Top 20 Comedies Of All Time

7 Jul

by: Captain Oblivious

This discussion came up with Parts Unknown and I have not been able to get it out of my head since. We were discussing where Dumb and Dumber would rank in a list of greatest comedies ever. So I decided to take some time and make my list and just see where it would land on here. I had projected early possibly in the 15 range….I may have been off with that.

As always opinions will differ and I would love to hear some feedback on what you would have on your list were you to make one. Here are my top twenty with a few honorable mentions.

20. Talladega Nights

19. Trading Places

18. Superbad

17. Office Space

16. National Lampoon’s Animal House

15. The Hangover

14. Tropic Thunder

13. Young Frankenstein

12. National Lampoon’s Vacation

11. The Jerk

10. Hot Shots!

9. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

8. Spaceballs

7. Clerks 2

6. Caddyshack

5. The Naked Gun

4. Airplane

3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

2. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

1. Blazing Saddles

Well…alas poor Dumb and Dumber did not in fact make the list. But it can hold a place with some honorable mentions that would have been listed had I felt like going to 30 or 40.

– The Big Lebowski
– Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls
– There’s Something About Mary
– Groundhog Day
– Dumb and Dumber
– What About Bob?
– Step Brothers
– Team America: World Police
– Get Him to the Greek
– Forgetting Sarah Marshall
– I Love You Man
– Role Models
