    Top Five Funniest Movies

    I saw "So I Married an Axe Murderer" clip on another thread, and it happens to be one of my favorite funny movies (and I have a soft spot for Nancy Travis).

    What are some others you guys (gals) have enjoyed? I signed up for Netflix so it'll give me a chance to broaden my movie horizons.

    My other four favorites are (in no particular order):

    Goin' South
    Groundhog Day
    Coneheads
    Office Space

    These are movies that, if I come across them while flipping thru channels, I have to stop and watch, no matter how much of the movie is left.

    Purple Rain

    I know it's not a comedy, but I caught the end of it on Encore a couple of weeks ago and was laughing my *** off.

    Re: Top Five Funniest Movies

    Mark me down for Office Space & Caddyshack as well.

    Supertroopers
    Stripes

    Probably too recent to put in an "all time" list, but The Hangover was one of the few movies lately that lived up to the hype

    The Southpark movie was pretty good.

    And Team America: World Police. If for no other reason than the songs.
