I'm pretty sure that I saw Big Trouble in Little China many years ago, (because Hubby has the DVD), but I don't remember anything about it. I didn't even remember that it was a comedy.


I watched Napoleon Dynamite for this countdown because I found the DVD at a garage sale after the countdown was announced, and based on what I've heard or read about it, I expected it to make the countdown. I don't really understand all the hype about this movie. I thought it was just an average movie. The only character that I liked was his cousin's girlfriend. The rest of them were either dull or annoying.

Fwiw, if you've seen Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt is basically trying to ape Kurt Russell from this movie.
Kurt Russell, for his part, is doing a parody-impression of John Wayne in the movie. John Wayne seemed to have daddy-issues with John Ford. Kurt Russell plays Chris Pratt's father in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Okay, let's see:

Best in Show is a very funny movie and I've been to enough dog shows (and just for fun!) to get a kick out of what Christopher Guest was lampooning. Glad to see it here.

Snatch Have yet to see it but will definitely soon...thanks to @John Dumbear for letting me know it's currently on Netlfix!

Big Trouble in Little China is one of my favorite movies of all-time, but I didn't consider it for this list. I mean, it's got comedy, Kung-Fu, monsters, beautiful ladies, raw fish, you name it! Since it's got everything, I didn't isolate the comedy for this list although I laugh at it more than anything, so...I missed out! D'oh! And I know there are several from my list that just won't make it so I should have included BTiLC but what can ya do?

Napolean Dynamite is a movie I really enjoy but I didn't consider it for my list. Thanks to @PHOENIX74 for mentioning Gentlemen Broncos! If anyone does like Napolean Dynamite then Gentlemen Broncos is definitely right up that alley. I really loved that movie and then forgot all about it for this list! Just like Used Cars that a few people have mentioned---how could I forget about frickin' Used Cars??? Gahhh!

Still:
#8 Stripes which is #90 on THE list.

Big Trouble... is a nice fun campy delight, if you don't mind the OTT chaotic madness.


I thought @honeykid was the only United fan here.
I'm no United fan, can't stand them, but I do respect his achievements.
