Greatest Comedy Movies Ever

23 10 2010

To me comedy is the rope line to us humans to drowning in life , some movies are awesome some are awful ( adam sandler im looking at you ) but some are legendary and everlasting , heres a list of the greatest works and the best things that happened to comedy beside me .

Anchorman The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (2004)

first things first will ferrel is not a good actor but whenever he’s around adam mckay he’s a legend ( talladega nights . step brother ) the sexism in this movie and the macho jokes are over the top , and typical of men of the 70’s yet writer adam mckay perfected it with a most perfect cast you can get for a comedy movie and a powerful cameos .

Young Frankenstien (1974)

one of mel brooks finest works ever , its the ultimate throw back to those monster movies of the early 40’s and 50’s the movie was shot in a low budget form and with black and white which seemed odd but its perfected the feel of the sleazy horror flicks , with an amazing cast and Igor the best sidekick in any movie .

I Dare You Not To Laugh !

Dr.Strangelove : Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb (1964)

another masterpiece shot in black and white featuring the great late Petter Sellers its our first dark comedy movie in this list and not the last im sure ,directed by the great Stanley Kubrick  this movie makes a nuclear war between russia and america during the cold war so much fun with witty dialogue and funny characters and awkard and stupid situations .

Airplane ! (1980)

one of the finest works for the amazing spoof trio Jim Abrahams , David Zucker And Jerry Zucker  ( Top Secret , Naked Gun Trilogy , Hot Shots , Scary Movie 4 ) this movie shines with jokes and spoofing other movies of the 80’s its so filled with jokes you have to re watch it atleast 2 times to get all the jokes and references this movie is a bit offensive but it keep it tacky somehow , this is the best comedic performance for leslie neilsen with his ” please dont call me shirley ” line .

Shiiiiit, maaaaan. That honky muf’ be messin’ mah old lady… got to be runnin’ cold upside down his head, you know?

Shaun Of The Dead ( 2004 )

im a big fan of British comedy but i have never seen it so perfectly done in this movie , the cold one liners to the funny situations the only thing i can say its a pure masterpiece and it will be matched in our generation of comedian , simon pegg and nick frost carried out the scenes with an amazing transitions and kept the plot relevant .

ps: if im gushing too much i dont give a damn , its my favorite zombie / comedy movie 😛

Mars Attack ! (1996 )

Tim burton doing a comedy movie ! strangely enough he pulled it with a strong ensemble cast and young actors ,its a funny spoof of the those alien movies in the 60’s as shown in the intro of the movie , even the shape of the alien saucers are a total throw back to them, but the cake in this movie have to be jack nicholson he had such a strong screen presence . 

Jack Nicholson Creeping People Since 1980

Monty Python And The Holy Grail  (1975)

And the best for last , the legendary Monty python series is without any introductions one of the best comedy series ever ( the meaning of life  , flying circus ,life of brian )  this movie will test your sanity and test your sense of humor , its so crazy and outrageous your are bound to laugh , it gets you in the credits and keeps the insanity going all movie long , its will scramble your head and serve it to you  .
