Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

Dr. Strangelove was an honorable mention. Although uneven (which is a complaint I have with the majority of Kubrick films), its comic high points are fine enough that I included it on the list that...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

Airplane was my 4. Sure, you could look at it as a film whose jokes get thrown out in rapid fire fashion. But unlike most modern spoof films that seem to hang the film around the jokes, Airplane...

Young Frankenstein was my number 6. Mel Brooks at his finest in a film dealing with the Frankenstein legend, but done with enough verve and nerve that it circles around Dracula: Dead and Loving It...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

Like others, I'd thought we'd be seeing Monty in the top 3 at least. I did have that one at #5 by the way.

Ghostbusters had some good laughs. The third act doesn't quite do it for me, though. No vote.

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

Liked Groundhog Day well enough. Didn't make my list.

You know, I wish we had another workplace comedy or two that made the list. Kind of a shame really that it didn't.

I'm more surprised we didn't get any Hepburn/Tracy pairings than by It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World not making it. Either the votes on the films were too split or not enough people thought it was funny...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 Comedies Countdown

I don't think anybody was thinking Galaxy Quest was gonna make it. It's a cute parody of the Star Trek series, but I kind of wish a better director could have steered this one. The film tries to...

I kind of lean towards Breakfast Club, The Royal Tenenbaums and City Lights being the ones to miss.

I think The General and The Big Lebowski are 50/50. To make room for another surprise, perhaps...

I missed a couple of days. And two films made the list proper and another honorable mention:

None of these made my ballot, but the three I've seen had their specific charms.

I haven't heard of Playtime, let alone seen it.

I've heard of Brazil, but I haven't seen it.

I should see both of them at some point.
