Just for Laughs

It's been a while since I have participated in this, but I do enjoy reading everyone's responses, and the topic and the timing have hit me in just the right way this week, so here you go.

10 Favorite Comedy Movies

I have many favorite comedy movies, but here are ten that came to mind, in no particular order.

1.  Some Like It Hot - this movie has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl.

2.  The Producers - I can't help it, but every time I hear someone say something like "I'm hysterical" [laughing], it's all I can do not to say, "I'm wet, I'm wet!"

3.  Caddyshack - stupid.  Hilariously stupid.

4.  The Thin Man - sophisticated and funny - one of my fave combinations!

5.  National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - I can almost recite this one.

6.  Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - John Candy and Steve Martin.   Brilliant.

7.  Indiscreet - the part where Cary Grant dances at the party makes me laugh so hard that I cry, every single time I see it.

8.  Shaun of the Dead - yes, there were creepy parts (I'm easily creeped out), but it was also really funny.

9.  Revenge of the Nerds - stupid, yes, but "Oh my God - I've kissed a NERD!" is one of the best lines ever.

10.  Dave - I think this one is charmingly funny.

Once I started thinking, so many more popped into my brain.  But it's Ten on Tuesday, not However Many You Can Think Of Tuesday ...

Yay for Some Like It Hot! We introduced the kids to it last summer, and they found it a hoot, too.
