Greatest Comedy Movies of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2
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.

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! "V 8 Comments
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'. -. -

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! - cws480
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

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! - Chippieolamus
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 has to be one of the side splittingly hilarious films I've ever seen. The best of the three flavours and is full of amazing actors. Cannot go wrong with hot fuzz it has everything anyone could want.V 9 Comments
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 comedyV 5 Comments
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 flickV 2 Comments
This should move up on the list. A very funny movie. Great acting of Rachel McAdams and Isla Fisher.
Amazing movie! great pair.
Come on people! This movie is the greatest! 0.6%? Bite me!
There will never be another like it
This movie is a classic it is the best movie Belushi ever made.
This movie surely RULES! - TacocheeseV 4 Comments
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

This movie should be at least in the top 30s. Great humor and moments that had me laughing my ass off almost every second.

This movie is awesomeV 3 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
