Default Bravo's 100 Funniest Movies List

For some reason I decided to take my rage out on myself, so I watched this. Terrible list. Shrek at number three. Please. The Wedding Singer in the top ten. ****. Napolean Dynamite at fourteen. Jesus. Most of the movies they had on it were probably worthy enough, but the placement seemed very random. Almost all the top movies were quite recent, whilst movies like Young Frankenstein and a lot of other classics didn't crack the top fifty. And seriously, when was any movie with Ben Stiller or Will Farrel funny?

I have no idea what films were in there, but Shrek, Wedding Singer and Napoleon Dynamite have no place. I hope Holy Grail, Spinal Tap, Airplane, etc all made it in there. As for Ben Stiller and Will Ferrel, I liked Zoolander and Anchorman. Apart from those, the other movies they made are arse.

Holy Grail was in the 50s I think.

Spinal Tap was in the 70s.

Airplane was in the top ten.

**** me, really? That's just poor.

Shaun of the dead is another one that deserves to be high but if it was a Bravo one then it probably came low if it appeared at all.

By the way, this isn't film related but just watched Bill Bailey: Part troll, and it's frigging hilarious. Check it out if you're looking for good stand up.

That's a sad list. Tha twas almost as infuriating as when my newspaper was havign a NCAA-style tournament to find the greatest movie of all time (as such, only 64 nominees chosen by the staff which were voted on in rounds...you get it) and Napoleon Dynamite was one of the nominees while Dr. Strangelove was not. Much less 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Speaking of which, did Dr. Strangelove make the list? That would be my top comedy.

Gah, some of them I barely even recognized as a comedy...

Of those that I had even heard of.

Never heard of #1 and #2 for example...

Animal House is a decent number one to have, it's brilliant. The rest of the list sucks. How come Blues Brothers, Young Frankenstein and Groundhog day are so far back, and shite like Wedding Crashers is so high?? As for There's Something About Mary, that has to be the most overrated comedy ever. Dumb & Dumber was so much funnier.

Jesus, Some Like it Hot's not even on the list. I may have missed something due to skimming, but don't see any Billy Wilder at all. Or Charlie Chaplin. And I've never even thought American Graffiti was supposed to be a comedy, more of a drama with humour. Even in the realm of recent, fairly popular stuff it's missing movies like Fight Club and Donnie Darko. What the **** is wrong with these people?

To lauch into hatred mode, how anybody can find The Producers funny is beyond me. Maybe I'm just weird...

And putting films like Wedding Crashers in the top 20 just goes to show that modern films always dominate these lists .

Yea that's simply the worst list I've ever seen. As SamNMax said a lot of those movies probably deserve to be there but definitely not in that order. Whoever made the list either hasn't seen too many movies or forgot that some movies made before 1970 actually were hilarious. Dr Stangelove made it, though (albeit much lower than it should be...).

Fierce Creatures isn't on it...

Yes, I know many people will say that A Fish called Wanda is much better. But I like to disagree, since I prefer the former. AFcW just seems so dreary, I guess...

I thought Fierce Creatures was a bit pants, probably was just expecting another Fish Called Wanda. Two Danny Devito films that should've made the list: Ruthless People and Screwed.

Ah, I was mixing the title up with the german one. Though it's translated literally, "called" is "namens" in german. So, A Fish called Wanda is Ein Fisch namens Wanda in german. And "namens" is of course very similar to "named".
