    Yeah.

    And I don't get Dumb and Dumber. I was at a house party last weekend and when I went into the living room this was on. I really don't uderstand the appeal. There are decent film comedies such as Monty Python and Some Like It Hot, and then there are slapstick, gross-out comedies such as Anchorman and 40 Year Old Virgin, and while I can't respect them as films, they both made me laugh my ass off. D&D'er just of meanders in the middle of the road. Too few gags and too much inane crap. I dunno', I just kind of felt left out because everyone thought it was sheer hilarity and I'm like, "Huh?"

    *EDIT*: Not trying to insult anyone's choices, I just recently saw the movie for the first time and I'm kind of confused.


    I was kind of underwhelmed by Dumb & Dumber, as well. However, the scene where Lauren Holly playfully tosses a snow ball at Jeff Daniels who, in return, hits her in the face with a snow ball thrown as hard as he could, has me laughing just thinking about it.

    Maybe not all Guest's movies will hold up, but Spinal Tap is pretty old, at this point...

    Good call on the Big Lebowski...
    "El Duderino, if you're not into the whole brevity thing..."

    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.

    It surely must be the funniest moment in any film when the stage hand (is it Rawitch?), who is even too bad to act with this group of theatrical hams, but who has always dreamed of playing Shylock, gets the opportunity to recite in front of (a fake) Hitler: “When you us tickle, do we not laugh?”

    How "NPH" did not get an Oscar for his role in that is beyond me.

    Life Aquatic is also great, and I'd also like to echo the previous votes for Super Troopers...great stuff.

    Thorny: "Who wants a moustache ride?"

    German woman: "I do, I do!"

    German man: "I vant von too!"

    Life Aquatic, as well as Royal Tenenbaums, were done real well from a stylistic/design perspective.
