    For funniest movie NOT to watch with your kids, Happiness (1998) is pure magic.

    Can't measure funny on anything other than a personal level. No mention of the Marx Bros so far...

    This looks like MUST SEE TV based on all the accolades it has received here.

    And it’s brought to us via OFFICE SPACE?? I’m off to BLOCKBUSTER right NOW!!

    Idiocracy isn't funny, it's prophetic.

    I entered this thread specifically with the intent of correcting you if you gave that title to any movie other than Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Well done and enjoy!

    I would say 70% of this list made my all-time list 20 years ago... As previously touched upon, most didn't hold up for me over time. Most recently was Blazing Saddles, I tried to share it with my 22 year old daughter, she didn't think it was funny at all...And sadly.... I didn't laugh much either.
