Rat Race, I truely LOL the whole movie. Although hit and miss I enjoyed Goldmember last night. The Emperor's New Groove. I don't see what's funny about "Some Like it Hot" Must be a generation gap thing.

The rumor at alt.movies.silent is that the sound Laurel & Hardy films will be coming out on DVD in R1 next year. So that should take care of Xmas 2003...

For this year, though, since your father-in-law is apparently a guy Posted Image you can't go wrong with one of the Columbia collections of Three Stooges shorts. No guy worth his salt can resist a good woo woo and an eyepoke. Stay away from the non-Columbia ones, which are poor quality, though.

Airplane and Naked Gun. Can't think of too many others though. Comedy on tv is a different matter however. Most episodes of Only Fools and Horses, The Royle Family and Fawlty Towers to name three. As far as US tv goes i only really found Roseanne funny and occasionally Friends! No offence, but you guys don't make very good comedy shows.

MEET THE PARENTS!!! The DVD has a couple commentaries & features. The movie was so funny (and I like gross-out comedies, but I still enjoyed this greatly) that I was laughing at parts that I shouldn't have laughed at because I was laughing at something that happened 5 minutes earlier!

"The Critic", an animated short film narrated by Mel Brooks circa the 1960s. Also "The Dove" a short Bregmanesque film with double-talk Swedish language and English subtitles. Anybody old enough to remember these?

Depends on if you want classic comedy, stupid comedy, or new comedy. Classic His Girl Friday Arsenic and old Lace most Cary Grant movies are good choices Stupid Any Pink Panther movie with Peter Sellers, esp Pink Panther Strikes Again. Spaceballs History of the World Part 1 Blazing Saddles There's something about Mary Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail The Blues Brothers Mallrats Tommy Boy Half Baked The Naked Gun Airplane! New Rush Hour 1 and 2 MIB 1 Super Troopers This should get you started

>>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. << It's on DVD and there's a collector's edition, another one that I am surprised it wasn't mentioned until so late. It put John Landis on the map and kind of started the whole "Frat house" movie industry.

I usually stay away from "awesome" movies. The word is so over-used it means nothing to me anymore Posted Image

Although not films, for low-down silly, "dirty" stuff you can't beat Benny Hill. True burlesque, slapstick humor.

Wow! fifty-something responses and no Raising Arizona!

You guys are slipping. Posted Image

Gale: Alright ya' hayseeds, it's a stick-up. Everybody freeze. Everybody down on the ground.
Old Man In Bank: Well, which is it young feller? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? Mean to say, if'n I freeze, I can't rightly drop. And if'n I drop, I'ma gonna be in motion. You see--
Gale: Shut up!
Old Man In Bank: Okay then.
Gale: Everybody down on the ground!
Evelle: Y'all can just forget that part about freezin' now.
Gale: Better still to get down there.
Evelle: Yeah, y'all hear that, don't ya'?
[Everybody lays down. Gale looks at the now-empty teller windows.]
Gale: Shit! Where'd all the tellers go?!
Teller's voices: We're down here sir.
Evelle: They're on the floor as you commanded, Gale.

Ernst Lubitsch's Trouble in Paradise and The Shop Around the Corner are simply peerless and both available on excellent DVDs. Even though it's not a comedy per se, The Blob (the original 1958 version with Steve McQueen) never fails to have me in stitches.
