    UHF was pretty funny. Purple Rain was also funny but not by design.

    tough to pick a favorite out of there. 1980 produced another very good, funny movie "Hollywood Knights" Anyone else like that one?

    Yes to the "'Knights". I'm sure my wife is sick of me saying "a perfect horse's *****" by now.

    A few more that were not top 10 but we still rented a lot back in college were
    Up The Creek
    Hot Dog the Movie

    I should try to find those to see what I think of them now

    "Fletch" is Chevy Chases' best acting in a movie--better than his Vacation movies or Caddyshack. He is hilarious, and mutters many references 98% of the viewers were clueless about..

    ..like when he is in the newspaper offices and mentions "Vickie Morgan" tapes
