Comedy Meme

As first seen at Phantom's, from the Rough Guide to Comedy Movies. The ones I've seen are in bold.

I think I need to explain that, aside from Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask, I hate watching Woody Allen act in movies (love his stand-up though!). Somehow he just grates on me like fingernails on a chalkboard. So I haven't marked any of his movies on this list. But I loved Alice, mostly because he let someone else play him.

Also, I'm disappointed that Young Frankenstein and The Twelve Chairs are not on this list. And Where is The Princess Bride?

* Airplane!
* All About Eve (but I own it, how weird is that? I'm gonna have to get on the ball.)
* Amelie
* Annie Hall
* The Apartment
* Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
* Blazing Saddles
* Bringing Up Baby
* Broadcast News
* Caddyshack
* Le diner de con
* Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
* Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
* Duck Soup
* Ferris Bueller's Day Off
* Four Weddings and a Funeral
* The General
* Ghostbusters
* The Gold Rush

* There's Something About Mary

I love, Love, LOVE, Some Like It Hot! Just the thought of Jack Lemmon tottering around on those heels makes me giggle.

Oh, and I'll bring you my DVD of Rushmore next time we get together... after Turkey Day?

But wait a second. WHERE THE HECK IS NAPOLEON DYNAMITE? I'm also quite partial to "Elf."
