    What the Americans call airplane. But even funnier is top secret.

    Life of Brian.

    Naked gun

    Blues brothers

    Spinal tap

    Tons of others.

    Hard to say, really. I loved MPATHG but much like the Three Stooges, I saw it enough to memorize most of it...and now can't seem to make myself watch it. Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles...same category.

    I would watch "The In-Laws" again as I haven't seen it since it came out (and I remember it was funny).

    I like Gene Wilder films so "Start The Revolution Without Me" is a long-time favorite. Before there was Monty Python, my buddies and I would gather to watch it anytime it was on. Teenagers.

    "Top Secret" is a great one. "Airplane" is also.

    For best comedy from a first time screenwriter, Waiting easily takes it.

    The dream rap scene was so obscene, they had to cut it from the movie, and then show it after all the credits ran at the theaters (nsfw):

    Great list. so far I agree with it but it does skew a bit old. If you guys like these I can suggest 21 and 22 jump street also the other guys.

    Not endorsing it but anyone remember evil Roy slade? I saw it as a kid but no idea if it would stand up.

    mp&hg - good stuff
    look further back @ The Pink Panther series and Some Like It Hot, esp if you liked the aggro features in Birdcage (French original even funnier)

    Love it, but hate the ending.

    I nominate:

    Pulp Fiction
    Up in Smoke

    Tarantino was inspired by Up in Smoke.

    For sadly funny, Idiocracy (2006) wins by a landslide.

    I hated it when it first came out....then somehow the entire movie came true.

    You can look at someone's head and immediately know if they think the movie is funny or not

    Blazing Saddles, hands down all time best.

    There’s a great scene in it which we still quote,m and if memory serves, spade (played by the wonderful John Astin (Gomez Addams) is wounded, and the police are closing in. He says to the gang, leave me boys, get out. One of them says ‘we won’t leave you boss’ and he says ‘didn’t I teach you guys nuttin’?’

    This was a bit tough to decide. My initial thought was "Blazing Saddles", but after some consideration, it is "Big Lewbowski" for the win.

    I have heard so much about this but can’t seem to find it. The premise sounds cool and I SO WANT TO WATCH IT

    “Young Frankenstein” for me (and keep in mind it came out a decade before I was born) because not only is it saturated with great jokes, but it’s the rare parody that actually works as a good example of the type of movie it’s spoofing. Yes, it’s a good comedy. It’s also quite a good Frankenstein movie.


    Runners up include “Duck Soup” and “Kung Pow: Enter the Fist.”

    And while not a movie, this has probably the most jokes per minute of just about anything I’ve seen (and watch more than ten minutes before jumping to judgement):

    Funniest? No such thing. Too many great ones, and to many different tastes.

    I love Monty Python, but prefer Life Of Brian and Meaning of Life over Holy Grail.

    It's usually on/off Netflix every few months, Hulu has it, rent it on Amazon for $4 - but if you are going to buy it, Walmart has it for $3.99
