100 Funniest

Two days ago, I came across Bravo's 100 Funniest Comedies on the ol' TV. And I was rather confused and maybe a little hurt even. Animal House claimed the top spot and while I suppose this can be argued, apparently the funniest movies ever were all made after the 60's. And what good fortune for all of us that a quarter (if not more) were made during our lifetime. Like Meet The Fockers. You remember Meet The Fockers? The 25th best comedy ever? Better than the original Meet The Parents (52) which of course deserved such a deep spot, too. I know how much I still talk about Meet The Parents and I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say, "Meet The Fockers is so funny. Oh my god! It's funnier than Wayne's World (26), A Fish Called Wanda (27), Annie Hall (28), The Big Lebowski (31), Groundhog Day (32), Clerks (33), Rushmore (34), Beetlejuice (35), Monty Python and the Holy Grail (40), Austin Powers (41), Harold and Maude (42), Raising Arizona (45), American Graffiti (48), The Princess Bride (50), Dr. Strangelove (53), Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (54), Young Frankenstein (56), When Harry Met Sally (60), The Pink Panther (62), Manhattan (63), This is Spinal Tap (64), Office Space (65), The Blues Brothers (69), and Ghostbusters (76). You know what else is one of the funniest movies ever? Dodgeball (37)! But, Meet the Fockers! Oh my Lord, the name is even funny! What's that, a pun or something?! So funny. Funnier than City Lights, Animal Crackers, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Odd Couple, The General, The Hudsucker Proxy, Life Of Brian, Some Like It Hot, Brain Candy, Duck Soup, The Gold Rush, The Graduate, Modern Times, Harvey, Horse Feathers, Sherlock Jr, Bullets Over Broadway, A Christmas Story, The Muppet Movie, Back To The Future, The Graduate, Grumpy Old Men, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Sunshine Boys, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Amelie, and Splash."
