    Liar Liar is another great comedy. Probably Jim Carey's best movie IMO

    Totally agree with the guy who recommended Being There. That's a great movie.

    I love all of Python but Life of Brian is my fav. By a landslide. Blame my repressed upbringing.

    But the movie I love that hasn't been mentioned yet is Groundhog Day. I don't know how many times I've seen it, but close enough to form an almost zenlike connection with the main plotline.

    There's too many 'best' comedies to mention but 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' has to make the list for sure.

    Some funny movies listed so far.

    I watch TCM a lot and recently discovered Buster Keaton. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen is Steamboat Bill, Jr.

    I also like The Marx Brothers. I own Duck Soup and most of the others. My favourite is A Night at the Opera.

    Then more recently there's Midnight Run with Robert De Niro.

    Lysistrata

    Lysistrata
    (/laɪˈsɪstrətə/ or /ˌlɪsəˈstrɑːtə/; Attic Greek: Λυσιστράτη, Lysistrátē, "Army Disbander") is an ancient Greek comedy by Aristophanes, originally performed in classical Athens in 411 BC. It is a comic account of a woman's extraordinary mission to end the Peloponnesian War between Greek city states by denying all the men of the land any sex

    I know this make me look pretentiuos but I'm more workingclass and a bigger sinner than most here.

    Nothing man ever came up with comes close

    +1, it's dated but it's still one funny movie. For it's time it was "outrageously funny" and has a cast of more funny people in a single movie than I've ever scene. (Jonathan Winters and Buddy Hackett alone are worth the price of the ticket.) Along the same lines, from the same period, was The Russians Are Coming. Alan Arkin is great!

    +1, Michael Caine and Steve Martin...killer combo. I've never heard the phrase "May I go to the bathroom?" the same way since seeing it...

    Beverly Hill Cop is one of my favorites. Eddie Murphy in his prime with a great supporting cast.

    Yep.....perfect holiday comedy.
    I'm pretty hard to please in the comedy genre but I really miss John Candy in this context.
    Wagons East wasn't very good but....hey...it's John Candy!

    After watching PT&A we might throw on Home Alone 1 & 2. (#3 sucked....in all my subjectivity :))
    I still laugh heartily during both of them.

    A good day to all.....
