Amazon Women on the Moon. What is the point of this movie? Who cares! It is too funny to worry about the plot!

Not exactly a feature-length film, but the animated short "The Cat Came Back" by the National Film Board of Canada was one of the funniest 10 minutes of my life. Great little cartoon

Hmmm. Did love "Amazon Women on the Moon". "History of the World Part I" is a classic, as is "Animal House". "Something About Mary"? "Kingpin"? Hmmmmmm. Guess I gotta give it to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

Probably cuz I haven't seen much, I figure anything with Jim Carrey and Walter Mathau (sp?) has laughs. IMO, Adam Sandler seems like a jerk, funny when due, still a jerk.

I especially give props to "Dennis the Menace" , "Ace Ventura 2" and "Dumb & Dumber"

BTW, which character was "dumber"? I mean who, Floyd or Harry?

I guess I'm only the third person on this forum that has seen "The God's Must be Crazy." Sad really because it is funnier than anything mentioned here. "Airplane" comes close though.

Who mentioned "Something about Mary?" You were joking, right? Please tell me you were.

@ dripstick

"The Party" with Peter Sellers - you are right, that is a really funny movie.
"Hrundi V. Bakshi" allone in the hollywood party. Lots of gags in this sarcastic and ironic look at Hollywood parties and its characters (the fading cowboy star, the italian/latin bombshell, the starlets, the highbrow senator's wife, the affected phony princess, the stuffy party hostess, etc.).......dai - dai

For anyone who hasn't seen "The Party", I think you should rent it. One of Blake Edwards' better efforts.

Zauberfloete:

The best gag of all is where Sellers starts playing around with the control panel, discovers the PA system, and starts making bird noises and muttering "num num...birdie num nums" while stunned guests look around.  Laugh out loud

The dinner table scene is a riot, too. Too bad Hollywood rarely makes any really funny movies anymore. Most just follow a cookie-cutter format.
