I need something to cheer myself up. Back to movies, especially comedies!
The improtant question of the day: What is the funniest movie of all time?
I made an informal list a while ack, so I'll share a few entries....
1. "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" What's NOT to love about this movie? Silliness, historical accuracy (how do we know that Arthur's boys didn't "gallop" while banging cocnut shells?), and biting social satire ("Oh, King, Eh? Very nice. And how'd you get to be that then? By exploiting the workers! By hanging onto Imperialisitc dogma....!")
2. (TIE) "National Lampoon's Animal House" and "Caddyshack." Screwball humor has NEVER been done better than by these two films!
3. "There's Something About Mary" Silly, sophomoric humor and a sweet little love story at it's heart. A keeper.
4. "Blazing Saddles" Three words - "The Bean Scene." And overall a funny film.
Just a few. After I see how the gay marriage debate went, I'm breaking one of 'em out. A surefire guarentee for the blues.
Peace, love, and laughs.
