nice list, b212 ..though I must ponder out loud
I don't get Love Actually, I thought it would be some sort of romantic comedy guilty pleasure. But instead I found it eternally boring and too cheesy, why do you like it?
(sorry if it comes off rude, not my intention)

I feel like there's something I don't "get" about it,
I know plenty of people who swear by that movie.

Which reminds me, ...hmm, one of my favorite movies i think i forgot to add to my list, is just of that genre
Serendipity

Anchorman is popping up on lists and that's not even in my top 25 comedies of all time. I did like it, but, top 25? Just don't see it....but, that's what I like about this thread.

It's pretty high up on my list, mainly because it's so ridiculous and quotable. Then again, I have yet to see the "classic" comedies like Dr. Strangelove, Duck Soup, A Night at the Opera, etc...

I personally have never cared for neither Anchorman nor 40 year old virgin,
I think I may have lightly laughed once at each movie,



but then again I ammindlessly entertained and laugh my ass each time I watch Office Space, Annie Hall, Big Lebowski, Meatballs, ...

Well, there is a generational thing going on here, and so that makes it a little more understandable. Again, I saw it in the theater and laughed, definitely a funny movie.

Have you seen Woody Allen comedies like "Manhattan" or "Annie Hall"? You should. And, fuck me for leaving Allen films off of my list.

Nothing mindless about Annie Hall and Big Lebowski.

I liked 40-year old Virgin a lot more than Anchorman.

Love Actually = I am one of the people who swear by that movie. I don't know why. It just feels so good to watch it, it makes me happy and sad every time, I love the different story lines, I love that not everyone got a happy ending, and I just loved that it was able to be funny and dramatic at the same time.

Anchorman is on my list for the same reason that Sister Act is, I've seen both of those movies so many times, I would not doubt the number is around 50. I discovered once that I can quote pretty much every line from the movie without watching it, and I never even meant to see it that many times, it just happens. I love the movie to death, but now I love the idea of the movie more than actually watching it, as I can't really laugh out loud at it anymore. I hate that I killed the movie for myself, but it's a movie people like to watch in group situations, so it happens.

I need to see those too.

I just saw Lebowski all the way through for the first time the other day, that's in the Comedy Top 10 right now, too.

Lebowski is the gift that keeps on giving. Fucking spot-on hilarious every time.

I'm convinced Walter Sobchak may very well be one of the greatest characters of all-time.

He's absolutely merciless to poor Donny.

The more I think about it, the more I feel like Almost Famous should be on my list somewhere.

And Kate Hudson floors me every time I watch Almost Famous. Why is she doing shit like Raising Helen?
