agree about "The Big L" ^ - the Coen brothers are great

"Oh Brother" also very funny and "Raising Arizona"

Jesus Camp. Seriously . . .

Also, has anyone here seen the original "Reefer Madness" propaganda film? It's actually pretty chuckle-tastic.

I really think it's silly to pretend that the Monty Python movies don't win this competition though. Monty Python is the Michael Jordan of comedy.

Ah, Reefer Madness, an excellent example of how spectacularly hysterical, ill-informed propaganda backfires when unleashed upon a non-credulous public. Too bad the morality-mongers never learn.

Although some of my friends did have "maniacal laughter".

:? That movie scared me just a wee bit

If I had to choose from recent movies, I would say Superbad, Juno, and Knocked Up. However, I did just watch Scream today, and that was pretty funny too. I cannot think of the others...
May the glorious Flying Spaghetti Monster bathe you in his wondrous Mercy, Love, and Garlic Sauce!
May He bless MP3 Fiesta and their noodlicious music bargains!
May He also watch over Roffleopolis and touch it with his marvelous Noodly Appendages.

The original Pink Panther and its sequels. Pure comedy slapstick at its best.

New one wasn't too bad.

I just saw Kung Fu Hustle for the first time. I laughed my ass off.

I love Stephen Chow. The guy is a genius. Have you seen Shaolin Soccer? Also hysterically funny.
