The Top Ten

Dumb 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...


I almost couldn't watch this movie I was laughing so hard haha. Anything with Jim Carrey should be on this list period.

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!
Okay, this needs to be number 1!
This is just hilarious!
This is a perfect example of everything coming together perfectly and being both clever and funny at the same time
Even the smallest things they did was great, using coconuts to substitute horses (since they couldn't afford any) is just brilliant
Which is is exactly what this movie is: Brilliant
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!
Tis only a flesh wound!

3The Hangover
Alan Garner is by far the funniest Comedy Character of all time, he is such a crack up.

There is a joke in like every single line, such a funny film!

5The Big Lebowski
That rug did pull the room together...


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. "

what's that?
-and that?
-and that?

Ok I know this is a outtake


haha... its funny because its true...


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!

7Anchorman; Legend of Ron Burgundy
"If you were a man, I'd punch you. Punch you in the mouth. "
"It's illegal in nine countries. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good. "
"60% of the time, it works every time. "
"They said no, you can't do that, he's a live bear. He will literally rip your face off. "
"By the beard of Zeus! "
"I'm very important. I have many leatherbound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany. "
"Diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used in the Civil War era. "
"I'm in a glass case of emotion! "
"Knights of Columbus! "
"Great Oden's Raven! "
"Milk was a bad choice. "
"Bark twice if you're in Milwaukee. "

This is why it should be included on the top ten list of comedies.
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.

8The Gods Must Be Crazy II
Number II is definitely the best! This will have you laughing for ages!
One of My Favourite movies of all time.
If you haven't seen it... Go for it asap. Try to see the prequel also. You'll love it.
Even if this film highly express the idiot ethnic idea of those idiot white bulls IT makes me funny!
I Love this movie I watch it everyday. It reminds me of my past it always brings tears of laughter in my eyes.


More comments about The Gods Must Be Crazy II

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
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
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

10Step Brothers
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!


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 is one of my favourite films. Very funny. Every time I see it it makes me laugh.

The Contenders

11Happy 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.

12Monty 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.


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.

13Office 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!
More comments about Office Space

14My Cousin Vinny
Awesome movie! The pace of the film is somewhat slow, but the humor is nonetheless rocking! Some of the scenes make you laugh like ROTFL especially joe pesci. a must watch
"Yeah, you blend"
"Yut? What's a yut? "
"My biological clock is ticking"
"This adorable, cute little deer is driking water from a pond with it's cute little adorable mouth, then looks up and BAM gets shot right between the eyes.. Now I axsks you.. Do you think that deer gives a f*** what the schmuck who shot I'm was wearing? " PRICELESS!
It has the best court room scenes. A nice watch from beginning to end.

15Austin 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.


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

16The Naked Gun - From the Files of Police Squad!
This should be in the top 5, this movie is never getting old. The best spoof/parody movie ever!
Should be in the top 10 at least! Leslie Nelson come on :)
No doubt the hardest I've ever laughed in my life!

17Shaun 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!


More comments about Shaun of the Dead

Very underrated. I love this film. So entertaining

19Blades of Glory
When I first saw this movie I pratically wet my pants with laughter because it is so funny!


I friggen LOVE this movie!


I can watch this movie everyday, it so funny.

20This 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.


"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!
I did not care for this movie at all, I don't see whats so funny about it, its mostly a movie about the world worst rock band who fail at just about everything they do.


With such incredible acting performances from a great ensemble, I think Harold Ramis deserves some kind of comedy medal for not only writing such a hilarious script, but also getting everybody on the same page. Comedic timing is something that's sticks out most to me in this one, and not only from the guys who you can just say, "Go out there and do your thing, " like Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, and Rodney Dangerfield, but from the entire cast top to bottom.

A very worthy #2. My #s 3-10 could probably get shuffled around depending on what kind of mood I'm in.


After telling my kids how funny this movie was I rented it quite a few years ago. They hated it and quite frankly I was surprised how unfunny it really is. We must have been hard-up for laughs at the time.
Truly hilarious you got Bill Murray, Chevy Chase and the late Rodney Dangerfield all in one movie deserves to be higher.

