The trouble with comedies is that my sense of humour changes as time goes by. I used to love the Pink Panther films with Peter Sellars but watching one recently I hardly laughed and thought it was all slapstick. The same with the 'classics' when I was in my teens – e.g. Porky's, Batchelor Party etc.

However, my favourite comedies that have stood the test of time include

La Grande Vadrouille (released in UK/US as "Don't Look Now – We're Being Shot At") which would be top of my list. Sadly, this title is very hard to get hold on in English and on DVD

And in no particular order

Trading Places
The Breakfast Club
The Blues Brothers
Coming To America
Dr Strangelove
The Apartment
Life of Brian
A Fish Called Wanda
Airplane
The Naked Gun
Foul Play
Private Benjamin, and
Planes, Trains and Automobiles

That is very true. I used to like Revenge of the Nerds II when I was 13. When I watched it when I was 23 I thought it was stupid. I still love the first one.

License to Drive

In 6th grade I thought that film was the whip. I loved it except for the part when they destroyed that Cadillac.

Quoting Kaitak (Reply 12):
Dr. Strangelove

I didn't think of that one. I love Sterling Hayden's character. "I don't deny women, but I do deny them my essence"

I also get a kick out of Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski.

Quoting BCAL (Reply 10):
The Blues Brothers

I wish I could go to Bob's Country Bunker. That is my kind of bar. Any bar that has Falstaff on draft and a Huber Beer neon sign is awesome.

To me the humor has a clear and good flow to it that all builds on you and milks it for all its worth until the end.
