So what's your top funny films?

My top ten would be:

Life Of Brian

The Holy Grail

The Blues Brothers

The Princess Bride

Harold And Maude

The Pink Panther Strikes Again

The Meaning Of Life

The Plank


Man With Two Brains

I agree the Python collection is a must.


The classic PLANK is great! And I've got both versions, equally as good as each other.


But how could we leave out THE JERK and STIR CRAZY?

Or even WITHNAIL AND I for that darker edged humour.

Also if FAMILY GUY ever make a movie, it's likely to top them all.

God was drunk when he made me, but that's OK 'cause I forgive him.

The AFI top 50 listing didn't mention many very funny films, check it out online.

It's surprising what rubbish the institute had in their list and what they missed out.

The Gods Must Be Crazy wasn't mentioned either and that would have to be in my top fifty.

Interview God
"Come in," God said to me, "so, you would like to interview Me?"
"If you have the time," I said. (wow power leveling)

He smiled through His beard and said: "My time is called eternity and is enough to do everything; what questions do you have in mind to ask me?"

"None that are new to you. What's the one thing that surprises you most about mankind?"

He answered: "That they get bored of being children, are in a rush to grow up, and then long to be children again. That they lose their health to make money and then lose their money to restore their health. That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live neither for the present nor the future. That they live as if they will never die, and they die as if they never had never lived..."

His hands took mine and we were silent. After a long period, I said, "May I ask you another question?"

He replied with a smile. Sro Gold

"As a Father, what would you ask your children to do for the new year?"

"To learn that they cannot make anyone love them. What they can do is to let themselves be loved.

To learn that it takes years to build trust, and a few seconds to destroy it.

To learn that what is most valuable is not what they have in their lives, but who they have in their lives.

To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others. There will be others better or worse than they are.

To learn that a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.

To learn that they should control their attitudes, otherwise their attitudes will control them.

To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in persons we love, and that it takes many years to heal them. World of Warcraft power leveling,

To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.

To learn that there are persons that love them dearly, but simply do not know how to show their feelings.

To learn that money can buy everything but happiness.

To learn that while at times they may be entitled to be upset, that does not give them the right to upset those around them.

To learn that great dreams do not require great wings, but a landing gear to achieve.

To learn that true friends are scarce, he/she who has found one has found a true treasure.

To learn that they are masters of what they keep to themselves and slaves of what they say.

To learn that they shall reap what they plant; if they plant gossip they will harvest intrigues, if they plant love they will harvest happiness.

To learn that true happiness is not to achieve their goals but to learn to be satisfied with what they already achieved.

To learn that happiness is a decision.  They decide to be happy with what they are and have, or die from envy and jealousy of what they lack. world of warcraft power leveling

To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see something totally different.

To learn that those who are honest with themselves without considering the consequences go far in life.

To learn that even though they may think they have nothing to give, when a friend cries with them, they find the strength to appease the pain.

To learn that by trying to hold on to love ones, they very quickly push them away; and by letting go of those they love, they will be side by side forever.

To learn that even though the word "love" has many different meanings, it loses value when it is overstated.

To learn that they can never do something extraordinary for Me to love them; I simply do. wow power level

To learn that the shortest distance they could be from Me is the "the distance of a prayer."

Blazing Saddles does it for me, but I must admit to liking some really, really terrible 80's comedies from my childhood
