Default Top 5 funniest films

I know we have a favourite movies thread, but I thought it'd be kind of nice to know people's funniest films. I feel when it comes to favourite films, people have to give films with a bit of substance and films that are thought provoking, there are some comedies that can have both. But I feel like everyone loves a good comedy, but they often get overlooked. It's so hard to make a good comedy, because the script has to be right. Otherwise it's not just a bad movie, it's a bad movie that's not only bad, but it can be desperate for laughs and in some cases offensive. So when I find a genuinely hilarious film I love them.

1) The Big Lebowski - weird, quirky, mistaken identity, idiosyncratic characters, the ashes scene, the fact 'The Dude' doesn't bowl ONE ball, and an interesting plot all make for a very funny film indeed.
2) Borat - The shock factor of this film just made it really special. I couldn't believe what I was seeing, it probably doesn't stand up when you view it more than once, but watching it in the cinema was just unbelievable.
3) Anchorman - One of the most quotable comedies ever? - Oh Ron, there are literally thousands of other men that I should be with instead, but I am 72 percent sure that I love you.
4) Shaun of The Dead - One of the least funny films on the list, but I thought it was great.
5) Happiness - Sick. Some might say offensive and desperate, but I thought it was a tremendously funny film.

Time out.

"Best Comedies" or "Funniest Comedies"?

Well, my idea of a funny comedy isn't offensive mindless trash. So it depends on your perception really. I think a funny comedy has to be good. But that's entirely down to the person making the list.

Bollocks, I missed off Withnail & I. That's far funnier than Shaun of the Dead. FML.

Meh, I completely disagree. So, which is it before I make a list?

Best and funniest go hand in hand for me, I can't watch something that's complete trash and find it hilarious.

Do a list of genuinely good hilarious films and then another list of utter trashy lulz?

Okay.

The Big Lebowski is a top 5 Coen's film, but certainly not their best. I'm yet to see Raising Arizona but I've had it on DVD for a while now, I need to get round to watching it.

but i would like to suggest: Dr. Strangelove and Office Space.
