The Top Ten

Dumb and Dumber Dumb and Dumber Product Image

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...

The diarrhea scene... enough said. Also the part with the snowman's carrot penis and coal testicles. LOL.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Monty Python and the Holy Grail Product Image

For this movie is not only funny but a bit more accurate...
The setting itself is far more realistic compared to the Middle Ages but the more unrealistic and surreal part was the bridge scene and the Black Knight scene.

One scene where the group including King Arthur and Lance-a-lot went to a bridge guarded by a hermit. But if you answer in a wrong way with this question (such as "What's your name? " or "What's your favorite color? "), then you ended getting caught by levitation that comes out of nowhere.
(The hermit who ask questions also backfired when he was asked questions by King Arthur)

Another scene where the Black Knight challenge King Arthur to a sword fight but the most unusual part was the Black Knight got his limbs amputated during the battle and he is nothing but a limbless man that jumps in the battle.

Also I forgot that the White Rabbit scene.
Well here it goes...

The group of soldiers went to a cave lived by a ...more

This is a comedy, it's not supposed to make sense, I think you are missing the point of a comedy - Sultan_of_Swing

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!

Airplane! Airplane! Product Image

-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.

What makes it unique is its subtle and random mix of everything. The ability to turn a dramatic moment into a memorable laugh out loud time of your life is amazing. The jokes and characters never get old. 9/10

The Big Lebowski The Big Lebowski Product Image

That rug did pull the room together...

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. "

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

I love it! You have to understand the humor to start laughing though. I just feel sorry for the dude

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Product Image

"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.

I am going to do what god put me on this earth to do, to read the news and have salon quality hair

The Hangover The Hangover Product Image

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

I love this movie! I think if this ever happened to me I would definitely be stu just because of the the crap that happens to him throughout the movie! I laugh every time I watch it.

Step Brothers Step Brothers Product Image

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!

Stupid stupid stupid movie but I just love it so much! How is Dumb and Dumber #1 though? Jim Carrey might be the worst comedy actor ever and somehow he made millions being just idiotic.

Superbad Superbad Product Image

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

Best comedy movie I've ever seen.. It make me laugh all time with non stopping.. This should be number 1

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery Product Image

Really funny sequel. My dad would always impersonate him all the time. But one question where is WHITE CHICK!?!?!?!

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.

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.

Happy Gilmore Happy Gilmore Product Image

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

The Newcomers

? A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong

This, and ‘Peter Pan Goes Wrong’ are the funniest comedy films I’ve ever watched!

I especially love the bit where there’s a model village at night, and suddenly someone accidentally falls on the model, giving away the scale! You’ll have to watch it to know what I mean.

If you google ‘how can I watch A Christmas carol goes Wrong’ there’ll be a video from a website called ‘Lookmovie’. There you’ll be able to watch the whole movie for free!

? Rush Hour 2 Rush Hour 2 Product Image

The Contenders

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Product Image

I watched this movie once on television and laughed out loud over ten times. I was drunk at the time, so my recollection of the comical scenarios is a bit foggy, but I nevertheless must applaud the ingenious comedic minds who orchestrated this masterpiece.

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!

Caddyshack Caddyshack Product Image

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.

Oh.. Fools are those who don't enjoy these movies, take it lightly and enjoy

Monty Python's Life of Brian Monty Python's Life of Brian Product Image

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.

Absoulutely hilarious. I was pratically crying as it was so funny!

Shaun of the Dead Shaun of the Dead Product Image

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!

I can watch this a thousand times and it will only get funnier each time I see it! Should easily be in the top 10!

Office Space Office Space Product Image

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

Office Space is my favorite movie of all time, even after growing up watching Monty Python, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Jim Carrey, and Adam Sandler movies. It hits the funny bone of the Gen X-er in me, because it's about so many things we have dealt with in life. It makes us laugh at ourselves, our careers, and our lives. It's a hidden treasure!

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!

Borat Borat Product Image

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

Ok I know this is a outtake

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!

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

Animal House Animal House Product Image

This movie started comedies like this. It’s too funny not to love.

"Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life son." - "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? ". come on these were some of the best movie lines ever!

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!

Hot Fuzz Hot Fuzz Product Image

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!

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are a match made in heaven whoever put them together is a genius and they're films are even better. Both are incredible actors and I love this film to pieces and it should be much higher on the list.

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

Ghostbusters Ghostbusters Product Image

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.

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

What the hell did you put this in 27?!

Blades of Glory Blades of Glory Product Image

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

I can watch this movie everyday, it so funny.

I friggen LOVE this movie!

Where is Jon Heder now?

Tommy Boy Tommy Boy Product Image

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.

I make auto parts for the American working man because that's who I am and that's what I care about

This movie should be in the top ten and that's not just my opinion that's a fact!

Spaceballs Spaceballs Product Image

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

Easily one of the best. I had watched this when I was in school. It still is so comical. These are the types of movies - just leave your brain at the door and enjoy.

This is Spinal Tap This is Spinal Tap Product Image

Not only is this a genius movie and the father of mockumentaries. The actors improvised EVERY LINE pretty much. They were told what the scene was to accomplish, and they never told them smell the glove cover was supposed to be blacked out. This movie is also the funniest rock parody, the "Moby Dick" drum solo line had me practically wet my pants

"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.

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.

You need to understand what they are parodying in order to understand the movie's comic genius. - sweetbeef

The Naked Gun - From the Files of Police Squad! The Naked Gun - From the Files of Police Squad! Product Image

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

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.

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

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

Wayne's World Wayne's World Product Image

"Yes, and it's the choice of a new generation *holds up pepsi can*
"If you're gonna spew, spew in this *holds up one of those little ketchup cups*
"She's a babe, schwing! "
"Excellent" *repeat 50x throughout movie*
"Yeah, and monkey's might fly out of my butt! "
"Did you ever find Bugs Bunny attractive when he put on a dress and pretended to be a girl bunny? "
"Marriage is punishment for shoplifting in some countries"
"I once thought I had mono for an entire year, turns out I was really bored"
"We're not worthy, We're not worthy! "
"No stairway. Denied! " spoken after the guitar shop wouldn't let him play stairway to heaven

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.
