Title: Which films make you laugh?
Post by: Caz on December 16, 2006, 06:45:13 pm

[color=Blue]A study has shown that people don't laugh enough as they get older. For that purpose, I'd like to start a thread about funny movies and I'd like to ask you:

Which film has the ability to train those stomach muscles and make your cheeks hurt from laughter? Post its title here and let us all join in on the fun. ;D


I'd like to start with the first one:
Overboard (1987)

Taken from ImdB (because I'm not so good at writing summaries) ;D

Joanna Slayton is very rich and very spoiled. When she falls overboard from her yacht in the harbor of a small Oregon town she develops amnesia. She's taken in by Dean Profitt, a local carpenter she's previously maligned. Profitt, in revenge, persuades her that she is his wife and the mother of his four boys...
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093693/

... Better watch for yourself what happens next. ;)

I don't think I'll ever get tired of Austin Powers: Goldmember. ;D



This is a good thread idea. I've been feeling the need to watch funny movies lately myself.

One of my favorite funny movies is also one of Elijah's: Chain of Fools, released in 2000. He plays a teenage assassin, pardon me, hitman ;) named Mikey. If you haven't seen it, you really should.

Post by: Haru on December 17, 2006, 02:54:49 am

I would have to say either Goldmember, Robin Hood Men In Tights or Monty Python and The Holy Grail....

There are so many! I'm going to have to post like 200 times on this thread LOL! ;D

I often don't like comedies cause they really can't make me laugh. But... there's one that, when I first saw it, made me and my mom laugh so hard our bellies hurt. That movie was "The Gods must be crazy". It's so crazy, so funny but also so silly.

If you like comedies and haven't seen this one yet, I can totally recommend it.

Title: Re:Which films make you laugh?
Post by: jubeth on December 17, 2006, 11:54:10 am

GroundHog Day always makes me laugh no matter how many times I watch it.

I am sure there are more but that is all I can think of at the moment.

Title: Re:Which films make you laugh?
Post by: Raiwen on December 17, 2006, 02:02:37 pm

Life of Brian and Monty Python and the Holy Grail never fail to crack me up. Holy Grail is just so damn silly, and it's like an extended Flying Circus sketch. Plus it has the Knights who say Ni. 8) Life of Brian is slightly less Pythonesque but it's brilliant. The part where the centurian corrects Brian on his Latin is hilarious. ;D

I watched that last night. ;D The funniest part for me was the surprising Jack-in-the-boxes. That and the very very long burp. My cat was sitting on the couch facing away from the TV at the moment and after about a few seconds the cat stared at the TV screen for as long as it took the burp to end. We laughed and laughed......

the original MIB (Men in Black). Will Smith is hilarious. :) And it's a classic movie. 8)

Bruce Almighty! *laughs* I've always loved Jim Carrey. :)

AHAHAHAHA I LOVE Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler, sooooo

50 First Dates (Sandler)
Happy Gilmore (Sandler)
Along Came Polly (Stiller)
Meet the Fockers (didn't see the 1st one...yet, lol) [Stiller]
The Water Boy (Sandler)

Oh yeah! Bruce Almighty made all of us fall off our seats laughing the first time in the theater. ;D The funniest part ever was when Jim Carrey made Steve Carell do funny things in front of the camera. "Lablabla, Ehblablacahcahpoopoo, aPEEPEE!! Ahahaha....ha"

My mom said she couldn't breath because it kept going on and on.

I was just about to recommend Elf myself, but a few people got there first. I watched it last night and by choice I would have never picked that film up as I don't usually like this kind of comedy. I don't usually find them funny when most other people find them hilarious, but this one I liked. I want to see it again already ^^

That's funny Carina. ;D

I suppose so many people are watching it because it's Christmas? I went around to a friends house and we couldn't decide what to watch so he suggested that.

Now I want to see Bruce Almighty again. I saw it at the cinema but that was quite a long time ago now.

The first time I saw 'There's something about Mary' we were just literally rolling over the floor of laughing. Especially the part were the dog is on fire ::).

I don't remember if I mentioned Shrek, but that's a classic. I like the 2nd one too, but it wasn't quite as funny. Funny, but not quite as. It was still good though. :)

The 1st Scary Movie has made me laugh a lot. I think because me and my friend used to love the Scream films and that's mainly a rip off of them, and there's one or two inside jokes there too, which remind me of when I was in high school.

Princess Bride
Ice Age (Hey, Lord of the Flame you tail's on fire)
Over The Hedge (some parts were pretty funny)
Pirates of the Caribbean

and you may think I am really weird....
but part of Spiderman (it was so hard for me to take the appearance of the Green Goblin seriously)
and Kevin Spacey had some funny lines in Superman Returns.

