I fancy having a good laugh this Christmas, anybody suggest some funny/hilarious films?
Just off the top of my head:
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Meet The Parents
Dumb And Dumber
What About Bob?
Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends
If you want a laugh, check out any of the following:
"Plan 9 From Outer Space"
"Midnight Run" (with Robert DeNiro)
"A Bug's Life" (GetThe R1 LImited Special Edition Double DVD version)
"The Simpsons: Season 1" (R1 as it's half the price of the UK version!)
"Four Weddings And A Funeral"
"Being John Malkovich"
Hope some of these are of use to you.
These should keep me chortling right thru to New Year!!
Evil Dead - Gross Horror, but possibly the funniest film I've ever seen - If you can cope with the blood.
Can't go wrong with :-
South Park The Movie
...although I would make sure Granny and the kids are asleep before putting them on...
This is Spinal Tap
Get yourself to the cinema to see the incredible 'Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back'. I saw a preview showing, and I'll be off to see it again on Friday. Easily Kevin Smith's best film yet, and the funniest (though rude) film I've seen in a long time. It's a rare comedy nowadays, where the humour is free and natural, instead of forced.
Failing that, Galaxy Quest is hilarious, Space Balls, Airplane, the Naked Guns and the Hot Shots films. Spoofs are great.
Almost forgot - Pearl Harbor, I laughed my ass off all the way through (even though I left two-thirds through).
Shrek, funniest thing I've seen in ages.
Of course! Shrek! Wonderful Shrek! How could I forget that?
Big trouble in little china
Kingpin was hilarious.
Oh yes - I forgot "There's Something About Mary". An excellent film, but best if you've never seen it before.
can i add to that any of evin smith's other films, to a leser extent chasing amy and to a greater extent mallrats.
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Army of Darkness
Hows about - High Anxiety, Raising Arizona, The producers, Young Frankenstein ?
Just pipped you to the post with Young Frankenstein.
National Lampoon's Class Reunion
Nutty Professor 1 & 2 (I know, I know - thought they'd be crap, but me and the missus laughed a lot)
Galaxy Quest, was not even funny!!
But these are funny:-
Still Crazy, 70's pop/rock group reform in the 90's, laugh-a-minute!!
Lethal Weapon 4, Joe Pesci and his mobile phone rant....
Any Only Fools and Horses series.....
Austin Powers (both)
Airplane (1 is better)
Blazing Saddles (my favourite because I dislike Westerns)
Fawlty Towers - you can't include this because you specifically asked for "films"
Hot Shots (both)
THE BIG LEBOWSKI - hilarious!!
Miss Congeniality funnier than I expected.
'Big Mommas House'
'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World'
'Some Like it Hot'
Rats just looking up how many Mad's in the film on IMDB and you got in before me.
Anyway what about The Dream Team.
Ruby quarts shades.
If you want laughs then get Happy Gilmore with Adam Sandler. What the heck, get all his films. You can't go wrong
All his films - even the Waterboy ?
try freddy got fingered and national lampoons animal house oh an scary movie RUN BITCH RRRUUUUUNNNNN i dare you not to be laughing hysterically watching any of these films
But all he does is shout in most of his films? AND Little Nicky is one of the worst films I have ever seen.....
These are also funny:
Dirty Rotten Scoundrals
Grosse Point Blank
If you want to see a film that'll have you clutching your belly in glee- check out ' the Brain from Planet Arous' - Ok , so its not a comedy but this had me in stitches when I watched it last night!
Also, check out one of the best (black) comedies ever- The Ladykillers(1955).
Cheers for all the suggestions!!
Looks like my credit card is gonna take a hammering!
