    Great comedies so far. I’ll add:
    A Shot in the Dark-1st of the Pink Panther movies
    The Twelve Chairs-Mel Brooks
    A Fish Called Wanda- Jamie Lee Curtis!

    The title doesn't specifically say "Movie" ... and since it's "of all time" ... I vote for a Shakespeare play Midsummer Night's Dream

    It's the second "Pink Panther" movie after "The Pink Panther." :)

    Although ancient, best Horror comedy has to go to Return Of The Living Dead (1986).

    The movie was actually completed before The Pink Panther (1963), but this “sequel” was released a few months after the first film in the series.

    There's sooooo many scenes that are comedy gold.....here's my favourite. I think it's just a perfect comedy moment....all the stuff that goes on prior to this scene to set it up and the perfect acting...camera angles...the whole scene is a masterpiece...I'm always out of breath with tears running down my face after watching this....lol

    I think what makes this so difficult is that there are many forms of comedy. From the physical humor of Abbot and Costello to the more dry wit of Woody Allen and all points in between. I still hold my conclusion that "big Lewbowski" is out in front, but there will always be a special place in my heart for the wit displayed in "Harvey" as well for over-all humor. It might be more interesting to break it down to funniest scene of any movie rather than the whole movie? It would still be very difficult, but when I thought about it, even my votes for funniest movie don't actually include what I cast as the funniest scenes of any movie.

    There are lot of great scenes out there (fork scene in "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", the raid scene from "Django unchained", the glow in the dark condom scene in "Skin Deep".....just so many great ones.

    I’ve never seen another movie that got as much laughter and audience reaction as this one.

    Obviously tastes vary. I love a good comedy.
    Yet I have never found anything Monty Python or Monty Python related funny enough to sit all the way through. Ever.

    Python movies are classic.

    Just to throw a few favorites out there for consideration:
    • Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
    • Zoolander
    • Canadian Bacon

    I've never seen Prisoner of Second Avenue, but if it's in the same category as your other two votes, I think I need to look for this one.

    Based on a lot of the suggested "winners" here, a lot of you guys have yet to make it out of puberty! :twisted: Some of the “winners” named here you couldn’t pay me to watch.

    I agree with the suggestion of Ground Hog Day, the Pink Panther films, and Plains, Trains & Automobiles (which I think is reminiscent of The Out-of-Towners, which was funnier). Also, Liar, Liar, and maybe a few others mentioned here.

    But my short list would have to include Harvey. And if pressed to say one comedy film is my favorite, without hesitation I would say The Princess Bride. I’m truly surprised that no one else has mentioned it yet.
