Bad Santa
Recommended this to a mate, who went to see it. Texted me to let me know he'd laughed so hard he'd been sick through his nose.

Bad Santa. Duly noted. Have downloaded In Bruges. Going to give that a bash.

For me, you'd go far to better the Mel Brookes films such as Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Silent Movie, High Anxiety etc. If you're in the right mood, Life of Brian can be pretty funny.

That's a good call. Suspect it would even make the Taliban smirk.

"In Bruges" is a great film, but funny it ain't!

If you can find "Hopscotch", starring Walter Matthau, that's loads of fun.

How can racist porno midgets on horse tranquilisers not be funny? :-)

In reply to Murko Fuzz:

Another one - In The Loop, proper side-splitter
Murko Fuzz - on 12 Nov 2013
In reply to ripper: thank you for all the suggestions. I have a new list.

Grosse Pointe Blank

I didn't see Kentucky fried Movie or the Blues Brothers on the list either, but they should be...

In reply to Murko Fuzz:

One of the best comedies I have ever seen is The Guard. Absoloutely brilliant! In Bruges is a good shout too but as well as funny it's very touching and just a great film.

For less "subtle" comedies I really like Horrible Bosses despite how ridiculous it is. In fact anything with Jason Bateman in it! Extract is a good Jason Bateman film as well. And obviously if you haven't seen Hot Fuzz then that should be first on your list.

It is dark, disturbing and hilarious! How can you consider it a great film and not funny?

In reply to Murko Fuzz: Bio Dome - 90's classic immature humour. Only film that's really had me laughing the whole way through. Think that says a lot of negative stuff about me though.

The Castle (australian) is very funny

Man Bites Dog is very funny (in a similar vein to In Bruges..dark humour)
Bad News
Mr Jolly lives next door

Agreed. Funniest film I've seen for a while.

In reply to csw:

What is it with these threads: Dr Stangelove took way too long to arrive and no Brazil, The General, Odd Couple, Some Like it Hot, Pink Panther, Marx Brothers, hardly any Ealing or Woody Allen.

On the more off beat side I'd add Trust, Little Miss Sunshine, Superbad, Galazy Quest, Clockwise and most early Steve Martin films.

In reply to Murko Fuzz:

The Angel's Share (if you speak Glaswegian)
Sightseers
Shallow Grave
Wag the Dog

Trouble with 'really funny' depends if you like sick humour/satire etc: the first 3 on the list might be in one category and the fourth in the other.

But only the first half....all starts to get a little boring after the guys head for the party and McLovin is with the cops.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels been mentioned?
Sideways
Is Election a comedy?

If it hasn't been mentioned yet... In Bruges is great - (in parts you shouldn't find it funny, but you will)

In reply to Murko Fuzz: van wilder, goonies, I love "most" Adam Sandler films. What to expect when your expecting was funny. The cottage with Andy Serkis was really funny in a dark way, as was Dog soldiers. Depends what type of funny you like. Carry on films still get me.
tomrainbow - on 14 Nov 2013
In reply to WILLS: Jarmusch. Night on Earth has the funniest scene in any film ever. Mystery Train is genius and more consistently amusing.

Alongside Trust I would recommend Simple Men.

Oh...and Dumb and Dumber is truly funty.

Jon Stewart - on 14 Nov 2013
In reply to tomrainbow:

Jarmusch is rather quiet, I think. My favourite is probably Coffee and Cigarettes, but I wouldn't describe it as hilarious.
Gary in Germany - on 15 Nov 2013
In reply to Jon Stewart:

A couple I do not think I have seen mentioned

First in Class - About dog owners
Galaxy Quest - Brillient Star treck/Star Wars piss take.
Adams Family Values - So many great one liners.

Another vote for Gross Point Blanc. great film, banging soundtrack
drmarten on 15 Nov 2013
Straight to Hell is a really funny film.

Have ordered In Bruges based on comments above and will look forward to it.
ena sharples - on 18 Nov 2013
In reply to Murko Fuzz: Freebie and the Bean. Not the funniest, but has (possibly) the funniest single scene in any film, ever.
