One comedy that was very popular at the time, is extremely highly regarded by critics, and led to one of the most successful TV series of all time... but which (correct me if I'm wrong) no one here has included on their lists:

 

M*A*S*H.

 

I have to admit, when I saw that film over ten years ago, I wasn't at all impressed with it. Ooh, they're talking over each other and they said "fucking" for the first time in a major studio picture! Innovative in 1970, but unremarkable today.

 

When it comes to military comedies, I preferred the Catch-22 movie that came out the same year, even though that's far from a great adaptation of the book.

Ruthless People is actually pretty good, and relatively obscure. One of the few comedy movies I first saw in the cinema. And I forgot to call out When Harry Met Sally.

 

Ugh. Did anyone have Gremlins? Back to the Future?

Bah never managed to get round to this but I’m shocked at the lack of any of the Carry On films..the early ones are brilliant.

 

 

Khyber, Screaming and Cleo are great comedies - the earliest ones are also pretty good social commentary. No Ealing Comedies, either - Kind Hearts and Coronets, Man in the White Suit, Passport to Pimlico, Lavender Hill Mob.

If you can get it done today then I can add your list as I’m out all day so won’t be finishing the spreadsheet.

And even then, I forgot Young Frankenstein, The Producers, Blazing Saddles and the first Austin Powers movie.

 

Edit: and Gilliam. Brazil, Time Bandits.

I re-watched a few of my past favorites to prepare my top 20. Previously, I would have put Blazing saddles in my top 10, but sad to say that I didn't find it particularly funny at all on this occasion.  

 

And how on earth did I forget Time Bandits!

I started cobbling a top 20 of my own together, and although I love Back to the Future I don’t think I’d include it. I’d rank them all purely based on their ability to make me laugh, not necessarily whether they’re great movies or not. Back to the Future is wonderful, exciting, one of the best family/adventure/sci-fi of all time, and it certainly is funny in places, but I don’t see it as a comedy as such. Tricky one.

 

Same with Ghostbusters I think. Again, very funny in places, but it takes a back seat to the sci-fi/fantasy stuff for me. It’s a better ‘movie’ than others I’d put on my list, but they make me laugh more.

29 Lists - 227 films.

 

All checked and list created.

 

I'm going to do the entire list of 227 films in order, but only brief comments on most of them.

 

I've seen everything in the top 20, but there are a couple in the top 50/people's 1st place picks that I want to watch this week.

Is it too late to throw After Hours in there, seeing as not a single person seems to have mentioned it and its exclusion would make me sad?

 

I wish I’d have noticed this topic earlier. I would have definitely put a list together.

I think the best idea might be for you to post your opinions on each. Like even if you hate whatever is at number 6 write what you don’t like about it. Will be more fun that way!

I'll do decent comments on the top 20 (or more), but not #212

Slight amendment to first results post as The Three Amigos was listed twice so I've tidied up the numbering above and edited the film from the 5 point list for it to appear a bit later.

 

Part Two - Films 177 to 148

 

8 Points (1 Pick) – Films 177 to 167

 

Rawson Marshall Thurber directs Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughan in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004). The last of the 3 Python films is the first to appear on the list as Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam direct themselves and the rest of the Pythons in The Meaning of Life (1983).  Robert Moore directs Peter Falk and Alec Guinness in Murder by Death (1976). Our first Zucker Brothers/Jim Abrahams film as Bette Midler and Danny Devito are Ruthless People (1986). Judd Apatow has a hit with his first film as Steve Carrell is the 40 Year Old Virgin (2005). Todd Phillips directs Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis suffering a darker (and nowhere as near as good as the first one) Hangover 2 (2011). I’m going to assume this is Blake Edwards, The Pink Panther (1963) with Peter Sellers and not the Steve Martin remake. Noah Baumbach directs Jeff Daniels and Laura Linney in The Squid and the Whale (2005). A Taika Waititi gets let loose on a big budget superhero film and does a great job as he directs Thor: Ragnarok (2017). Mike Clattenburg directs TV to the big screen flick, Trailer Park Boys: Countdown to Liquor Day (2009).   Robert Bierman directs Nicholas Cage and Jennifer Beals in Vampire’s Kiss (1988).

