    Ranking literal LOL's

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/f...rch-finds.html

    I generally agree with the list, although I would put Naked Gun as a "1a" with Airplane. I also think I cracked up much more during Borat than I did for Hangover.

    I really agree with the bottom one. I never found the Monty Python series very funny.

    No "Animal House"?

    The fact that Dumb and Dumber as well as Blazing Saddles aren't on this list makes it a joke in itself IMO.

    usually i get sick of movies after i watch them a few times, but those movies are classics. I can watch them at least 3-4 times a week and be happy.

    Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein are both in my top ten funniest of all times list. This reminds me of that fucked up "greatest" rock band list.

    Airplane and Naked Gun should be on top.

    They blow away the other 8 on the list.

    I also found these two lesser known films to be really funny:

    I think the point of this list is the amount of jokes or gags in the movie.
    Businesses that make money by collecting & selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.

    Aside from Dumb and Dumber and Blazing Saddles, films just off the top of my head that blow away 7-10...

    Kingpin

    Up In Smoke

    The Blues Brothers

    Better Off Dead

    Friday

    Me, Myself and Irene (Jim Carey's best performance IMO)

    Something About Mary

    Clerks

    Beavis And Butthead Do America

    The South Park Movie

    Spaceballs

    Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

    Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    Which is kind of subjective.

    Yeah, it's ranking laughs per minute... I would argue a few of those movies I just listed still have 7-10 beat. Something About Mary, Me, Myself and Irene, and also Dumb and Dumber have to have that shit beat. And what about Ace Ventura????

    And how could I forget Easy Money and Back to School...

    Yeah, I think 3 jokes a minute is a reach.

    But still love Airplane.

    Saw the movie Zero Hour(the movie Airplane spoofed), funny as hell after watching Airplane so many times.

    Lovefilm is a UK-based outfit so this survey will be based on British tastes. Life of Brian is easily my favourite comedy movie bar none.

    Blazing Saddles is great but it is not shown much here (not as often as it should be) so maybe missed out for that reason.
