    Default Favorite Comedy (Of these)

    I am in the mood for a comedy, and have these ten options.
    Which one should I watch (What is your favorite comedy of these?)?

    I have the time to watch some of them but not all and I cannot decide- so help me out! (I have never seen any of them).

    I have to go with "Some Like It Hot". The entire movie is a classic, but watching Tony Curtis do his Cary Grant imitation is priceless.
    I love music. I want music. I need music.

    I selected Annie Hall. Honorable mention to Some Like it Hot, Groundhog Day and Blazing Saddles.

    Why can't you watch all 10? I assume you don't have a time deadline.

    I’ve only seen ‘Some Like It Hot’ which is brilliant.

    Well, I can watch all of them eventually but which one should I start with just for this week...

    I have only heard the grand total of ONE of those comedies! And that is Monty Python.

    Only my opinion, of course, but I wouldn't bother with Caddyshack - I just can't understand why people find it funny, although I appreciate the fact that it sends up golf and the social/career-climbing creeps that the pastime is riddled with. Maybe I'm biased because I'm not a fan of either Chevy Chase or Bill Murray (apart from when the latter played 'Big Ern' McCracken in Kingpin).
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Why did this not include a choice for

    Earnest Saves Christmas?

    I'd vote for most of these, except the Marx Brothers, whose comedy is far too dated for me. Caddyshack gets a "meh" from me too. And come to think of it, I don't know The Hangover.

    When pressed for one and one only, it had to be Brian. For 5hose offended by it, I should point out that he is not The Messiah. He is a very naught boy, though....
