Gimme Seven

I have two things working against me today -- It's Friday and a lot of people are turning their attention to Hurricane Rita so I will keep things short and sweet. So gimme me your top 7 comedies. You can do more or less but just give me a list of movies that make you laugh.
I'll go first.
  1. "Animal House"
  2. "Caddyshack"
  3. "Old School"
  4. "The Big Lebowski"
  5. "O Brother Where Art Thou"
  6. "Wedding Crashers"
  7. "Sorority Boys"

I know that #7 might be a head scratcher for some of you but that movie just cracks me up.

P.S. I just found this on and it is Jon Stewart's skit from the Emmys. Very funny stuff.


  1. Fun idea for a Friday! Here's my list:

    Withnail & I
    Local Hero
    Young Frankenstein (must be watched with a crowd, on your own, somehow...meh)
    The Full Monty
    The Snapper

  2. I seriously forget about Slapshot, and it is a classic. I will have to look up a couple of those because I am not familiar with them, Withnail & I and The Snapper.

  3. you forgot the best movie on earth, Bad Santa...

    Thank you for the are linked to me now, baby...

    Hey, Andraste comes here..she kicks ass..

  4. I knew I should have made it a top 10 list but some movie is always going to miss the cut. Princess Bride and Office Space are also excellent choices. Bad Santa maybe the top 20. I think Billy Bob creeped me out so much in that movie that it tainted my feelings for the film.

  5. Wayne's World
    Just Married
    School of Rock
    Napoleon Dynamite
    Melvin Goes to Dinner
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    (Hehe, Bad Santa didn't make the cut, but if we had to do top 7 movie scenes, "Fuck me Santa fuck me Santa fuck me Santa" would be high on the list!)

  6. I can't argue with that.

  8. Yes, definitely DO look up Withnail & I and The Snapper. HIGH-Larious!

  9. I just threw them in the Netflix queue. I will let you know what I think.

    This is Spinal Tap!
    Office Space
    Raising Arizona

    3) Spies Like Us
    4) National Lampoon: Christmas Vacation
    5) Plains, Trains, and Autombiles
    6) Ghost Busters
    7) Super Troopers

    But there are a ton of others right on the cusp. It's such a hard questions.

  13. Ahhh, Spinal Tap and Raising Arizona are both very worthy. Damn I forget those.

    FBI Man: What was the baby wearing when he was kidnapped?
    Nathan Arizona Sr.: A dinner jacket - whaddaya think? He was wearin' his damn jammies! They had Yodas 'n shit on 'em!

    Ramathorne: Do you know how fast you were going?

    High kid: But isn't the speed limit 65?
    Ramathorne: Yes it is. But do you know why we're pulling you over? (Holds the bag of weed up). Littering.

    Meet the Parents -

    Greg Focker: You can milk just about anything with nipples.
    Jack Byrnes: I have nipples, Greg, could you milk me?

  15. Shit I forgot Stripes too. I love Bill Murray. I own The Man Who Knew Too Little, that should tell you much I love Bill Murray.

  16. Christopher Guest needs his own category. This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, Mighty Wind. Jesus, the man's a genius.
