Funniest movie of all time? There are two that tie for first place:

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN

Yes, to every one already mentioned!
Every Mel Brooks movie!
Most of Woody's movies.


One many people forget: Murder By Death, most of the cast is gone now - omg, David Niven
married to younger Maggie Smith...hysterical stuff.
Another obscure one: Scenes From The Class Struggle in Beverly Hills -Paul Bartel
Eating Raoul - Paul and Mary Bartel, again.

I forgot about The Phil Story!! 1940?! K. Hepburn, Cary Grant? Wow, can't wait. Thanks Great thread.
I wanna revisit What's Up Doc, too ---I don't rem Madeline Kahn in it.....

Funniest Movie Ever Made?

That’s a tall (subjective) order I can not fill. But my top ten would include some of the Mel Brooks satires mention, Airplane, and...

Trading Places (1983). Mainly due to great casting and acting, across the board, with a subject matter still relevant today. Aykroyd and Murphy at their best.

(We’re long overdue for a pandemic one)

^^^^^^^^This. Very, VERY funny movie. Definitely top 5.

Also, Raising Arizona. Never fails to have me howling with laughter within the first 5 minutes.

Everyone's sense of humor, or what they find funny is different, but some for me are:

Office Space

Planes, Trains, & Automobiles

Tommy Boy

National Lampoons Vacation
