What makes you laugh out loud during a movie?

Asked by Unbroken (10279 points ) December 3rd, 2012

I was recently perusing my collection of “comedies” and find they have very little in common. They encompass almost all genres, most don’t have shared actors or directors, they communicate humor quite differently. They deal with very different subjects with varying degrees of realism?
Are there common elements, beyond the ability to evoke laughter, that a movie worthy of the label comedy?
What are they?
What classification system do you use to consign a movie as comedic?
