Anything with jim carrey has me falling off my seat

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

I knew this gonna be the number one.

2 Monty 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!

Ferris Buellers grand day out should be on here, but nonetheless, I peed of laughter in this movie. "WE ARE ZE KNIGHTS WHO SAY... NEE! AND WE DEMAND A SHRUBBEREE!

Surely you can't be serious

5 The 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

He best - lolsy

6 Anchorman; 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.

I think at this point, it's just a fact that this movie is the best thing to ever happen to this Earth since humans discovered sex

"Smells like Bigfoot's dick! "
"60 percent of the time, it works... every time."
"LOUD NOISES! "
Love this movie - BlazenSpirit

7 Step 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.

Funniest Movie Ever! Will Ferrell and John Reilly have really done it! I've seen this movie 5 times and I always roll on the floor laughing! Stupidity is Funny!

8 Superbad

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

This movie is funny

9 Happy 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.

I love this movie, it is so much funny. Adam Sandler is funny in his movies. Being an adult, a teen, and a preteen are way much better than being a little girl and a little boy. Little children suck. Adults, teens, and preteens rock

10 Borat

what's that?
-cheese
-and that?
-cheese
-and that?
-Cheese...

Ok I know this is a outtake - TopTen10

The funniest movie I've ever seen (again and again) isn't on this list--"Used Cars" starring Kurt Russell and Jack Warden, so I'll go with Borat. My father and I watched Borat for the first time together, and we had to pause and rewind the DVD three separate times because we were both literally crying and howling. I've never done that with any other movie. I wish more people could see both movies, and not some of this other unfunny nonsense posted in this list. For the record, all the late 70's-early 80's National Lampoon Movies (official "National Lampoon's...", and those made by alumni--and the list is mightily long) were comedy gold. Ramis and Kenney (writers), Chase and Murray (actors), Guest (improviser)--fantastic movies.

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!

Borat is the funniest movie ever made in the hollywood industry👊i can still remember those funny dialogues of borat and start to laughing😊😃

The Newcomers

? See No Evil, Hear No Evil

With Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. It's hard to understand why this fantastic film wasn't already added. It's given my family and me some of the best laughs over the years. It's still one of our favourite comedy films of all-time. Wally (Richard Pryor) is blind, while Dave (Gene Wilder) is profoundly deaf. This comedy duo is formidable (also paired in Stir Crazy) Although Gene Wilder is marginally funnier in this film, the best line is delivered by Richard Pryor: "YOU MEAN I'M NOT WHITE?! DOES DAD KNOW? " Such a ridiculously funny film. Love it. - Britgirl

? Central Intelligence

This movie was so funny, kept me laughing the whole way! Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart work so well together! - Jessir47

The Contenders

11 Austin 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

I love this movie it has one of Austin Powers Iconic Lines: Do I make you horny baby, YEAH, Do I.

Perhaps unable to beat out old classics, but at least in the top five funniest movies of all time.

Yeah, baby, YEAH! - BlazenSpirit

12 Caddyshack

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. - Smmaloney1

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. - egnomac

This movie is so funny

13 Monty 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

This film taught me to always look on the bright side of life

14 Office 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!

15 Ace 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

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.

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!

Funniest movie ever

16 Shaun 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

Really funny. Most of film on top rated films like dumb and dumber, anchor man, monty python, Brian, cadishak etc are bogus and boring like a hell. Don't waste time and money on those bsnlmsgnumber.

18 Wayne'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.

How is this not in the top ten. The script is fantastic. The characters are amazing. The Jokes are amazing. This is the best comedy ever made in my opinion

I love it so badly! Wayne is so hilarious.

Funniest ever

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

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

While there are better comedies out there, it's sad to see this so low on the list so it has my vote.

This movie is FANTASTIC! Everybody should watch and like this film. Yes, even though it was not as good as the 1988 film 'Big' (starring Tom Hanks and directed by Penny Marshall) or as good as the 1985 film "Back to the Future" (starring Michael J. Fox and directed by Robert Zemeckis) or even the 2004 Marvel film "Spider-Man 2" (starring Tobey Maguire and directed by Sam Raimi) this film does do an very excellent job at keeping me entertained and makes me laugh. I did hope that this film would come in at the top 5 but... it is not my problem. So...pick up the phone and call- GHOSTBUSTERS! And remember- "I ain't afraid of no ghosts! "
