Which films make you laugh?

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.


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

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

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...

... Better watch for yourself what happens next.

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



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.

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!

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.

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.

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. Life of Brian is slightly less Pythonesque but it's brilliant. The part where the centurian corrects Brian on his Latin is hilarious.

I watched that last night. 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......

haha, that burp is my dad's favorite part. he laughs for such a long time!

my personal favorite is when he gets hit by the taxi.  i almost died!

and when he sings the Christmas-gram to his dad.
"i'm here with my dad. and we never met. and he wants me to sing him a song. and he never knew i was born. but i'm here now! daddy! and guess what, i love you i love you i love youuuuu!"
hahahahaahhhahaha

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

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

I can't really think of many. I prefer drama over comedy...

*just thought*

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)
Mr. Deeds (Sandler)

I've wanted to see Zoolander, but haven't yet.
