Thanks for the replies! A lot of good ideas- it is hard to buy DVD's for someone else (unbiasedly!). Chris

Office Space Planes, Trains, Automobiles and a wholehearted second to Midnight Run.
I didn't do anything. I'm a nice man, I mind my own business. So you tell me that's that before I beat the hell from you. I have so much strength in me, you have no idea. I have a love in my life, it makes me stronger than anything you can imagine. I'd say that's that, matress man!

I don’t think I’ve seen any Laurel and Hardy yet. Or W.C. Fields.

For L&H, start off with 2-reelers like Two Tars and Big Business. Pack Up Your Troubles and Sons of the Desert are likely their best features.

For Fields, check out The Bank Dick and It's A Gift.

I love these best-of threads. By the time it has run its course, just about every film in the genre will have been recommended. (See previous threads on "best" horror or sci-fi or westerns.) You'd get the same results by accessing the "browse comedies" link at Amazon.

Bedazzled. The newer version takes the cake IMO. Also got a good laugh out of Meet The Parents, Deuce Bigelow, The Animal....

Maybe so, but I have sure gotten enough recommendations to make shopping a whole lot easier. Thanks again!

ReAnimator My Favorite Years I am a little surprised that no foreign flicks have been mentioned yet, just off the top of my head: Cousin, Cousine (French) - later remade by the same director as Cousins (Ted Danson, Isablle Rosinini) Tendre Poulet (French) - Also known as Dear Inspector. La Boum (French) - Madcap teenage slumber party, May be hard to fine. Women on the Verge (Spain)

M Hulot's Holiday, Tati's most accessible and physically funniest film, if not his greatest.

Any comedy by Billy Wilder and I.A. Diamond (even the bad ones). "Miracle Of Morgan's Creek" Dean and Jerry Films (Come on Paramount) Note: All the above have no fart jokes.

The Miracle of Morgan's Creek is the funniest movie ever made. Try it. (DVD next summer!) I laughed pretty hard during Meet the Parents Legally Blonde (for two recent laughfests). Probably the funnest time I ever had during a first-run movie was Animal House. I don't know if it's available on DVD or not.
