Best comedy movies from Hollywood

Starting this thread to make a list of comedy movies that every movie lover should see

Note: list the movies that you have seen only, not just cntl-c and cntl-v from some sites off the internet

My List

Animal House 4.5/5
Dr. Strange love (tough a dark comedy, got to appreciate the director Stanley kubrick for having guts to come up with a movie like this in cold war time) 5/5
Young Frankenstein 4/5

When Harry met Sally 4/5

Great Dictator 4.5/5

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3.75/5 (Biggest Independent Film(Romantic Comedy) of 21st century) (Quote from Wiki Page: with a $5 million budget, it ultimately grossed over $368 million worldwide)


Sarv_Shakthimaan's List
My cousin Vinny 4/5

MotoOwoner's List
Gods Must Be Crazy 4/5.


For lovers of Loud Comedy:

Me, MySelf And Irene 3.5/5

Mask 4/5

Porky's 4.5/5 Its the baap of american pie movies. see it along with your male buddies for maximum fun. Check the clip (NSFW) Link

Porky's II 3.5/5 Not as humorous as part-1, but it has its share of laughs

Super Troopers 3.5/5 Hilarious Movie and more over directed by a Tamil tambi Jay Chandrashekhar

New Additions Nov-09

Breakfast club : I am not sure if u can call it comedy, but more of a drama, anyways i came to know about this movie from the DVD of Animal house which i believe is a 100% comedy. so for me this one too is comedy, and as the DVD says is a part of three movie triology(Breakfast Club, Wierd Science and Sixteen candles)

Breakfast Club 3.0/5

Weird Science 3.0/5


Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Manhines 4/5



P.S: Any movie listed in the following posts wold be appended to this post after i watch and rate them .

Re: Best comedy movies from Hollywood

Saw Dr. Strangelove... either didn't understand it or was a lousy comedy.

The ones I like,

The Russians Are Coming
The Party
Any of the original Pink Panther movies (in fact, any Peter Seller movie)

more as I think of them...

Re: Best comedy movies from Hollywood

I was wondering if we could start a series on each and every category of movies.

Next category from my side would be on Best War movies.

Thumbs up Re: Best comedy movies from Hollywood

Ruthless People

This is one movie you will not regret watching. Infact you will laugh at it all.

It stars Danny Devito, Bette Middler and Judge Rinehold (the cop from Beverly Hills Cop).

Judge Reinhold is also funny on the Seinfold episode... the up-close-and-personal guy

Should we include animated too here? If so, then there is a whole new list for that... let me know.

I watched the movie "Russians are coming" but did not find it comic anywhere near Dr. Strangelove.

see it from the time perspective. it was released in 1964 ,just two years after the Cuban missile incident.
Cuban missile incident scared the $hit out of american people and releasing a movie that makes fun of nuclear standout is not easy and over that to make it a big hit is nearly impossible for anyone but the one and only stanley kurbick.

P.S: you can see the great acting of George C. Scott who after this movie went on to play the role of patton in the Movie patton and won the oscar for best acting.

Maybe that's it. I was not even aware of the Cuban missile incident till recently (that Kevin Costner movie... which I just saw the first 5 minutes before turning off). So, maybe will have to see it again to get it. The Russians Are Coming is on similar lines and the comedy is more obvious... the anguish of the villagers, the scared russians... it all gells together... and makes me watch it again and again (4-5 times till now).

Edit: more to the list,

See No Evil, Hear No Evil (or something like that)
