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.

22 Groundhog 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!

Why is this movie so low on the list. It's a great rom-com-feel good-fantasy flick

23 Blazing Saddles

This is, simply put, the best movie ever made. Period. It does two things that most people will tell you are almost impossible to do in a work of art: centralizing the issue of race, and delivering the art of comedy. If you don't "get it," you are a narrow-minded idiot -- I'm sorry. The ending alone elevates this movie to a different, surrealistic strata, but its ballsy confidence in staring racism and Hollywood cliches in the eye...well, geez -- it's just a great seat-of-the-pants creation by some pretty confident filmmakers. Relax -- Bart and the Waco Kid are the heroes. And, somehow, the bad guys are hilarious and repugnant at the same time. The Waco Kid -- Gene Wilder -- sitting with his popcorn in the last scene...just before he and Bart ride off into the sunset...to that score...well...it pulls all if it together...in a nice happy ending.

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

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.

Truly iconic.

24 Wedding Crashers

This should move up on the list. A very funny movie. Great acting of Rachel McAdams and Isla Fisher.

He 's getting married...hahaaha...what a Loser! (kicks chair) What an idiot!...still, more for me and you. Worth it just for the Will Ferrel scene - Benjy

Amazing movie! great pair.

25 Spaceballs

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. - asdfalexia

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 - Fwingsnitch

Hilarious

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! "

27 The 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!

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!

Third best comedy

30 21 Jump Street

31 Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

This movie and Network are among the best comedies ever made. I love the Mel Brooks movies, also. This is the movie that introduced me to Peter Sellers' genius. The other movie I would add to Dr. Strangelove and Network is A New Leaf, a movie that does not contain the biting social satire of the first two.

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'. -. -

Amazing

34 This Is the End

This is literally one of the only comedies I can call a comedy, because of how actually funny and genius the idea is

How is this not rated higher than Happy Gilmore?!?

What. this is. Not in top 10... Oh common

35 Ted

37 National Lampoon's Vacation

Oh hell, this is a hysterical movie. Chevy Chase is a comedy god/allstar

I love this movie so much! people, watch it! so funny!

38 Friday

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

Classic. enough said

This is the best commedy movie ever, what the best chris turker ice cube... Etc

39 Meet 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.