You mean to tell me Friday is this low? Wow, and no Eddie Murphy movies. Shame on this sham list, I guess black people aren't funny. Smh
The best movie ever
This is the best commedy movie ever, what the best chris turker ice cube... Etc

23Ace 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.
More comments about Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

24Hot Fuzz
Why on Earth is this so far down? Hot Fuzz is an amazingly funny film, with brilliant lines and brilliant acting from Nick Frost and Simon Pegg - possibly the funniest acting duo in HISTORY! Should be at least in the top ten.
It was so difficult to not vote for Anchorman, the Holy Grail or Borat but... this film is just stupidly funny. It gets funnier every time. Lets get this to the top ten!


This is not right, should definitely be 1st, my favourite film of all time. Why isn't It further up, surely top ten standard.


More comments about Hot Fuzz

25Tommy Boy
Too many people have lost the ability for rational thought by not voting this movie number 1. I'm at a loss for words.

"I was just checkin' the specs, on the in-line for the rotary... Girder. I'm retarded. "

Tommy Boy is comedy magic!


You people disgust me. Chris Farley is an American ICON! You are insulting this man by not saying that movie is the greatest movie EVER. Game over.
This movie should be in the top ten and that's not just my opinion that's a fact!

26Tropic Thunder
Seriously? Number 60?! It's the best movie of all time! How can you people do this? Have you people even see this movie yet?
This is by far the number 1 movie in my list

27Animal House
This should have been in the top 10!
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!

28The Blues Brothers
There will never be another like it
Come on people! This movie is the greatest! 0.6%? Bite me!
Every time I watch it there's something new what a gut buster

29Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle
WHAT? HAROLD AND KUMAR doesn't get into top 10 list?! Oh common, you must be kidding.
They get so much trouble for an hour's ride to Whitecastle.
With Neil Patrick Harris in it, Its
Wait for it..

It's very sad to see this so low on the list. I expected top 5.


31Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
Mike Myers is a funny man! And Austin Powers is definitely his best movie, if you haven't watched it your weird and Dr. Evil is the funniest movie character of all time
This movie is so funny as if it didn't make the top ten


lots of funny moments funniest movie of all time, and good action as well as a great soundtrack, just like the 1st one

32Wayne's World
It's my favourite movie all times! I know some people find it stupid (including my whole family), but I adore this movie! It's about friendship and love, and honesty and it's so, so, so, so funny! I mean, you really LAUGH with that movie. I suggest you all go and watch it. If you love comedies, you'll understand it's really, really good.
I love it so badly! Wayne is so hilarious.
Waynes World is amazing! Should be at least number 10

33Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
Awesome... Cassandra is the best with her boobies...
Very entertaining and funny. Elvira is an adorable character. I adore her sense of humor. Great film!

3421 Jump Street
This movie should be at least in the top 30s. Great humor and moments that had me laughing my ass off almost every second.
No doubt the funniest movie ever. Everyone second I was laughing my ass off. This movie should be way up in the top 30s.

35Dodgeball - A True Underdog Story
The movie that will make you crack up for hours and hours


Hilarious, will make you laugh the whole way. Seriously.
This movie is funny

36Meet the Parents
The movie is not only decent in nature but the delivery of natural comedy was amazing. No need to look dumb to be funny.
A lot of people don't like Ben Stiller it seems, but this movie with him and Robert de Niro will always be one of my favorite comedies.
Funny movie, no stupidity necessary.

37A Fish Called Wanda
Beside the rest of these films. Fish Called Wander has Comedy with Intelligence to the film, which make this a movie to remember for ever!
It was between this film and hot fuzz for me but Otto was the difference 'don't call me stupid'
This is truly a great co, edy and should be much higher on your list.

38Blazing Saddles
This is one of the best movies ever period... laugh out loud gene wilder is a comedy god! And mel brooks is a legend... if you don't think this movie is funny than there is something wrong with you
Should be number one funniest movie of all time hands downs
Insult to the great movie if not on list I mean seriously borat is even on this list
This is not in the top 10?! This movie is the best. Crazy hilarious and I think the only other movie in this movie's league is Animal House.

39Groundhog Day
This is not only one of the greatest comedies of all time, but also a great movie in any sense of the word. It should in no way be this low.
Very hilarious! Good script, good story and good cast. PURE COMEDY GENIUS!

