Funniest movie of all time. - Page 4

post #46 of 131
Zoolander is also pretty damn funny, and should be the official comedy for this style message board. Too many funny quotes to list.

Actually it should be American Psycho which is incredibly funny, especially to people on SF.

True my man, AP is a great movie. Very very dark comedy and insightful perspective on the entire 80's wealthy culture. I've screened this movie many times at my house for friends - the smart ones caught on that a lot of it was done in sarcasm/parody, but the less-than-smart ones viewed it as a gory and sick movie. "I don't want you to get drunk, but that's a very fine Chardonay you're not drinking" "Don't just stare at it, eat it!" "You can always be thinner" "Speaking of reasonable, only $520" (for a lunch for three/four people)

for a long time my gold standard was MP's Holy Grail, mainly because people who know it can recite just a single line to each other and start laughing. also it's a seminal part of geek culture. i have to say i don't really have much desire to watch it again now, though.



some like it hot is a real classic, and sexy, too. i fell in love with marilyn.

one noone has mentioned yet is the princess bride, which, while sappy and not totally falling-down hilarious, nevertheless has some great quotable lines.


Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

Good call on Planes, Trains and Automobiles (love that movie). The Princess Bride was also great.

Also, Take the Money and Run from Woody Allen (particularly the scene where he has the bank patrons vote on which gang should rob them).

As for Wes Anderson, I really liked Rushmore, I was really lukewarm on The Royal Tenenbaums, and I really hated (and I mean HATED) Life Aquatic.

Airplane was great.

The Naked Gun I really liked, as I did TNG 33 1/3 (The Final Insult!)

The Da Vinci Code was pretty hilarious -- a howler every minute and Ian McKellen being very thoroughly camp.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels I think is very funny...

Les Comperes...

Zorro the Gay Blade

Excellent call Dusty...Love and Death is my favorite of all of WA's movies...A few of the choice moments

Soldier: Well, what did you think of the play?
Boris: Oh it was weak, I was never interested. All though the part of the doctor was played with gusto and furve and the girl had a delightful cameo role. A puckish satire of contemporary mores. A drole spoof aimed more at the heart than the head.

Sonja: There are many different kinds of love, Boris. There's love between a man and a woman; between a mother and son...
Boris: Two women. Let's not forget my favorite.

Sonja: Uh... this Anton Inbedkov, he is a good shot isn't he?
Boris: I'm afraid so.
Sonja: Well, since this may be your last night on Earth, let's go back to my room and make love.
Boris: Oh... nice idea! I'll bring the soy sauce.

Soldier: He was from my village. He was the village idiot.
Boris: Yeah, what did you do, place?

Boris: I got a perfect build for clothes. I'm a twenty-eight dwarf.

As well as some already mentioned, I would add

Murder by Death (a Neil Simon farce of the famous fictional detectives)
The Imposters (another all-star cast)

No one has mentioned Spaceballs? Unbelievable.

When will then be now?

Soon!

Especially considering that we are talking about 80's money...I mean $520 for 4 people is a lot in 2006, but 20 years ago...