Title: Re:Which films make you laugh?
Post by: Haru on January 14, 2007, 02:07:54 am

^Hahaha! My friends give me the strangest looks when i'm laughing in that film ;D I think that Fight Club is very witty and quirky; it cheers me up if i'm feeling a bit sad because (when you think about it) it has a happy ending! I just love Tyler Durden, he has some great lines - "Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken". And the funniest line from the narrator - "The first person who comes out of this room gets a-a LEAD SALAD!!!!".

But I have a very strange sense of humour, i'll laugh at some things that nobody else does - a good example of this is when I started to giggle in Sin City - but I also laugh at normal things! I nearly died laughing in Monty Python's Holy Grail at the rabbit!!

I just love to laugh ;D

"Airplane" and just about anything else like it; any movie by Mel Brooks; almost anything with Jackie Chan. And even though it was supposed to be a horror movie, "The Faculty" made me howl.

I don't get into gross or sexual humor, so I tend to avoid most comedies.

The only thing that's mildly worrying me about the Simpsons is that it might drag a bit...like Wallace and Gromit, the short ones of those are brilliant but the movie just couldn't sustain it.

Don't get me wrong, I did like Curse of The Were-Rabbit, but I just felt it didn't have a good enough storyline to fill an entire movie. I know what you mean about the Simpsons, but I'll definately be going.

'Everything is Illuminated' makes me laugh .......and then later on, it makes me cry. I love books that make me both laugh and cry, so perhaps that's why I adore that film so much - I must like extremes of emotion!

All the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films make me laugh, too - mainly because of the wonderful Captain Jack Sparrow. And another one that springs to mind at the moment is 'Johnny English' - I don't usually like slapstick humour, but Rowan Atkinson does it so well!
There must be loads more, but my mind's gone blank..... ::)

I just noticed this thread but thought Iíd mention a movie Iíve always enjoyed, my children love it; itís for general audiences and I used to bring it to show on long bus trips to swim meets. "Murder by Death" is the funniest movie Iíve seen and definitely one of my top 10 favorites. Itís a spoof on famous detectives and their techniques that is a bit silly but still hilarious. Itís pretty old, from 1976 which might be why a lot of people here havenít heard of it but itís a Neil Simon film, starring Peter Falk, Alec Guinness, David Niven, Nancy Walker and lots of other old stars that unfortunately are no longer living. I would recommend it highly. Itís available at Blockbuster for rent or Barnes/Nobles for purchase.

here in germany there is a new film out called "Keinohrhasen" the translation would be something like "No ear rabbits" there is no english version og it i think but if you speak german you must go and see it! it's the first film that i saw in a long time where the whole cinema couldn't stop laughing!

"Death at a funeral" is the funniest film I've seen in a long time!
I'd never heard of it until my brother made me sit down and watch it. My whole family were crying from laughing at it.

Highly recommended! Go see it now! ;)

Flying High was the first movie I remember falling into the aisles laughing at but was only a kid then.

Intolerable Cruelty with George Clooney
Lock Stock and two smoking Barrels.

The first half of Everything is Illuminated is LMAO hilarious.
I also got a kick out of Chain of Fools and Huck Finn, if we are talking Elijah movies.

I'll think of more later.

Just watched the clip but dunno, maybe if I knew the movie's storyline it would seem funnier :-\


Oh, just thought of these:

High Fidelity and The Sure Thing with John Cusack
Four Weddings and a Funeral/About A Boy with Hugh Grant
Early Steve Martin movies - The Man With Two Brains/The Lonely Guy/Roxanne
Two Hands with Heath Ledger
Bridget Jones Diary

Elizabeth, I am the opposite - Huck Finn has some REALLY sad moments it's true (like the whipping scene - saddest for me!) but is packed full of humourous banter and features young Elijah at his cheeky best!! ;) ;D :D

I have yet to see the Frighteners - it is on the (very long!) list.

Also, I totally forgot the Pirates of the Carribean movie - well, dunno about No. 3, it lost me somewhat! ::)

I'll add 'Heathers' to my others on this thread.

It stars Winona Ryder and Christian Slater and is a really sharp black comedy from the late eighties.

Anything Austin Powers or Family Guy related makes me laugh. But what has had me at the point where I couldn't breath from laughing was actually LOTR.

I know it's not a "comedy" persay but some friends of mine and I have been known to polish off quite a bit of redwine and chuckle at parts of that film. Mostly Gollum.

Probaby one of the funniest moments is Smeagols agonizing wail..with his little pinched up puppet face screaching into the camera.

I don't think it's supposed to be funny. But it's funny. ;D


Maybe that's why there are so many funny LOTR parodies because it is SO serious and so obviously fictional.

It did that to me too, but try it again and it becomes a lot clearer.

Pirates 2 had some great comedy scenes - the giant wheel? Jack as a kebab? Hilarious. :)

Wonderful topic! ;D

I would recommend "Tropic Thunder", "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "Grosse Pointe Blank", "Zoolander" and "Borat".

If you also like music, there are at least three great comedies to watch: "Tenacious D The Pick Of Destiny", "School Of Rock" and my all-time favorite movie "High Fidelity". ;D