28? Spaceballs, my favorite movie ever, is number 28?!?! What!?! It is just shameful that Dumb and Dumber is number 1. Dumb and Dumber is DUMB! ANY Mel Brooks movie should be in the top ten. Anchorman, Superbad, and Step Brothers are great, but NOT TOP TEN GREAT! And get the Hangover off of the top ten. Come on people! Spaceballs is so much better!
LOL at the end that prince had long hair and the guy was like "I now pronounce you Mrs. and Mrs.. " and then the prince was like "Hey! " and then the minister was like "Sorry, it's the hair" LMAO that was one of THE funniest parts! Still, I don't think this movie was funnier than Howard The Duck.


Me and my brother actually had to pause the movie during a few scenes so we wouldn't miss anything because we were laughing so hard


My dad showed me space balls when I was young. It is amazing. Mel Brooks is great and so r his films such as: Robin Hood: Prince of thrives, Step Brothers and Anchorman. Not stupid Air plane! Come on people. Get a life!

Oh my god! How come this is only 45? This is obviously one of the best movies in the world. Almost every bit of it is hilarious. All time favorite. 👌 the best.

42Some Like It Hot

44She's The Man
It's so funny! You'll never regret if you try :))
Malcolm: I am convinced he's hiding something.
Principal Gold: Oh, nonsense, Malcolm. He may be a little lost and confused, but deep down he's an all-American, red-blooded male, just like yourself.
Viola: [walking by, dressed as Sebastian, while on the phone] Mom, I will pick out my own dress. And no, I will not wear high heels. Because heels are a male invention designed to make women's butts look smaller... and to make it harder for them to runaway.
Principal Gold: Malcolm, have you ever tried to run away in high heels?
Malcolm: No, sir, I...
Principal Gold: Not that easy. Not that easy...

Funniest film ever! I nearly died laughing so hard at this. The Wayans brothers are endlessly hilarious! Also much love for Terry Crews and his perfect part. The car scene will always make me laugh, and when he is dancing in the club on the drugs.
The Wayans brothers are brilliant in this! 10 minutes didn't go by without me laughing! Terry Crews was hilarious! The car scene and the part when he was dancing in the club was fantastic! Loved I. Will watch it again and again.

The first movie I have watched 5 times! That's how much I love it! Amazing cast, great sense of humor and Miranda Cosgrove at a very young age!
The world is run by the Man & there used to be a way to stick it to the Man. It was called rock 'n roll, but guess what, oh no, the Man ruined that, too, with a little thing called MTV!
Awesome fun to watch those kids rock...the movie is fabulous

Tough call between Super Troopers and Office Space. Both funny, just different kind of funny.

77Top Secret!
75! This is made by the same people who made Airplane which is 8th, but this is 2 times funnier than Airplane. It is so random. What was up with that random part where there's Pac-Man? I laughed out loud SO hard at that part.

78Napoleon Dynamite

84Nacho Libre
Should be in the Top 10 watch again funny movie!

85Trading Places

86Easy A

87Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
It is a crime that this movie is so low on this list. This film seriously deserves to be at least in the top 10. Jim Carrey will never beat Peter sellers and George C. Scott.
Thing is, this movie isn't just funny, it's incredibly smart and dark... A scathing political statement, which, if I may say so, might be more relevant than the moral and emotional complexity offered by 'Dumb and Dumbe'. -. -
I mean, it's Stanley Kubrick!



This should be higher... It was the best comedy movie I've ever seen.. So funny

90Yes Man

91Grown Ups 2

92Rush Hour
By far the best comedian movie by any Asian

When Jackie was hanging in last seen and Carter say hold on for about an hour and I am going to bring an ambulance. Haha

Three friends conspire to murder their awful bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness. The best comedy movie in last 5 years!
This movie was HILARIOUS! You gotta be kidding me it's this far back.

94Drop Dead Fred

95The Simpsons Movie
Reminds me of the cinemas



97Police Academy
Best of the best. Creat comedy done by lassard, larvile and procter

98I'm Gonna Git You Sucka

Fantastic clever movie. Love it when Ben stiller smashes the model of the school saying it's too small.
An overlooked masterpiece! Will Ferrel's Mugatu is pure genius. Mer-MAN. Mer-MAN! Give this one another watch and bump it up the list.
