It is hard to pick a favorite. let's just drop a grenade on this whole thread.

Is this politically incorrect?

Cheech and Chong are certainly dated today, but at the time, I thought they were pretty funny. I guess you can tell that I'm easily amused.
Perhaps that's why I spend so much time on this board.

Little Nicky
Young Frankenstein
Napoleon Dynamite
Hot Fuzz
Shaolin Soccer
The Original Pink Panther

I found all of those hysterical.

Its hard to pick a favorite, but if I had too, I'd probably say Ace Ventura, both are equally hilarious. Jim Carrey at his finest.

Some others:

Run Ronnie Run
Half baked
All the Monty Python flicks

and so many more

I have a lot of favorites and will list them. I also didn't really like a lot of Steve Martin's early work. I think the humor tried to hard to be silly, although I still find parts of them amusing. Mel Brooks' early work was his best, with his later work being mildly amusing as there is no such thing as a terrible MB movie.

Mel Brooks:
Blazing Saddles
Silent Movie
Young Frankenstein

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Steve Martin:
LA Story
All of Me

Airplane! (silly jokes and groaners, but funny and Leslie Nielsen was a serious actor until this movie)
S.O.B. (A hilarious movie about show business)
Victor, Victoria (a wonderful farce with the late great Robert Preston)
Any early Marx Brothers movie (many injokes for its time)
Mad4 World (loved it as a kid, appreciate it as an adult)
The Naked Gun Series (Leslie Nielsen is hilarious)

There are many others I can't think of, and many of the ones the other posters posted I liked.

The most recent film I've seen where I nearly wet myself was Knocked Up. The best scene for me was at the circus in Vegas and they're tripping on shrooms.

"No! Don't clap! You'll make him fall!!!"
Man, I laughed so loud at that.

Also, when they're in the hotel room and that guy (can't remember his name) is loving the chairs, and then he gets "dark vibes" from one of them!

Another of my favorites is Dogma

This scene cracks me up.

It's Buddy Christ...

The old Marx's bother movies always make me laugh no matter how many times I've seen them. Classic jocularity at it's best.

....and running in a close second place is the always irreverent Monty python movies. one point in my life I could rattle off every line of Monty python and the holy grail like I wrote it. A few times I actually had dreams of monty python skits, actors included. I wish I wrote them down,they were so funny they woke me up.

Blazing Saddles....seriously, you can't go 2 minutes without laughing at something. Soda came out of my nose the first time I saw it....

Mel Brooks is a genius of course....I mean Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs, etc.

I love the Airplane! movies too....big fan of spoofs, for just really laugh out loud funny...

For more "grown-up" comedy, Wedding Crashers was the first movie to make me laugh hard in a long time, as was Superbad and Role Models.

If you ever have the chance, and you're a kid of the 80's, rent Wet Hot American Summer....great cast, and man does that one bring you back...

You got it yet??
Tommy Boy is an absolutely great comedy film.
Chris Farley is like the thinking man's Jack Black.

Tommy: "Does this suit make me look fat?"
Richard: "No, your face does."

Those kinds of movies just rub me the wrong way...
Tommy Boy, Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber...I'd rather take a shotgun to them (as a mercy killing) than watch them...they're just too unbelievably stupid....

In a farce (like Airplane), where everything is silly, it's one thing, but when only one character is the farce...just doesn't seem to work for me...but that's just a personal bias (their box office success indicates I'm in the minority)..

A Dirty Shame by John Waters, with an amazing cast starring Johnny knoxville...a funny film about head injury causing sex addiction(not so off the wall)

Johnny on John

>> Jackass star/gay icon Johnny Knoxville talks about starring in John Waters' A Dirty Shame


The first thing that strikes you about Johnny Knoxville when you sit down to talk with him is just how damn sexy he is. Pumping up his latest project at the Toronto International Film Festival, he's wearing worn Levi's, a ripped shirt, tube socks with blue and yellow stripes and torn up runners. Then he smiles with that toothy, raunchy grin and starts talking about all those gay fans.

"Yeah, Jackass was real gay," he says, laughing. "Out magazine gave me the coolest straight guy of the year award a few years back, and The Advocate just put me on their cover - I'm wearing a white sailor's outfit. I guess I have become a gay icon. I wore rainbow flags on my helmet in the Jackass movie. How do you get away from it? Ten guys, mostly naked, touching each other, things going in and out of holes. How do you run away from it? You don't! You champion it!"

Knoxville is still remembered primarily as the creative force behind Jackass, the MTV series and feature film phenomenon, despite his having launched a successful film acting career. Now he's done what many fans might have considered inevitable: Knoxville is starring in the new John Waters film, A Dirty Shame. Knoxville and Waters, two of the most famous gross-out artists in pop culture history, joining forces? It's a marriage made in heaven - or hell, depending on who you're rooting for in the upcoming American election.

"When I was 13 I saw my first John Waters movie," Knoxville recalls. "It was Pink Flamingos. I was like, ‘Oh my god!' You don't get a lot of entertainment like that back home in Tennessee. I became an instant fan. To get to work with him is beyond any expectations I could have had growing up. He's one of my heroes. The fact that he really liked Jackass and called us sexual anarchists - that's like being knighted, when John Waters gives you a title."
