Well, like, that's your opinion, man. I had The Big Lebowski as my #1 comedy, and it took only two seconds of thought to know from the very beginning that it would be my top film. I didn't even like...

Airplane! was my #15, one of the funniest films of all-time, and it remains just as funny, if not more so, after fifty viewings. Of the final two films, one of them is my #1 and one is at #14, so I...

No, I would consider Do the Right Thing far more of a comedy than Dazed and Confused, because it's stylized in such a way as to make no sense as a straight drama. Such as the scene I posted...

Or even three decades ago. And if Fargo is a comedy, flippin' Do the Right Thing is a comedy, given how much more it plays for laughs. Silly to insist otherwise.

Imdb lists it as a comedy, drama, and Wikipedia describes it as a comedy-drama, so clearly we are not the only ones who consider it a comedy. Why I think so highly of the movie is how it explores...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

I remember how big Ghostbusters was back in the day and I have it in my DVD collection, but it's never risen to the very top of my favorites, so I didn't include it. I will have four of the final...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

I completely forgot about Groundhog Day, and I'm sure I would have squeezed it onto my list somewhere in the 20s, but it obviously didn't need any extra help.

I don't think The Long Goodbye can really be appreciated unless the person understands it's a comedy. That it’s a comedy allows it to do things in ways that wouldn’t work if it were simply a...

You think so? I thought all in all the movie was rather faithful, except for the rather cliched (even then) ending. The movie is a bit lighter, but the book is a comedy. Anyhow, it's a shame The Thin...
