UHF is awesome. I own that one.

Conan the Librarian and Drinking from the fire hose are classic scenes. Spatchula City!

Very funny movie.

Blood Simple/Rushmore/Being There (tie)




Whoa, Mike. "Blood Simple" is more creepy than funny! No worries, though. It's all taste. I know a lot of people who didn't get "Rushmore"--too offbeat for popular tastes. I haven't seen "Being There," but I like Peter Sellers. Just recently got the Pink Panther boxed set and am going through those.

I like this thread, everybody has different opinions of funny!

So do you prefer uncut or edited versions, spiff?



LOL! You're too much Peter. To answer your question...it's ALL good.

As you said, it's a matter of taste. For all of the tense moments in Blood Simple, I find myself giggling through most of it. The Coens always enjoy poking fun at human foibles and weaknesses, and Blood Simple is a wonderful example of that tendency.

If you truly appreciate Sellars then you'll love Being There. But don't expect Clouseau, or even Strangelove. This is satire on a much more subtle level, and in my opinion it's the finest performance of his career. Lots of folks didn't (and still don't) seem to appreciate it, but it's one of those films I enjoy watching year after year.

And you're right -- this is a fun thread. I've been in lurking mode for a month or two now, and this brought me back into the fold.

No particular order:

King Pin
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
History of the World Part 1
Three Amigos
Vacation

And my Darkhorse favorite

Spies Like Us - growing up while the Cold War was still happenin. This was a funny once over on those Russian Commie Bastards Contained lots of immature comedy for an impressionable preteen. Hasn't aged well tho.

Just to sprinkle a little estrogen on this list:

Intolerable Cruelty
Legally Blonde (I often channel Elle Woods)
Saving Grace (brit flick)
Princess Bride
and Some Like it Hot

Mr Deeds is a current slapstick fave - possibly because the soundtrack is so good. I think that was most of the appeal of the Wedding Singer too, another perfect hung-over-Sunday-afternoon movie . . .

Surprised no one's mentioned any old Woody Allen ones. My favorites are the older ones.

Sleeper (who can forget the Orgasmatron)
Take the Money and Run
