What is the funniest movie you have ever seen?

Asked by lanahopple (453 points ) December 18th, 2009

I’m having a movie night with my best guy friend and whoever brings the funniest movie wins.

Are there any really funny, more modern movies?

I’m partial to “The Wedding Singer”.

And I hate Adam Sandler.

Monty Python’s, Search for the Holy Grail. Years and years and two purchases of the movie later and it still facinates and entertains me like nothing else ever has.
Guys love this movie!

I always loved the Airplane movies. So many “serious” older actors in there doing almost slapstick comedy. It’s just a silly movie and that always makes me laugh.

The Hangover.

My wife’s sister laughed so hard when she saw There’s Something About Mary, that she blew blood vessels in both her eyes!

Love “50 first dates”, this is one that I can watch over and over again.

Superbad would have to definitely be up there for me. How could you not love McLovin!

“I always loved the Airplane movies. So many ‘serious’ older actors in there doing almost slapstick comedy.”

The first one is also one of my all-time favorites. :)
I’m sure you enjoyed seeing June Cleaver speaking Ebonics. ;)

Wedding Crashers and Old School. Especially for those of us 30+, there is just so much material in those movies!

@Jewel I love Monty Python and the search for the Holy Grail also! I also enjoy any movie with Adam Sandler, Will Ferell, and Jack Black…any movie with the well-known ‘funny people.’

Shaun of the Dead

The Don’t Stop Me Now scene is amazing!

A Night at the Opera with the Marx brothers

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

“Young Frankenstein” cracks me up As do alot of Monty Python films :)

aprilsimnel's avatar

Blazing Saddles. And Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

I swear, if Mel Brooks or John Cleese ever have a bad day, they should come to Fluther and type “funniest movies ever” in the search box. They’d feel 100% better straightaway with all the lurve they get here!

“You’d do it for Randolph Scott!”
“RANDOLPH SCOTT!”

Airplane. The first one. Gets me very time.

Animal House
and not just because I was in a fraternity like that in the late sixties, and we lived through it and no one is still in jail.

Death at a Funeral. Hands down the funniest movie I have ever seen. I LOVED it! Laughed so hard I broke a blood vessel in my right eye, bruised a forehead wrinkle (it got trapped in another wrinkle and I’m only 32 my face must have been a fright while laughing) and wet my pants. But all in all it was an excellent experience.

Shaun of the Dead. The Don’t Stop Me Now scene is amazing!

What scene is that? I’ve seen that movie many times but don’t recall anyone saying that.

The Big Lebowski

I enjoy screwd with norm mcdonald and dave chappelle but I also enjoy fear and loathing in Las Vegas

Liar, Liar with Jim Carrey one of the greatest physical comedy actors stands out, bathroom scene is hilarious but there are so many other great ones too.

Funniest Christmas movie would obviously to me have to be National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Chevy Chase is such a fantastically funny actor.

Disney’s UP

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@FutureMemory That scene is near the end of the movie in the Winchester pub, when the jukebox starts playing Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now and they are fighting zombies. One of my favorites.

Vintage55's avatar

“The Out of Towners” with Sandy Dennis, Jack Lemmon (Paramount, 1970)
is one.

The Money Pit

sjmc1989's avatar

Oooh thought of another one Funny Farm has a special place in my heart. I know you said modern movies but it is hilarious sometimes you just need to go with the classics!

SirGoofy's avatar

All of the Ace Ventura – Pet Detective flicks!!

@sjmc1989
McLovin’ ruled.

SeventhSense's avatar

LMAO..and Jonah Hill is another one. He was great in Funny People. Much funnier than the trailer gives it credit for. One of the funniest movies in a long time.
Funny is a funny word.

sjmc1989's avatar

Yes Jonah is hilarious! I haven’t seen Funny People yet. I’ll have to get it this weekend I need a good funny movie right about now.

SeventhSense's avatar

Definitely worth it. Adam Sandler was very good in it too. I was never a huge fan but he’s gotten a lot better. I liked his jaded character go figure :P
Seth Rogan, Jason Schwartzman, Jonah Hill were all great.

Gokey's avatar

I changed my mind. Buffalo ‘66 is hysterical.

FutureMemory's avatar

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities Oh yeah…“kill the Queen!” I love the part during that scene when the zombified pub owner is going after the girl, but she puts up such a fight that he turns around to go after someone else…as if he was thinking “forget this one, she’s too much trouble”.

downtide's avatar

Hot Fuzz.
And if you want an oldie, Once Bitten. This was Jim Carrey’s first movie.

Austinlad's avatar

“It’s a Gift” with W.C. Fields. Every “bit” is hilarious—from Fields trying to sleep on a hammock on the back porch to his trying to guide a blind man with a cane through his sundries store. Full of great one-liners.

HANGOVER
I just rented this new release February 2010, and it’s brilliant!
We laughed all the way through the movie.
