I think mine would be Planes, Trains, Automobiles.

I also loved Superbad, Anchorman and Trading Places.

Borat. I’ve seen it approx five times and every single time it gets belly laughs. I haven’t seen another movie that has made me laugh quite like that one.

Elf for Christmas. Anything Monty Python for the rest of the year. The Airplane ones crack me up too.

The return of the Pink Panther

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
The Inbetweeners (both)

With the kids - Toy Story! Actually lots of kids films that have humour than the kids don't understand

Top Secret, so glad someone else remembers it. Watched it again recently and it was just as funny.
Also watched Wayne's World again recently and was disappointed as it wasn't as funny as I remember. Still some laughs, must be my age smile

Oh and White Chicks

Pinklady301 Thu 07-Mar-19 00:43:10

Naked Gun 1 and 2! Not so much the 3rd one.

Also Dumb and Dumber, and Coming to America.

What we do in the Shadows.

Only film in a long time that really made me laugh. It's very silly.

ClinkyMonkey Thu 07-Mar-19 00:29:26

What About Bob?
Ace Ventura 2 - especially the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang scene!
Spinal Tap

Ah I forgot about Borat.. I did laugh a lot throughout that

Ribbonsonabox Thu 07-Mar-19 00:22:28

Parts of Tropic Thunder are hilarious but it drags as a whole film...
Happiness by Todd Solondz is the most funny film I have ever seen... it's very dark though, I was hysterical and horrified at the same time!

I do quite enjoy Anchorman as well! Parts of the inbetweeners movies were quite funny...
I did laugh a lot the first time I saw Zoolander

I prefer British humour but that seems to be best expressed in short bursts... I cant think of many film comedies which I found funny from the UK. Was very dissapointed with the Alan Partridge film and the Ab Fab film.

AliceAforethought Thu 07-Mar-19 00:21:56


The Jerk, of course! Been decades since I’ve seen that. “I was born a poor black child” 😂

Also forgot to mention Harold and Maude.

Tinkerbell456 Thu 07-Mar-19 00:10:54

Massive fan of anything Simon Pegg, the Pythons of course and also Eddie Izzard. Lots of faves actually, but these spring to mind. I am a Brit by birth. Do we have a different sense of humour to the US? I think we do.

Yet another vote for What we do in the Shadows. Thanks to me banging on about how good it is, my whole team at work say “werewolves not swearwolves” if any of us drop an f bomb 🤣🤣
Older favourites are already mentioned - Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Trading Places and Airplane. My absolute fav hasn’t been mentioned (though it is a bit un pc now) - The Jerk starring Steve Martin. I adore this film 😍😍

Step Brothers is the last funny film I watched which I could watch over and over again
