Top 5 Comedy Movies of All-Time

Here are the top 5 comedies of all-time, as I see it.

5. Major League- Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, and Bob Uecker lead the cast as the Cleveland Indians try to go from worst to first. Sound Familiar?
Best Line: After "Wild Thing" throws a ball about 5 feet outside, Bob Ueker says, "Just a bit outside. He tried the corner and missed".

4. My Cousin Vinny- Joe Pesci and Marissa Tomei star in the classic north vs. south comedy about mistaken murder suspects and the judicial system.
Best Line: After having some tire trouble a local walks up and asks what is wrong and Pesci says the car was shimming on the hwy and he told them they had mud in the tire and Pesci responds, "Let me ask you something. How exactly do you get mud into the tire?"

3. Caddyshack- Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray, and Ted Knight lead in this comedy about the snobby country club vs. the rich, obnoxious developer who is a guest of another member.
Best Line: Spalding says "This is good stuff, I got it from a negro. Your probably already high and don't even know it."

2. Tommy Boy- Chris Farley and David Spade are a great duo about a sales road trip after Tommy's father dies. We have all been on road trips, but this is the mother of all road trips.
Best Line: Tommy says "Hey, I tell you what. You can get a good look at a butchers ass by sticking your head up there. But, wouldn't rather take his word for it?"

1. Fletch- Chevy Chase is the master of the facial expressions. The different disguises and one-liners in this movie make it the best comedyof all-time, and the obvious choice.
Best Line: Fletch says to a hot woman in only a towel. "Can I borrow your towel for a sec? My car just hit a water buffalo.

There you go. Let me know your list.

I think the best line was when I told Spalding "You'll get nothing and like it!" Ah, the good old days. Wait, I'm dead...

Mackie said...

Not to be arguementative but in my opinion the best line of Tommy Boy was "You want mint for pillow?...You want me jerk you off?"

My only disagreementm other than that, great post.

I can't believe joe dirt wasn't included in this listing.

It isn't that old or doesn't quite get to this level of honor, however DodgeBall has some incredibly funny one liners. My favorite being "You are as useful as a cock flavored lollypop" along with anything Pepper says during the tournament.

Bop said...

Caddyshack is my all time favorite. "wanna make 14 dollars the hard way?"

Blazing Saddles needs to get some love too. "Where all the white women at?"

Bop said...

Btw mike...that's so dang funny.

The Big Lebowski is the greatest comedic motion picture ever produced. How anyone could leave this off of his list shows the lack of intelligence represented.

Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.

I have to agree with anonymous. The Big Lebowski is the best movie ever....period. "It went alright. Dude's car got a little banged up."

Otto said...

JJ said...

Where to I begin with this one.

Joe Dirt: "I'm about to pick up my Hemi Roadrunner that's right I said Hemi....left it at a friends house, actually it got towed 2 years ago...."

Tommy Boy: "R.T. I lost my virginity to your daughter.....Sammy you were there.."

Dodgeball: "Hey, I've got some hookers in my room, what say we go treat"

But my favorite of all time is a little flick called "Dirty Work" that I'm sure not many have seen:
"You guys are brothers? Well....its a long story. My dad boned his mom. OK, its a short story."

The best from Dirty Work was Don Rickles: "So there you are tubby. You look like a bucket of lard on a bad day. I called Baskin Robbins today. They're down to 5 flavors!"

BayouDawg said...

ok fat boy, i am about to wail on you...

not so much here or here, but here

how did you get the beans above the frank

no one fucks with the one

Mike said...

"Hello ice cream, having a good time running around? Why don't you buy a horse and move to the mountains and don't bother anybody." Don Rickles is classic

BayouDawg said...

he is! he is gonna hit it right off the shitter!

I got one rule boss. Don't bet money you don't have, on a dog race, with an ex-girlfriend, who happens to be a stripper you broke that rule. You are going to have to be nice to her homes....

Great Call on Joe Dirt, and Tin cup is probably my favorite movie of all time.

Great line from Cheech:

Man, you'd bury yourself alive just to prove you could handle the shovel.

JJ said...

Forgot about one more from Dirty Work:
"You should have seen it, we kicked their asses!!! Really? Yeah, except the exact opposite."

JJ said...

And from Tin Cup, not really funny but a great line nonetheless if you are a golfer:
"perfection is unattainable.... weight begins shifting back to the left pulled by the powers inside the earth. It's alive, the swing...a living sculpture.... down through contact..always down, striking the ball crisply with character. A tuning fork goes off in your heart and your loins. Such a pure feeling is the well-struck golf shot. Now the follow through to the finish. Always on line...The reverse C of the Golden Bear!!! The steel workers' power and brawn of Carl Sandburg......Arnold Palmer!!! And the unfinished symphony of Roy McAvoy."

BayouDawg said...

Did that tuning fork ring in your loines, Molly?

Worm said...

I really had a tough time not putting Something About Mary, Wedding Crashers, or Old School in the top five. Never saw The Big Lebowski but I am going to watch it this weekend because of the tention that was created by not having it in the top 5. Good replies everybody. The funniest line in any movie is in Ace Ventura 2. When Ace says to the native: "Excuse me, your balls are showing".

VOLSFAN72 said...

Okay, I might get ripped for this one, but I think one of the funniest lines in any movie came from Christmas Vacation...Clark W. Griswald wanting to see his boss for Christmas..."I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey s**t he is. Hallelujah! Holy s**t! Where's the Tylenol?"

Worm said...

Another great line in Christmas Vacation is when Clark asks Eddie:
"Can I get you anything Eddie? More eggnog? Can I drive you out into the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?

Bop said...

Volsfan...that is my wife's favorite as well.

"Shitter was full"

"Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?" "Naw I'm doin' just fine Clark."

Chevy Chase + Cocaine = Comic Genius

Bop said...

wow nice call there

"Don't you go falling in love with it, we're taking it with us when we leave here next month."

"Every time Catherine turns on the microwave, I piss my pants and forget who I am for a half an hour."

JJ said...

My wife's favorite line in Christmas Vacation is when they are all standing outside the house once they have the lights working, and Clark's dad says "She's a beaut' Clark. A beaut'!!"

You have never heard uncontrolled laughter like what you hear in my house after that line.
