What was the Funniest movie of all time?

Postby Rainswept » Sun Jan 06, 2008 6:01 am

Someone asked me this today and I didn't have an answer. After thinking for a while, I decided it might be between

Dumb & Dumber

and

The Jerk

I felt sad not mentioning Blazing Saddles, Borat, and Army of Darkness as well. I imagine many of you have other ideas, so let's hear them.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I would agree with Dumb and Dumber or any one of three Monty Python films.

Brian

Postby black bart » Thu Jan 10, 2008 8:11 pm

Out of the Python films I think my favourite is 'The Life of Brian'...it was banned in Swansea when it came out!
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.
