Can anyone suggest some great comedies for me to watch? I just saw Wedding Crashers, and it reminded me of how enjoyable an actual funny movie can be. It’s not too hard to find a decent drama or suspense movie, but really funny movies are few and far between.
Some of my favorite comedies are:
The Big Lebowski
Some Like it Hot
A Fish Called Wanda
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
This is Spinal Tap
Old or new, it doesn’t matter. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
anything from Kevin Smith
Revenge of the Nerds
Dumb & Dumber
The Whole 9 Yards
Rush Hour 1 and 2
Finding Nemo, Shrek, Monsters Inc, Toy Story,
Without a Paddle
Meet the Parents
Blue Collar Comedy Tour
Ok the newest funniest movie is definitely Wedding Crashers. I just watched it last night. Anyone else watch it? Owen Wilson is my all-time favorite actor…I could die happy to meet him and ummm Dave Navarro! Talk about hottie! I watch Rock Star just to see him. The people sing pretty good too…I’m glad they kicked off Tara.
Haha, I take it ur not that big of an owen fan? lol. I can talk about Dave Navarro all day if you like him better haha. Sorry–I’ve taped every episode of Rock Star and ya…I’ve definitely had my dose of Dave that can last me until the next show on tuesday haha.
When I saw your name, it propmted me to mention a great comedy: Eddie Murphy: Delerious. It’s a stand-up act he did for HBO just after he left Saturday Night Live circa 1983. Raw was pretty good too, but Delerious was better.
The bestest funny movie ever was Robin Williams: Live on Broadway. I have seen lots of standups, and nothing comes remotely close to this. Although Another quite funny stand up is Denis Leary’s Cure for Cancer.
I was trying to remember the name of that one during a beery conversation a few weeks back…
from the same era: Dark Star
The Life of Brian & The Meaning of Life
Airplane (it was so stupid, i started to leave but i collapsed lauging into a seat and just ended up further back in the theatre…)
The Man with 2 brains
Yeah, the Live on Broadway one was great. If you can find his other two standups on tape or DVD (Live at the Met and Reality: What a concept!) then you’d be very happy too I’m sure.
A couple of other standup comedians I like are Gallagher and Dennis Miller. They’re quite different though; Dennis Miller tends to be quite cereberal, and a lot of his jokes go over most people’s heads. Gallagher tends to be a bit more accessible, as he includes a lot of visual humour in his shows. Especially his finale where he takes his giant sledgehammer and smashes stuff on stage with it, culminating with a watermelon. Always fun.
