Good call on the Big Lebowski...

Find myself watching Wet Hot American Summer over and over. Highly recommended, especially if you liked The State/Stella.
Royal Tenenbaums (I'm not trying to be uppity or smart--it's high-larious).
Unintentional comedy: Commando. The opening scenes where Schwarzennegger eats ice cream, reads teen magazines, and frolics with a deer with his daughter, Alyssa Milano, are fantastic.
Semi-intentional comedy--watch "Dude, Where's My Car" with the commentary on... this has gotten less funny as Kutcher has become more ubiquitous and I've gotten intoxicated less often, but it's still good.
While we're on intoxication, Dazed and Confused...
If I had to pick just one? Probably Caddyshack. "I want a hot dog, and a hamburger, and a milkshake..."
Funny you should mention one of Wes's films. I walked and sat in on my brother watching Rushmore
the other day. For as much flack as Anderson gets for being pretentious (read: from people who don't get the subtleties of his character portraits) it had a huge number of laugh-out-loud moments, with some amazing physical humour. See: Herman (Bill Murray) running off into the woods after his "conversation" with Rosemary (Olivia Cross) and the part in which he's reaching into the back of the car trying to hit his meathead kid. Hilarious stuff.
Also, on the topic of Royal Tenenbaums
(and physical humour): I love the part when a coked-up Owen Wilson sneaks out of the window and Gene Hackman is shouting at him. He is shirtless and has that face paint on, and he squints at Hackman and reaches into the sky...lol! I die laughing just thinking of that. So random.
