Comedy Movies

Do you like comedy movies? If so, what is your favorite and why do you like them?

I love comedies partially due to the fact that the actor's are always great, and who doesn't love a good laugh? If I had to choose a favorite, I would have to go with... aww there's too many to choose! lol.

I have always thought comedians are the VERY best actors. Before the days of video and recordable DVD I used to wake my oldest daughter up to watch a good comedy. (Not when she was going to school mind).... she has always thanked me for it.

Last week I saw a special presentation of Jaques Tati's Mon Uncle. I love this movie.... I used to sit and draw the house over and over.

Then again I loved Jackie Gleeson, and the guy from Uncle Buck... Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese, Oh lets not even start... I love a good comedy.... I could live without music but I couldn't live without good comedy :D

And I dread when you lot DO post what movies you like because I will be like...OHHHH I loved that too......

Edit: Blast! Now I have youtube open watching Tati comedy clips ARGHHHHH!

Empire Records yes, my missus has it and I keep forgetting to write a list of her stuff, even though her DVD rack is right next to my three. :wink: She couldn't stand to have horror films intermingled with her chick flicks. :)
