Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

I thought we'd be kicking off with something more obscure, but we're going straight in with the big hitters it seems. I've seen all six of the films revealed so far, which I really wasn't expecting...

Re: The MOFO Preliminary Discussion of the Top 100 Comedies

For some reason I feel like I would have found it easier to come up with a list of 25 comedy TV shows than 25 comedy movies.

This wasn't quite what I was expecting - more horror madness than fun madness. I felt there was much more fun to be had with the multiverse than 'basically the same except red means go and green...

Re: The MOFO Preliminary Discussion of the Top 100 Comedies

I'm finding it hard to compile a list for this one. It's not just deciding how good a film is, it's also deciding how much it is a comedy.

My preliminary list is sadly lacking in foreign comedies...
