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 collegehumor.com and it is Jon Stewart's skit from the Emmys. Very funny stuff.

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

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.

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


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

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

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.

Wayne's World
Stardom
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!)

mrshife said...

I can't argue with that.

Tami said...

-Super Troopers
-Office Space
-Dodgeball
-Van Wilder

-Napoleon Dynamite
-A Dirty Shame

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

A fish called Wanda
