So I was talking with my brother and somehow we got on the topic of movies. I challenged him to tell me the movies he considers the five funniest of all time.

  1. Blazing Saddles
  2. Caddyshack
  3. Monty Python’s Meaning of Life
  4. Coming to America
  5. National Lampoon’s Vacation

Here’s the sheriff arrival scene from Blazing Saddles. (BTW, I don’t think that I typed my brother’s preferences in order.) What do you think? What would you add or subtract?

JW adds his list –

  1. Seven Chances
  2. Princess Bride
  3. Rocketman
  4. The Kid (1921)
  5. It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World


I must admit that I haven’t seen Seven Chances or Rocketman. The Princess Bride is one of my favorites. Here’s a scene:

My good friend TCB weighs in with some great films:

  1. Animal House
  2. Ghostbusters
  3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  4. Hangover
  5. Another vote for It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad Mad World

Wow, these are some really, really great films.  Here’s a clip from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
