Favorite Old Comedy/Stupid Movie

Recommended Posts

Today I was looking at a post that mentioned the movie Johnny Dangerously from 1984.  I'd forgotten that one, but I remember I used to have it on VHS.  So, what's your favorite old (before the Snowflakes took over) movie.  Stupid, funny, or any combination.  I still love Dodgeball and Blazing Saddles if for nothing else than the beans scene.

I have never laughed harder at a movie then I did the first time I saw Blazing Saddles

 

And does "O Brother!  Where Art Thou?"  count as a comedy?  Love that one too.

Without a doubt, Young Frankenstein, followed closely by The Great Race, then Caddyshack (mainly because of Rodney Dangerfield).

My choice, too.

 

 "Damn your eyes!"

 

"Too late."

 

OR

 

"Put the candle back."

Abbot and Costello or Way Out West for old comedy.

 

My Name Is Nobody has some great comedy that beats Blazing Saddles for an individual scene.  Blazing Saddles is better for constant laughs, as expected from a Mel Brooks movie.  Maybe 1941 for a modern movie.  Office Space gets honorable mention because technical issues with office equipment is a universal truth. 

 

Is A Million Ways To Die In The West considered a millennial movie with Seth MacFarland?

Pardners should be in the list somewhere.

 Well, this movie is not really “old,” as such......1983.....37 years ago?  I guess that’s “old,” huh?

 

Funniest movie ever, for me.

 

”NATIONAL LAMPOON’S VACATION”  -  1983

lt's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

 

Funniest Movie ever for me.

 

First saw this movie in a theater at Fort Bliss, Texas.  I had my foot propped on the back of the chair in front of me.  I got to laughing so hard at one scene ("I told you we shouldn't move to California") that my foot slipped off and I accidentlly kicked a little boy in the back of the head.  When he turned around, rubbing his head and looking at me, I couldn't even apologize for my additional laughter.  My stomach muscles hurt for three days from having laughed so hard.

Old movies - Arsenic and Old Lace (Cary Grant, Peter Lorre) - The Thin Man (William Powell, Myrna Loy) - Duck Soup (Marx Brothers)- classics with style, funny and snappy.

 

Movies my kids say are old - Young Frankenstein - Airplane - stylish, funny, and quick witted. Honorable mention - Caddyshack (the best Rodney Dangerfield) and The Pink Panther with Peter Sellers.

 

Western - Evil Roy Slade and McClintock.

 

Honorable mention - not really a comedy per se but many funny scenes - The Quiet Man. 

 

Amended to add per Pat's post - Monty Python's Holy Grail and The Princess Bride - shouldn't have left those off.