 

9 Points (1 Pick) – Films 166 to 160

 

Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini directs Paul Giamatti playing comic book writer, Harvey Pekar which also stars Pekar himself in American Splendour (2003).   A paring of Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy at the end of the 80s would have been a dream team for a comedy, by the end of the 90s it was potentially a bit of a nightmare as both men’s comedy film output had diminished considerably.  However, Frank Oz’s tale of movie making proved to be a great and funny return to form for both men in Bowfinger (1999) although arguably Murphy wouldn’t then make another truly decent comedy film for 20 years with Dolemite and Martin wouldn’t make one at all until switching to the small screen with Only Murders in the Building.  Anther great 80’s comedy pairing sees Walter Hill direct John Candy and Richard Pryor in Brewster’s Millions (1985).  It isn’t a classic, but it was just outside my own top 20, and it’s a great fun high concept comedy with a political message that resonates today. None of the Above indeed!.  Robert Townsend directs himself in Hollywood Shuffle (1987). Chris Sanders and Dean Debois give us some Disney alien anarchy in Lilo and Stitch (2002). I’m assuming this is Laurel and Hardy in The Music Box (1932). Finally, Gene Wilder directs himself and Kelly LeBrock in The Women in Red (1984).

 

And now we start to get to films on multiple lists.

 

9 Points (2 Picks) – Films 159 and 158

 

Lord and Miller take an old 80’s TV cop/High school drama and turn it into a very funny comedy with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street (2012) and Hill appears again a year later in Martin Scorsese’s tale of stockbroker excess (and then some) alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie in The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).  That makes 6 films for Jonah Hill so far (counting a brief cameo in 40 Year Old Virgin)

 

9 Points (3 Picks) – Film 157

 

Ben Palmer directs a successful transition to the big screen for The Inbetweeners (2011).

 

10 Points (1 Pick) - Films 156 to 152

 

John Landis sends John Belushi to college in Animal House (1978), Viggo Mortensen is Captain Fantastic (2016) in a film written and directed by Matt Ross. Kevin Smith takes on religion with Ben Affleck and Mat Damon in Dogma (1999). Danny Leiner asks Seann William Scott and Ashton Kutcher, Dude, Wheres My Car? (2000) and Louis Leterrier directs Sasha Baron Cohen and Mark Strong in Grimsby (2016).

 

10 Points (2 Picks) - Films 151 to 148

 

Jonathan Lynn directs the magnificent madcap murder mystery, Clue (1985) with Tim Curry and Christopher Lloyd. Next is Quentin Tarantino’s brilliant WW2 tale Inglorious Basterds (2009) with Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz.  Some Disney animation as Mark Dindal directs The Emperor’s New Groove (2000) and Ron Shelton directs Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes in White Men Can’t Jump (1992).

Eric Idle writes, stars and co-directs, with Gary Weis, Beatles send-up, The Ruttles: All You Need is Cash (1978). Nick Park and Steve Box direct Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005).

13 Points (2 Picks) -  Films 126 to 125

 

Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer direct and star alongside Andy Samberg in the very funny and criminally underseen, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016).  I’m assuming this is the original as Mel Brooks makes his directorial debut with The Producers (1967) starring Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel.

 

13 Points (3 Picks) - Films 124

15 Points (1 Pick) – Films 117 to 114

An excellent three films here. Sam Raimi remakes his first film with a bigger budget and more comedy to go with a lot of horror as Bruce Campbell faces off against the Evil Dead 2 (1987)  A live action Paddington (2014) film didn’t sound like a great idea, but Paul King directs Ben Wilshaw, Sally Hawkins and Hugh Bonneville in one of the best, warmest and funniest family films in decades.   Matthew Warchus directs Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton in a wonderful true tale of Gay and Lesbian activists from London supporting Welsh Miners during the 80’s in Pride (2014).

Tim Burton directs Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice (1988), Beetlejuice, Beetleju….. supported by Winona Ryder and Geena Davis in a brilliantly inventive and chaotic horror comedy.

Not enough John Candy.

 

He was in 3 films in that latest update - but if you mean not enough John Candy is going to be higher up in the list then I agree, but he does appear again later.
