    It is hard to beat "The Life of Brian" as just a plain goofy movie.

    No thinking required.

    Of course, if I want to think while being entertained, I have to lean toward "Dr. Strangelove."

    You?

    Didn't see Life of Brian for about three years after its release. I was living in Brighton at the time and the local council banned it on religious grounds! I guess they just didn't get it...
    I like The Princess Bride and I'm a fan of the first Ice Age movie.

    P.S. that's some really tasty sparkle that you do!

    When I first read the post, "Brian's Song" is what I thought I read. Big difference!

    Depends on how much you want to apprecate the satire...

    Anyhow, my pick is "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure"

    More recently maybe Napoleon Dynamite and Defendor were pretty funny in an odd beat type of way.

    Older movies - virtually any comedy with Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield or Leslie Nielsen. Spies Like Us was pretty goofy and gave me a laugh every five years or so.

    Oooo, I love both of those :)

    For pure silliness, I'm going with "Duck Soup" because of my Marx Bros obsession.

    If I have to think (geez, I hate doing that!), I'd go with "A Clockwork Orange" because try as I might, I can't figure that damn thing out.

    Oh yeah - Pink Panther movies forgot about them I have the whole collection :D

    I'd like to add the Clouseau laughing gas scene. I still remember the first time I saw it. It was late at night, the whole house was asleep and I cried laughing so hard it woke everyone up :lol::lol::lol:

    Mr Hulot's Holiday, classic goofy. Also Bringing up Baby, although it's more screwball than goofy. And let's not forget Dumb & Dumber.
