I have a difficult time saying one particular flick is funnier than another...it depends on the mood one is in. For instance, I find Woody Allen’s “Zelig” very funny, but many people would not. They’d just consider it weird.

I also like “This is Spinal Tap”, “A Mighty Wind”, “Best in Show”, and “For Your Consideration”, but some people to whom I have recommended these pictures have watched them with a straight face and never cracked a smile.

So here are a few that I have enjoyed and believe many others would, too...they’re not necessarily “niche comedy” movies.

Funny Well Known Films:
“Murder By Death”
“Monty Python & The Holy Grail”
Any Naked Gun or Airplane! film

Now...very funny films you may NOT have seen, but are good:

“Amazon Women on the Moon”
“Rat Race”
“Walk Hard”

1. “Animal House”,
2. “A Fish Called Wanda”, and
3. “The Other Guys”

Honorable mention:
1. “Annie Hall” (not strictly a comedy)
2. The tasteless “Kentucky Fried Movie”.
3. “Stripes”
4. “One Crazy Summer”
5. “Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life” (the bucket scene)

The problem with many comedy movies is that they get less funny when you see them subsequent times.

My favorite is the original
“Vacation”

I remember my Mother thought “The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming” was extremely funny. I later saw it and thought it was OK but still can’t figure why Mother loved it so much.
