IDIOCRACY - YES

i haven't even seen the hangover yet. everyone i knew went to go see it like 5 times the week it came out but i was workin midnight-8 at my summer job that week :( and i didn't wanna go to a movie by myself and feel like a loser, i've heard great things though. i just hope that my expectations aren't too high (happened to me with superbad).
 
- The Blues Brothers (not the Blues Brothers 2000, just typing that makes me feel sick :p)
- Happy Gilmore
- Blazing Saddles
- The Frisco Kid
- The Producers (the original 1968 version not the new one. The new one was bad... Really bad.) If you haven't seen the original go watch it now... Now!
- Ferris Beuller's Day Off

I'm probably going to be forum shot for this but I saw the Hangover. It wasn't that great. There were some funny bits but it was really predictable and not so great. (Don't shoot)!

I might be dating myself by saying this but nothing tops Monty Python's movies for comedic relief:

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Life of Brian

I´d also have to put Tommy Boy or Black Sheep on the list somewhere.
As far as Will Ferrell and John C Reilly, Talladega Nights was by far their funniest.

Old School
The Hangover
Blazing Saddles
Sex Drive
Super Troopers
The 40 Year Old Virgin
Wedding Crashers
Zach and Miri Make a Porno

I would say this is my collection of funny movies for the past 2 years. I saw someone posted Miss March, I just watched that the other day and it was not the entertaining imo but I could have built it up too much before watching it and ruin the experience. The Hangover is gonna be on AMC in no time. Excellent film. Lloyd

Funny as this was supposed to be a drama/horror movie :eek:
i'm pretty sure that Shyamalan made a terrible movie on purpose. i just don't see how a director like himself (like him or not, he's made some great movies) and and an actor like Wahlberg could make such a failure. :D

if you haven't seen the movie, this pretty much sums it up

Bad Boys 1 and 2
Glad to see I am not the only one who thought Bad Boys was really funny. Particularly the first one. "You see me, I got my shirt off, you see Mike, he half butt-naked. Then you see the white girl." :D

Friday was pretty great, too. Although I think I see a hemp thread running through your list of choices. ;)

+1 for Trading Places, too. Great old school classic. :)
