    Hmmmmm, we watched this recently, along with Life of Brian, two movies that we thought were hysterically funny at one point. Neither one of them held up for us, but The Meaning of Life still makes me LOL.


    As far as funniest, probably Woody Allen's "Broadway Danny Rose", maybe "Blazing Saddles, maybe "A Christmas Story", I don't know, hard to pin it down.

    Love MPATHG, but my pick is the early Mel Brooks film "The Producers," with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder. It was Brooks' first film as a director. Wickedly funny.

    Anything with Leslie Nielsen in it. He made me laugh then and he still makes me laugh.

    1. The In-Laws, 1979 with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin
    2. Young Frankenstein
    3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

    There's stupid that's funny, and then there's so stupid it's just stupid.
    Today's comedies tend towards the just stupid side. Of course, maybe it's just my age.

    Edit: A contemporary comedy I found funny was the British version (the original version) of Death at a Funeral.

    It would be impossible to pick the “greatest” because there’s so many great ones

    For a "candid camera" comedy I'd say Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
