old. ! Hahaahaha

"I am, and stop calling me surely. " best line in a movie ever. This movie will make you laugh no matter how many times you've seen it.

The only movie in this top 10 that deserves a spot. Vacation, Christmas Vacation, Caddyshack, Blazing Saddles, The Naked Gun, Coming To America, The Great Outdoors, Rat Race, and The Cable Guy are the other nine to be included.

5Anchorman; Legend of Ron Burgundy

News team assemble Ron Burgundy Brian Fantana Brick Tamblan and the Champ Anchorman best damn comedy movie of all time.

Anchorman belongs in the top 5. I love this movie. It's science! My all time favorite line is when Ron: Brick where did you get a hand grenade? Brick: I don't know.

This is the all time most pointless, irrelevant, stupid movie I've ever seen. I never laughed once and I fell asleep. Well there's 10 bucks I'll never see again. - Beatlesboy9

Oh my gosh, this movie is the bomb. It's so funny, but I also like anchorman 2

6The Big Lebowski

That rug did pull the room together... - InsertNameHere

Love it! Haven't actually laughed out loud at a film in ages! Quirky and funny, better than the crap that current!

To all the people who didn't vote this: "That's just like, your opinion man. " But "I did not watch my buddies die face down in the muck" just so this movie could get 4th place. It deserves number one because after all "That rug really tied the room together. " - Greedo

A good movie I loved it.

7Step Brothers

Has some funny quotes and just retarded comedy that everyone loves! Will Ferrel is so funny at what he does and also a good actor, that can play good parts

This movie is truly amazing! Dumb and Dumber at number one?! It should be stepbrothers this is so funny and shows sibling rivalry at the same time. It's hilarious and I love Will Ferrell.

This movie is just so funny, I can't believe that some movies are on there that shouldn't be. THIS SHOULD BE! It's so funny, every second something funny happened. And the drumset scene was histerical! - marlonacott

Step Brothers Over Ant Comedy in my opinion

Borat is a million times better than Bruno, which was just a bunch of homosexual garbage! but this is so funny, and a lot of people look like Borat in real life!

9Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Oh my gosh. Every scene in this movie was funny, and not just funny, really funny. Although the other ones have Mini-Me, this is still the best one, and most funny. - bilbro29

This is a good movie. I loved it.

Sooo funny but how is dumb and dumber first it's all right that's one of jim carrey's only bad movie

10Happy Gilmore

It was much better than I thought. In fact, it made me laugh plenty of times!

Adam Sandler is hilarious! This is a great film, such a heart warming comedy! Makes me laugh every time! Must watch!

Why can't Sandler be this funny anymore I wish he passed on Jack and Jill.

This should be in the top 5. - DontMessWithDaddylonglegs

The Contenders


Jonah hill is so funny all of them are a great team in the film also this what made them famous so yeah but the plot and the characters are awesome but the best bit is the cooking part with Emma stone

I love this movie because of it's liveliness and madness. It is hilarious and crazy. It shows how geeky teenagers feel and is almost making it positive. Jonah hills performance was amazing in this movie and it should be number 1

Even though Dumb and Dumber is a hilarious film, this should be number 1, hilarious film, always makes me laugh and I could watch ot over and over again

Funny and really nails the high school best friend relationship

12Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

There are reasons why this is funny as hell 1. The opening scene 2. That scene when he was in the tank saying stuff from star trek 3. That scene when he was making his bottom talk 4. That scene when he thought he kissed a man and was trying to throw up, put in an entire tooth paste, burning the cloths he wore and cryed in the shower and he put in an entire pack of chewing gum and finaly 5. The ending scene

This is my favorite comedy by far! Jim carrey stars as stupid pet detective, ace ventura! As you watch this you will be rolling on the floor, howling with laughter!

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is by far the funniest movie I have ever seen in my entire life. The movie is wild, crazy, and at some points more than a bit moronic. Yet it has got a touch of subtle wit to it. This movie is as good as it could ever get.

Very very funny lots of fun

13Monty Python's Life of Brian

The first DVD I asked for. I hadn't seen it and I really wanted to, so I asked it for Christmas. So that year the Monty Python came into my life and the miracle happened, it was like finding that I was a missing a vital organ. Monty Python is my religion now. - Esteluki

Life indeed... The truth about life put in like a genius. The astonishing satire.. The crowd.. And the relishing end.. It's a whole package.. If you haven't watched it yet.. You are missing on "LIFE OF BRIAN".

Only second to the Holy Grail. - cheesytaco

I love the part when the guy gets stoned... - Pony

15Shaun of the Dead

This is one of the first movies to introduce the increasing trend of zombie spoofs! -

Shaun of the dead should be #1 it's so unique in every way with such funny witty British banter shaun of the dead is the best comedy ever!

Oh god. This movie. Pure gold. I've watched it so many times. Simon Pegg is just amazing. This really, really deserves to be in the top ten! - TheStupidHobo

16Office Space

funny usually no one's heard of it, but they SHOULD!!!

Anyone who has ever worked in an office and has had irritating bosses or colleagues will love, love, love it. I cannot recommend it more.

Probably the most quoted movie to date. People still quote this over a decade later! Now that is something!

I like it when they are smashing the printer in the middle if the meadow. "

17This is Spinal Tap

Absolutely genius, you notice little things the more you watch it. Probably the most quotable film of all time. All made for just 2 million dollars. Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer are just so so funny. Best comedy ever made. - camillon1

"How do you dust for prints on vomit? " "A Bizarre gardening accident" Talk about mud flaps my babe's got 'em" So many great lines. And you can never pick the top 10. The list goes to ELEVEN!

This list is strong. A lot of my favorites including The Holy Grail, Borat, Step Brothers reside in the top 20 as they should be. This is Spinal Tap, however, trumps them all.

Do a good show, eh. - Kidkoffee

18The Naked Gun - From the Files of Police Squad!

This movie is absolutely hilarious. The opening scene, the ridiculous baseball scenes (Enrico Pelatzo! ), the scene with the evil doctor, and of course the perfect drug bust scene make the movie tops.

This should be in the top 5, this movie is never getting old. The best spoof/parody movie ever!

No doubt the hardest I've ever laughed in my life!

I love it! The best part is when he sings the national anthem.

When there's something strange in the neighborhood, who you gonna call?

Shuld be at the top this is the best comedy movie of all time John Belushi its a shame he had to leave this world so young but trust me this movie is worth it!

This should have been in the top 10!

I really liked this movie. It was a good movie.
