Both of the "Porkys" films are definitely some of my favourites, I don't really like any recent comedy films but I did like one that came out a couple of years back called; "You Don't Mess With The Zohan". I think that was pretty funny, and it had the guy out of Borat and Ali G in it. :D

Does anyone here other than deldaisy like any comedies made BEFORE 1970?

How about all of the classic Hollywood comedies? If you're willing to put your modern biases aside, you won't find that many films that are better written or funnier than The Marx Bros. "Duck Soup" or "A Night at the Opera." Or "His Girl Friday" with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell. Or "Bringing up Baby" with Grant and Hepburn.

Or, moving into the 1950s, great Billy Wilder movies like "Some Like it Hot" and "The Seven Year Itch" or the excellent Ealing Studios movies with Alec Guinness (King Hearts and Coronets, The Ladykillers, The Lavender Hill Mob).

All these movies can make you laugh out loud with a single fart, poop, vomit or boob joke.

I love Marx Bros and Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton. Just dont have any on DVD yet... They used to show L and H films really regular in the afternoons on the BBC but dont any more. My post 1970s DVD collection really does need some work, though. :)

I've got a few L & H DVDs, and a lot on VHS. I haven't got a video player for the VHS ones though :roll:
