I would be very grateful if you could tell me which films make your adolescent boys laugh the most.
Thanks :-)

The hangover, anything with Adam Sandler, Without A Paddle, Reeves and Mortimer - basically the films / TV shows I hate!

Hope he gets better soon.

How old? Because my 13 year old loves the box sets of The Inbetweners and Skins, but they really aren't suitable for 13 year olds blush. His older brother has them and I didn't realise he had watched them [bad mother emoticon].

He has also recently seen The Hangover and Stepbrother and lots of Family Guy.

His most recent favourite type of film are horror skits, like Sean of the Dead. He has a couple of those - if your son likes joke horror I can ask him the names. They are mostly 3 quid Tesco ones.

Hot Fuzz-gory but funny
Dodgeball, Kickass, Without a paddle. The Hangover
Bit worried that my son finds On the buses hilarious!

We go for old classics TBH -has he the patience for Ealing comedies like kind hearts and coronets, the lady killers etc also the old pink panther movies (though they are so dated now!).

Thanks everybody! You have given me some good guide lines there. It's for a friend's boy.

If it's a friend's boy don't get him The Inbetweeners without checking with his mum first unless he is over 16. Really, don't.

Not a film but The Big Bang theory is currently very popular with my boys.

Family Guy
Ferris Bueller's Day Off - esp since he's convalescing

Ferris bueller is good.
